Add a Bit of Greenery!

Instead of traditional green tonals, why not add in a few green leaves instead? Our Fantasy Garden ColorStack mixes leaves, more leaves and coordinating tones of green, white, gray and black!

Chenille-It - A New Way to Chenille!

Chenille-It Blooming Bias is the perfect product for your next quilt!  Use it for raw-edge appliqu├ęs, in between seams, or anywhere you want that added texture and drama on your piece! 
 
Just sew strips down the middle and wash!  
The chenille fluffs up. Amazing! 
 
 It's Really This Easy! 

The Butterfly Garden Quilt is our most popular pattern!
   

You Can Chenille Anything!   
   
Simple Sew & Wash to create a chenille embellishment or binding. Add rows of chenille or just an accent around jackets, vests, collars, tote bags and more. This is a great embellishment for any sewing or quilting project.
 
How About This? Open Weave Garments!   
   
The magic of the Lattice jacket (or vests or scarves!)  is that it is made on water soluble stabilizer and 5/8 inch wide Chenille-It Blooming Bias.
Sew on Chenille-It strips, then wash the stabilizer out!  
 
The finished jacket has the look and feel of a knitted or crocheted jacket but can be made in a day!  The jacket requires 4-5 rolls of 5/8 inch wide Chenille-It depending on the size and length you are making.
Use your favorite jacket or vest pattern!  
 
 
 
More Ideas!   
 
Here's a picture of the Chenille-It Booth at Quilt Market.
Take any pattern and Chenille-It!
Outline large letters or blocks or applique designs. Stitch in the Ditch for a raggy look. Stitch on the edges instead of binding!
