Patchwork Palette Packs

Kaffe Fassett Patchwork Fabric Pack Kaffe Fassett Reds Patchwork Palette

Amy Butler Lotus Patchwork Palette
We launched our new Patchwork Palettes at the Festival of Quilts in August and they proved very successful. Each Palette features 20 fabrics cut to 10 inch squares so they are perfect for Layer Cake patterns. Since there are only 20 fabrics in each pack they are more versatile, as you can mix different Patchwork Palettes into the same quilt. Our Patchwork Palette range will be growing but we start off with packs from Kaffe Fassett, Philip Jacobs and Amy Butler.

There has been a number of new items added to the Cotton Patch site over the last month.
Firstly I have made a new area for Amy Butler fabrics, books and patterns. There are some new bag patterns, the Midwest Modern range and we also have the Nigella range of home decor weight fabrics. There are three books by Amy including the new title 'Little Stitches for Little Ones' that I mean to dip into for my new little one. See also Ellie and Liz's Amy sewathonAmy Butler fabrics and bags
