Cotton Blender Fabrics
We spend a lot of time and care in creating our quilts, and want to make sure that the patterns and colours of the quilting fabric are in harmony to create the perfect patchwork quilt. A great way to achieve this is through blender fabrics for quilting.
Blenders - sometimes called mixer fabrics - are tone-on-tone printed fabric. They can also be a solid colour with a washed appearance or light repetitive designs. Like solids, these fabrics blend the different components of different fabrics together, giving your quilt a balanced design.
Blenders work to highlight the colours in patterned fabrics with multiple colours - much like solid / plain fabrics do. Many quilters, myself included, often use only blender fabrics in their patchwork pieces, as these fabrics can hold their own visually and really create a vibrant effect to showcase your patchwork designs.

Studio Cuts - How We Cut Your Fabric
We do not cut our patchwork fabric by the yard - quite simply because cutting fabric by the metre results in more fabric! Our studio cut fat quarter bundles measure at 22” x 20” - that is an extra 2 inches of fabric compared to the standard 22” x 18” fat quarter! How does this benefit you? When you sub-cut your own combination of 10” x 10” squares, 5” x 5” charms or 2.5” fabric jelly rolls strips, you can use near the whole fat quarter with less fabric scraps.
