Don’t Look Now!


Let me introduce you to Kellie Wulfsohn of Don’t Look Now! Her designs stopped me in my tracks at Quilt Market last week. Cheerful and whimsical, Kellie’s designs feature flowers and leaves, trees, butterflies and smiling children swirling across the surface of her quilts, which nearly always have white, cream or light-colored backgrounds. Aren’t they charming?


Her booth was light and airy, with darling fabric garlands draped across the poles.

“Worry Dolls”
Her designs are very contemporary and fresh, with a distinctive look I love. Kellie hails from Melbourne, Australia, and you can see more of her patterns, and purchase them here.

GIVEAWAY! Leave a comment on this post before noon EST on Sunday, November 14. Tell me what you think of Kellie’s designs. I'll pick one name at random to win this bag made with Northcott Fabric’s Stonehenge fabric line, and their cute pink and white breast cancer awareness apron (shown above). Note that these items have nothing whatsoever to do with Don’t Look Now! designs. I just have a bunch of stuff from Quilt Market that I want to give away to my loyal blog readers. 

There’s still a bit more Quilt Market loot to give away in my next few posts, so please come back for a chance to win! 

WE HAVE A WINNER: Christa Irell won the tote bag and apron!

  4. Kellie's style makes me think of spring- and wouldn't it be cool to have lovely quilts throughout the house all year long to remind you of the freshness and re-birth of spring? I love it!

  6. I love her designs and her quilting is to die for!
    I would have loved to have these patterns available to me when my girls were little, they would have been great to decorate their rooms with, pillows/quilts...
    the tree on the green background is something I really want to try for ME!
    thanks for sharing the pictures of market with us always fun to see what will be coming out and inspiration as well...

  22. Her designs are so fun. I have no kids to make for, but I would love to do charity quilts and the new kids prints would be fun to work with. Love the new stonehenge collection.

  31. Kellie's designs are so happy and cheerful. I'd love to make a quilt from them.

  32. I do like her designs. The large quilts are interesting, in that they do not feature a central medallion or borders...just lots of lovely "all-over-applique!"

    ReplyDelete
  33. The designs are very refreshing- clean and pretty.

  34. Kellie is the BEST! and I'm not just saying that because we are both Aussies! She will be very successful in her career, not just because of her great products but she is a lovely person as well!
