Anna Maria Horner‘s new Loulouthi Needleworks line of fabrics demands to be stitched. They are 58″ quilting-quality cottons printed with little X patterns and motifs that can easily stand on their own. But you know you want to stitch them. Anna Maria’s blog post says,
I wanted to be sure that the cloth stood on its own as a lovely print design for all kinds of patchwork and sewing, but also serve as a welcome invitation to thread a needle, find a hoop, and sit down to stitch up precious little artworks- for a baby collar, a yoke of a blouse or dress, a hem line, a framed artwork or a block in your next quilt. Or maybe an invitation to take on a lifeswork of a very expansive piece- a full coverlet entirely stitched, a table cloth, a bed skirt….combined with other printed fabrics, and so on.
You get it.
She says the new line will ship to stores in a few weeks. In the meantime, enjoy many more lovely photos at her post.
