We love to sew, and whether we sew for ourselves or for others, sewing is fundamentally an act of love. For "Yours Truly," her sixth collection for Cotton + Steel Fabrics, Kimberly Kight wanted people to be able to literally sew love into their creations. The selvedge includes an old rhyme "Loved you yesterday, loved you still; always have, always will," which can be incorporated into quilt backs, garment tags, or anywhere you want to include a little love note. In creating the collection, Kim started with feedsacks and dress prints from her vintage fabric collection that featured heart motifs. She brought together the group with "Tanuki," featuring raccoons in awe over their first encounter with flowers; a bold strawberry print; quirky little bows, and the abstract, dizzy "Head Over Heels." "Heartburst" adds a bit of zing with neon pink on unbleached cotton and gold on a navy ground. The 18 SKUs form a compact and versatile group of quilting cottons that coordinate wonderfully with C+S collections past and present.
Note: The pattern for the Trip Around The World made from Yours Truly is available for FREE from https://www.cottonandsteelfabrics.com/patterns/.
The fabric is 100% cotton, made in Japan for Cotton + Steel Fabrics, a division of RJR Fabrics.
This listing is for a fat eighths bundle. I have cut some bundles as 11"x18", which is the fat half of a fat quarter (many say this gives more cutting options!) The 9"x22" size is the skinny half of a fat quarter. It is the size most shops cut and that most patterns assume, if they call for fat eighths. :)
