It’s been a busy few weeks at The Cotton Patch, with loads of new collections arriving for the change of season. But do not fear, it’s not all just Christmas from here on out; we have plenty of ranges inspired by our furry friends and padfooted pals - enough to write a whole newsletter about them!
We’re kicking it off with some winter themed prints but make sure you keep scrolling to see some wild wonders and tail wagging pals. Before we do so we thought this would be a great time to introduce you to our resident smile maker and all-round good boy, Oscar!
Woodland creatures have been hugely popular in the design world for several years now. The combination of our favourite creatures - owls, hedgehogs, bears, deer, foxes, with some winter florals and woodland scenery on soft pastel tones makes for some gorgeous, modern winter collections. Many of the colours and designs are not overtly Christmas making them suitable for all year round cool quilts.
Our Skogen Fat Quarter bundle includes all 9 fabrics in the collection plus instructions to make a small Accent quilt if you wish, shown below left. We also have another Fat Quarter Accent bundle, also from Dashwood, featuring woodland creatures in soft, muted tones. Dusk to Dawn is currently on offer at just £24.95 while stocks last.
Darling Meadow by Tanya Whelan offers a fresh, spring take on woodland creatures (below left). Like the other packs, instructions are included for making an Accent quilt from the nine fabric bundle. And the same is true of Meadowlark, below right, by Dena Designs, an eight Fat Quarter bundle.
•Make your own fusible bias tape
•Double sided temporary stick adhesive.
•Bond permanently when ironed.
Steam-A-Seam 2 has the pressure sensitive adhesive on both sides which allows for a temporary hold to both the appliqué material and the background material. You can hold your project vertically and the appliqué pieces stay in place and are still repositionable until fused with an iron.
They may be fearsome hunters in real life, but nothing is cuter than a polar bear print on fabric. Arctic themed prints are perfect for gifts that feel Christmassy but can stay out and be loved all year round.
A quilt is for life, so if you’re gifting someone special with a beautiful me-made project check out our favourite prints featuring our four legged friends and farm animals: we’ve got some collections they’re going to love!
Wide open plains, lions sitting under a shade tree trying to keep cool, elephants at a watering hole, zebras grazing, and giraffes plucking leaves from the highest branch - just arrived is this new collection by Stacey Iest Hsu. Stacey’s style and colour choice fits the theme perfectly. We have a selection of pre-cuts plus eight fabric available by the metre if you need to add sashing and/or borders to your projects. Our eight fat quarter pack includes instructions to make this lovely small quilt that is sure to remain a treasured item for any animal lover.
Last, but definitely not least for breathtaking detail are these Call of the Wild panels. These digitally printed panels from Hoffman show stunning images of wolves, bears and wild horses and the landscapes they live in. Fabulous!
