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.
Colourful block patterns using blenders make for a fun and easy blanket project.
