Our newest quilting cotton blender design is a subtle tone-on-tone print called Shadowplay. Although blenders are traditionally used for quilts, this new group will work in any project that needs a coordinate print as an alternative to a solid shade. And, with 24 colours to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the right match!
Brighten up your wardrobe with this season’s hottest colour, YELLOW. Any shade of yellow will do! Soft Butter, Lemon, Sunflower, Marigold, Maize and Soft Straw. Wear yellow head to toe or soften the look with white or ivory. Neutralize it with soft grey or contrast it with any shade of blue including classic navy.
White and soft creamy whites take centre stage this season with focus on TEXTURE. So many different textures, all in white: Lace, crochet, embroidered eyelet, mesh, laser cut cotton, gauze, cotton with floral appliques, jacquards, new linen slub knits, and ottoman knits.
Last year cobalt blue was the colour. It’s still there but the trend is moving to softer blues like the new Cornflower, China blue and Sky blue. Actually, any shade of blue will do including chambray and denim. Softer blues are showing in all print groups. Geometrics florals, stripes and abstracts.Don’t forget about all important Classic Navy this season. It goes with any colour.
Start the summer off with primary colours – RED, BLUE and YELLOW. Add a bright PRIMARY GREEN and you have the beginning of a beautiful summer. The primary colours work with NAVY in gorgeous stripes, dots or simple spaced floral motifs. Let’s move on to the hot shades on the colour wheel using every shade of orange and coral, gorgeous pinks from bubblegum to deep fuschia and warm citrus yellows. On the cool side of the colour wheel we see brilliant blues, purple, aquas and tropical greens.
IT’S BACK TO THE 70’S. Think suede skirts, funky patchwork prints, crochet vests, high waisted wide-legged culottes, calf length dresses, colour blocking, jumpsuits, platform shoes, and fringed jackets.
Transition into Spring with soft (sometimes dusty) pastels. Soft pink, peach, mint, sky blue, butter yellow, lavender, lilac and aqua. Mix with deeper sherbet pastels for a brighter look or combine with neutrals like sand, dove grey, toasted almond and cinnamon for a more sophisticated look. As the season progresses pastels can work with brights or deep tropical shades for interesting contrast.
Lightweight, soft and fuzzy flannelette just keeps on coming! New designs including basic plaids, novelties for boys and girls, holiday motifs and so much more are on their way.
With so many uses beyond ever-popular PJs, you’re sure to find just the right print for your cozy project.
