The newest fabric collection from Heather Ross is here, and this time she’s decided to bring us a group of lawns! The collection is called Sleeping Porch and it features her signature artwork, but this time the designs are not as child-like as her collections usually are. If you’ve always loved her artwork but wished for prints that would work better for adult projects, this collection is for you.
And because these fabrics are all 100% cotton lawn, you’ll also get the benefit of the super-soft hand and texture. These lawns lend themselves to be made into quilts as well as garments and accessories like infinity scarves.
To celebrate their arrival, these lawns are 15% off until
Tuesday, January 31st Tuesday, February 7th. No coupon code necessary!
The Snails print comes in two colors, Cream…
And Indigo. We love the intense shades of colors in the snails’ shells and bodies, and the small scale of the print means that you can get away with wearing these without the print calling too much attention.
To get an even better idea of the scale, check out this quilt:
This picture gives a great visual for how a lawn quilt comes together differently than one made with quilting cottons. Lawn quilts have more drape and feel cooler to the touch, while also feeling “smoother” on their surface. And since the feel is softer, lawn quilts allow for dense quilting, if that’s something you’ve been wanting to try.
Moths in Twilight has a larger scale paired with a more subtle print and a dreamy purple/grey background color. We think this one would be particularly wonderful for a scarf to be paired with a blazer.
Last but not least we have Fortune Tellers in Light Pink, which is the most whimsical print in the bunch. We weren’t sure what those shapes were supposed to be when we first saw this print — were they flowers? And then the sales rep reminded us of what “fortune tellers” are, and we were thoroughly charmed. We think a little girl’s dress made with this fabric would be perfection… and Ivete wants to make a tank top for herself out of it, too!
What will you make with Sleeping Porch Lawns?
