New fabric by Judie Rothermel

Here at l'uccello we are delighted to bring you two new ranges from designer Judie Rothermel, 'Authentic Minatures' and 'Peace and Unity' who recently celebrated 25 years as a design innovator with Marcus fabrics. Her designs draw on her love of antique quilts that she started  collecting with her husband in the 1970's. She is attracted to soft colours found in quilts from about 1850-1865 favouring browns, grey blues and dirty purples.

'War and Peace' designed by Judie Rothermel

'Authentic Minatures' designed by Judie Rothermel

Specializing in 1930's fabrics reproduction and designs from the civil war era and related periods Judie creates divine fabrics drawing 'beautiful stories from classic designs and incorporating subtle variations to give them an updated look'.
