Colour Spectrum and Bear Essentials

If you have ever had difficulty finding the perfect colour for your project we have the solution. Just arrived at the shop is the complete collection of Bear Essentials from P & B Textiles, and expected this week the complete line of Colour Spectrum by P&B.

Bear Essentials includes 64 rich tone-on-tone colours. For those quilters who search out whole collections, we have packaged the whole line as fat eights (8 metres), perfect for applique enthusiasts. Supply of this gift-boxed collection is limited, although we will be carrying the whole line as one of our basics.

I cannot wait to work with the Colour Spectrum fabrics. These solids will work into traditional Amish Style quilts or more contemporary Gee's Bend quilts. This stained glass window from Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria is my inspiration for a new quilt using these two lines of fabric. The pattern is drafted. . . .
