announcing our new City Weekend fabric collection for Moda

We are very pleased to announce the first Oliver + S fabric collection, City Weekend, produced by Moda. Here’s a preview for you.

City Weekend Photo

City Weekend debuts next month at Quilt Market, where fabric store buyers place orders for the following season. We don’t want to discuss too much about the collection yet (since it’s not going to be available in stores for several months), but we are looking forward to sharing more details with you when we return from Quilt Market.

City Weekend LogoSuffice it to say that in addition to the printed cottons, City Weekend also includes interlock knit fabrics. So of course we’ve been busy designing some new Oliver + S patterns to highlight the knits. Stay tuned for more details!

    Wow, that is so exciting. Congratulations to you, and fantastic for us. Since I have absolutely loved everything that O&S has created, I can’t wait to see the complimenting fabrics. Patiently (not really) waiting to see the collection.

  12. April 21, 2010 at 10:51 am Link

    Beautiful fabrics! I cannot wait. And knits too?!? Really, really exciting news!

  13. April 21, 2010 at 10:57 am Link

    how exciting! sorry for this basic question, but what is interlock knit fabric?

  14. April 21, 2010 at 11:07 am Link

    Hi Cheryl,

    Interlock is a more stable knit than T-shirt jersey. It doesn’t curl at the edges and is very easy to sew. We’ve really been having a lot of fun working with it because it can be made into such a wide variety of apparel types: little tops, dresses, pants, you name it. You don’t need a serger to sew it–we’ve been using a regular sewing machine. And of course we’ll teach you how to sew it in our upcoming patterns. I think you’re going to enjoy working with it–the patterns come together very quickly and look terrific when they’re finished.

  15. April 21, 2010 at 11:23 am Link

    Wow, that looks like a great collection! I can’t wait to see it in person. Congratulations!

  16. April 21, 2010 at 11:44 am Link

    super pretty fabric…can’t wait to make a project with it πŸ™‚

    I am beyond excited! I love the fabrics in the picture and cannot wait to choose some to sew for my daughter.

  23. April 21, 2010 at 1:37 pm Link

  24. April 21, 2010 at 1:42 pm Link

    How exciting! I can’t wait to get a better view!

  25. April 21, 2010 at 1:44 pm Link

    thanks for the answer to my question. although i do love much of the quilting cotton available, sometimes both my kiddos and i want something a little closer to knit (without compromising on all the cuteness) to make your patterns in…. sounds perfect! can’t wait until it’s available and also for the upcoming patterns!!

  34. April 21, 2010 at 9:12 pm Link

    Wow! How exciting! I can’t wait to see what knit patterns you come up with to go with your fabric!

  35. April 21, 2010 at 10:05 pm Link

    They look lovely. Are you planning to sell the interlock fabric yourself or only through shops? I know my local quilt shop is reluctant to carry garment fabrics.

  36. April 21, 2010 at 11:55 pm Link

    I cannot wait! These are exquisite. Thank you for sharing a peek.

  37. April 22, 2010 at 12:21 pm Link

    If the rest look like that red, I can’t wait!!! That one looks amazing, I need to sign up for a few yards of it right now. Congratulations… can’t wait to see more.

  38. April 22, 2010 at 12:22 pm Link

    Knits! Oh Liesl, you’re my hero.

  39. April 22, 2010 at 6:12 pm Link

    Oh my, all so gorgeous! I’m completely intrigued by the knit- bring it on!! πŸ™‚

    Congratulations on the fabric line. Are you going to have little people instead of colour spots on the selvedge?

    Are these available, I saw an outfit in Flickr made up, was that lady trying them out?

    1. May 13, 2010 at 9:41 am Link

      The fabric won’t be available for several months yet. What you saw in the Flickr group were samples made for Quilt Market.
