Cotton + Steel : Fresh Lemons Quilts

You’ve probably seen a lot of Cotton + Steel fabric popping up on blogs and Instagram. After being announced last Fall at Quilt Market and then unveiled last Spring at Quilt Market, it’s now arriving in shops!

I made an attempt to limit what I bought…really, this isn’t all of what’s for sale! I bought half yards of all the Basics – which are completely awesome. Great colors, love that some have metallics worked into them too.

Then I picked some of my favorites out of the designers’ different collections. The fabric lines all coordinate with each other, making it really easy to mix and match a few prints from each.

    I can hardly wait to see what you create from this line, and other quilters as well – because this line just does nothing for me – I need some inspiration from those more creative than I am.

    I saw this at Market and can honestly say I didnt think it lived up to all the hype. I hope you dont think this is negative or disparaging, just a difference of opinion. Very well marketed though!

    Connecting Threads will carry C&S?! Will this be the first time they offer fabric not designed in-house?

      Hi Douglas – I’m not sure if it’s the first time, but when I emailed and asked, they told me they would be carrying it as of 8/5.

This blog is a positive, uplifting space. Negative and disparaging comments will be deleted.
