Carolyn Friedlander, herself says:

"Polk is an 8-piece collection printed on Robert Kaufman’s Essex Yarn Dyed Homespun–a substrate that I’ve loved ever since they first released it. Homespun ... is a cotton/linen blend. .. [W]hat I really like about it is the woven grid created by how the light and dark yarns are woven to create it. It’s really lovely!

It’s also a super useful fabric... Homespun is a dream to work with–for quilts, clothes, accessories. It can stand up to a massive number of tasks and desired sewing projects. The utility coupled with the rich texture and look made it a no brainer that I wanted to pitch some design ideas for a collection using it.

Polk is just that. The designs themselves take some of the ideas from Gleaned a step further. I found that I wasn’t quite done playing with those shapes, plus I like the idea of there being a continuation since one of my favorite things to do with linen collections is to mix them with printed cotton collections–it’s so much fun and the results can be beautiful.

... The artwork on top is printed in an array of colors to complement and add interest to the base color. The deep blue print has a really interesting effect that comes across kind of like a starry night sky. While I keep looking at that one in new ways depending on the project, all of them have a little something different to offer as well. It’s been fun figuring out projects and fabric combinations to explore those different things."
