I’m really excited about our new 100% cotton lawn fabric, Matsuri; I think it makes a great addition to our classic quilting cotton. When developing these fabrics, I was very mindful about the end projects that would be made, and did my best to create designs that would be beautiful in all applications of this fabric type.
Matsuri is a Japanese-inspired group that is delicate and has a few watercolored prints that work so well in the lighter-weight lawn fabrics. Lawn has a beautiful airy and whispy quality to it. It has a fine texture and a slightly silky sheen. I’ve seen lawn and voile quilts and have always loved how they look — they just add a new and different element to a quilt.
When I was given the chance to sew a test quilt for our catalog, I jumped at the opportunity. I really love the collection and the fabrics, and I loved the quilt’s design. I’m also very excited to be doing a few projects that I will be blogging about later in which I will be sewing up other items like blouses. It has such a beautiful drape for clothing and accessories. While we all love our traditional quilting cottons, it is so fun to have other fabric options to choose from! I’m one for newness and variety, so I’m very pleased to have it and to work with it.
I found this blog post by Anna Maria Horner on Voile and I can completely relate with her. I love the part where she says “I am not out to convert anyone, but to offer beautiful options that make me happy”, because I feel the exact same way!
We are so excited about this new addition that we are giving away two fat quarter samplers of it! To enter, just leave us a comment telling us whether you have used cotton lawn before, and what you would use it for if you won.
