Kaffe Collective Pre-cuts

We all like to work with pre-cuts for those great scrappy quilts. We are pleased to provide a variety of Kaffe Classic prints in different sizes of pre-cuts. There are a total of 5 different colorways. Each colorway provides 2 1/2″ strips sets, 5″ and 10″ square packs, along with a set of fat quarters. You can get it cut just about any way you like.

Let’s start with one of the most popular pre-cuts. The 2 1/2″ strip sets. Moda started it all by calling them Jelly Rolls. Now almost every company offers these strips with a slightly different name, of course. The ones from Kaffe are known as Designs Rolls. Each roll contains a total of 40 strips. There are two strips of each of the fabrics shown.

Another popular pre-cut is the set of 5″ Charm Squares. These are known as Charm Squares and the pack contains a total of forty 5″ squares. There are two of each square in each pack. The fabrics in each pack are shown below.

We also have the Kaffe Collective Pre-cuts in 10″ Charm squares. You will find 40 in each pack with 2 of the same. See the fabrics in each pack below.

If those pre-cuts are just too small for you, we have the fat quarter pack which contains 20 fat quarters. The fabrics are pictured for each pack.

Spring Time in Texas = Bluebonnets

We all look forward to seeing our beautiful bluebonnets and fields of mixed wildflowers during Spring in Texas. As quilters and Texans, we all probably “need” a bluebonnet quilt to bring out each Spring. Enjoy our current selection of bluebonnet prints.

The artwork of Kathleen McElwaine is such a nice addition to the prints. Bluebonnets is one of her specialties.

Digital Printed Linen

We have always loved to sew with linen, particularly printed linen. Over the years we have found very little printed linen available to the home sewing market. We had locked in a source out of Canada and were in great supply until guess what – covid. We are not sure when our salesman will be able to come and show us new fabrics so until then let us show you what we have.

Here we go again with the Gallery Tunic pattern. It’s such a nice pattern to use with our printed linen. It doesn’t have too many seam details to take away from the beautiful prints.

The pattern calls for 3 1/4 yards of 45″ wide because the sleeves won’t fit side by side, but our printed linen is 54″ so you will need a length for the front, a length for the back and a sleeve length + a little for shrinkage when you pre-wash. You know your finished length, but my educated guess would be 2 1/4 yards.

If you haven’t gotten hooked on these magazines, this might be the time to enjoy actually reading them cover to cover.
