I'm so excited for you to see my new collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics called Fresco! I've created another mottled texture for your stash-building and we're bringing it to you in 59 colors to start with.

Fresco has a more hand-painted look than any of the other marbled, mottled textures I've designed and we spent a LOT of time in the engraving and strike-off process to be sure that the pieces you find in your local quilt shop will look like the painting that left my studio only a few of months ago!

I hope you'll be as excited as I am to have another textural choice in your stash of blenders and basics. Whenever you want your finished pieces to  have the look of hand-painted fabrics, I hope Fresco will be the fabric you turn to.

I'd love to hear what you think of it.



  1. I really like the dyed look and shades, would be wonderful to use with your patterns.


  2. Fresco is beautiful!

    Colors are "true" and saturated. Just the right amount of contrast, and without that awful white blotchy look of some marbled fabrics.

    Keep 'em coming, Patrick.
