The fabric line that was meant to be: Kismet

Paula Nadelstern's mouth-watering new collection, Kismet, is coming to a quilt shop near you! 

Playing on the idea of "kismet," a word she learned from her Broadway-loving father, Paula says "Clearly, this collection was meant to be: my destiny to design the charismatic patterns and your fate to make fabulous quilts with them." That's a fate we'd all happily take! 

Let's start with the Mandala print, featuring Paula's lush kaleidoscope designs. 
Mandala is available in three colorways
Both Dragonettes and Liquid Lace are bilaterally symmetrical patterns
(we're showing a close-up of each so you can appreciate the detail, as well as how it prints across the fabric width)

Kismet features two different coordinating prints, each available in a wide variety of colors.
Flash Dance, which Paula shows ideas for in her new book, Fabricadabra:
Flash Dance
 And Alchemy, which she describes as a leftover chemistry experiment gone wrong.
