Burlap & Lace

Arabella

Caryl's Feather

Little Harajuku

Any day spent sewing, is a good day! 

Burlap and Lace, by Dover Hill.  First, create an incredible texture that looks just like burlap, but has the soft hand of cotton. Then add a touch of lace, and color the motifs in soft French blue or handsome charcoal grey/black. It’s an irresistible combination of textures, and this collection, with its beautiful squares and florals, is simply stunning.

Arabella is a very traditional and elegant collection. A soft pastel palette and intricate paisley designs mix, with adorable floral patterns. Greens, blues, pinks, and yellows make this a truly versatile collection with many possibilities for home decor and personal crafts.

Caryl's Feather, Caryl is a renowned quilt artist known for her extraordinary hand-dyes. Her latest collection for Benartex, Caryl’s Feather, has a true hand-painted look in rich, saturated colors. The brush swirls over the page and the resulting texture provide unlimited design possibilities, for both art quilts and wearable art.

Little Harjuku, by Greta Lynn, takes inspiration from colorful Asian dolls, and mixes it up with giant flowers, leaves, and a uber-cool sushi print (ready for take-out). This collection has fabrics that will provide unlimited design possibilities. In two luscious colorways - trendy black-red-gray or multicolor brights. There’s something here for everyone!
