Floral Patchwork Fabrics

We have reorganised our patchwork floral fabrics, so you can now find a much greater range of fabrics with floral designs. There are fabrics with flowers from big blooms to tiny little ditsy flowers. We have put all the floral fabrics from designers such as Philip Jacobs, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler and Heather Bailey all in one place.

Artist Nel Whatmore has some great new stylistic floral fabrics so be sure to check these out.

Quilters Dream Orient Bamboo Wadding

Quilters Dream Orient is a new wadding from Quilters Dream. It is a luxurious blend of Silk, Bamboo, Botanic Tencel® and Cotton

Quilters Dream Orient Wadding is a luxurious blend of velvety Bamboo, luscious silk, strong silky Tencel® and soft stable Cotton. Dream Orient's natural environmentally friendly fibers are carded, crosslapped and finely needlepunched to bring you the most desirable qualities of softness, strength, warmth and breathability. The elegant silky soft drape makes Dream Orient a batting beyond compare!
Machine wash and dry with cool water/cool dryer - shrinkage approximately 3%. You can stitch up to 8" apart.
Bamboo - is a velvety soft, absorbent fiber with unique antibacterial qualities. Bamboo is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Silk - the strongest natural fiber in existence has always stood for quality and elegance. Dream Orient contains high quality Tussah 'Peace' silk, which is stronger and more resilient than white silk..

Botanic Tencel® - is made from environmentally friendly eucalyptus wood pulp derived from sustainable tree farms. Tenciel® is exceptionally strong, resilient and resistant to wrinkles, yet so soft it is often referred to as imitation silk.

Cotton - is a natural fully renewable fiber that is soft, breathable and a traditional fiber used throughout generations. Dream Orient uses only the high grade cleaned upland USA cotton for durability and quality for the most discriminating quilters.
