My favorite style of quilts is definitely modern. To create modern quilts, you need modern fabric.
I am also a fan of powerful women. An inspiring story about women pursuing their dreams is invigorating.
Combine modern fabrics and powerful women and you have the founders of Cotton+Steel.
Cotton+Steel is a brand new division of RJR Fabrics (one of our sponsors!). RJR took a chance on five modern, hip designers and won the jackpot when they created this new fabric division. Each woman comes from a unique background and has brought that as inspiration for their fabric lines.
Keepsake Quilting, a great online store, has the hook up for Cotton+Steel. In addition to the fabric, they have exclusive projects utilizing Cotton+Steel fabric.
Here's a rundown of my favorite fabrics and projects:
I think my choices reflect my current obsession with teal.
I urge you, quilters, to look at the story of Cotton+Steel. Even if modern fabric isn't your thing, the inspiring story of these women may bring a tear to your eye.
Happy Quilting & Happy Days,
