Fabric

Liberty Tana Lawn

One of my very favourite fabrics.  I love almost every design in it.  The first thing I ever quilted was made from patchwork squares of this lovely, pretty, gorgeous fabric!

Mas D’Ousvan Chambray

The chambray fabrics are 100% cotton and are very tactile – they are most definitely strokable fabrics to have in your stash! I bought these last year and still can’t decide what to make with them!  They are similar to linen but with a softer feel. I’d really like some more and then I’d make myself a lap quilt!

The Craft Cotton Company – Vintage Florals 

The Craft Cotton Company’s fabrics are always good quality and noticeably thicker than other cottons. Lovely to look at, they are easy to sew with, specially for use in patchwork and quilting. I particularly enjoy using them for cathedral windows as they hold their shape without being too stiff for hand sewing.
