Just Basics

Do you need dots and stripes? Of course you do! We all do! The backbone of any basic cotton collection is a classic dot and stripe in different sizes and a wide range of colours. These never go out of style and are great for so many projects:

  • quilts and crafts
  • retro decor projects
  • fun and flirty dresses, skirts and more

An oh-so-fun project just in time for back to school is this oh-so-fun backpack. Kids will love this little carry-all that can be customized in so many ways. Add extra pockets inside or out in a contrasting colour or make it special with appliques & trim. Simply add these extras to the initial pattern pieces before you begin sewing everything together!

Super versatile cotton blender prints are the foundation of any quilting project. Quilt designs use blenders for sashing, backing and binding. By definition, they’re tone-on-tone small scale prints that read as a solid and coordinate with or accentuate larger focal prints. These basic prints come in a wide colour range making them great for all types of projects beyond quilts; like pillowcases, little dresses, crafts and more.
