I don't usually present information found in other blogs as I try to be original in my posting and it also avoids the train wreck of using other people's material without proper credit, BUT, I had to share this little bit of news I learned about today from Maddie G Designs. Quadrille Fabrics and Wallpapers has a new line of Sunbrella (read my outside dilemma here) fabrics showcasing the designs of China Seas and Alan Campbell. Here is the real awesomeness: Most China Seas, Alan Campbell and Quadrille prints can be custom printed on Sunbrella ground! If you are not a designer, you may order your fabric through Maddie G Designs. I think I'd be happy with any of these...

Please Read from the Sunbrella folks:
"Quadrille has outstanding print designs. However, while we have not tested Quadrille’s prints, we have never found a print ink with UV durability anywhere close to that of Sunbrella fabric. For that reason, treatments to Sunbrella fabrics such as printing voids the Sunbrella warranty.
If you recommend these fabrics to your clients, we strongly suggest following care guidelines for prints, not Sunbrella, in order to maximize useful life. This would include storing or covering when not in use, and using print-friendly cleaning methods. Sunbrella fabrics may be safely cleaned with strong agents such as bleach or acetone that will damage print patterns.
We love Quadrille’s style and designs. We simply wanted to address any potential disappointment in the durability of prints vs Sunbrella.
