Quilts of a Winter Menagerie by Jason Yenter.

I like to start with a theme whenever I sit down to design a new collection of fabrics and quilts. When it comes to winter there are so many possibilities, but when I came across a bunch of pictures of animals in the snow, I knew just what I wanted to do.

My winter menagerie of frolicking animals takes place in a magical forest of beautiful trees and sparkling snow. I like to think of all the animals working together to prepare for a giant winter festival to be held on a crisp clear night with a sky full of bright stars.

The quilts in this book can be used to decorate your home for your own winter festival. Each one would make a dramatic wallhanging in a living or dining room. Create some matching pillows, placemats, or tablecloths, then invite some friends over to share the beauty of your home and the magic of the season.

Enjoy! - Jason Yenter

The Quilts of Atlantis by Jason Yenter.

I have always had a fascination with the legend of Atlantis. The first collection of fabrics I designed, in 1997, was called Atlantis - The Lost Fabrics, and now I have gone back to further explore this mysterious city.

This time around I wanted to focus on the sea life that may now inhabit the ruins of Atlantis. Fish, turtles, sharks, manta rays, jellyfish, and maybe even a mermaid or two. Bright colors glow next to rich blues, and graceful organic elements play off geometric angles.

I really enjoyed designing the quilts for this book. The quilts are a fun combination of kaleidoscopic elements, curves, and fabrics that have a beautiful glow. I hope you have fun with these new designs and feel free to make changes while creating your own legendary quilt.

Enjoy! - Jason Yenter
