Fat Quarter Tuesday – Organic Goodness

Nancy Mims new 100% Organic Cotton collection for Robert Kaufman, Pick a Bunch, arrived in tandem with 6 new additions to the Pure Organic Solids line. The colors are saturated and pure. Carrie already has a quilt underway and the scale of the prints are working beautifully.

Cloud9 Organic Fabrics launched the first collection of a new Designer Series featuring South African surface and product designer, Heather Moore. Heather works under the brand name Skinny laMinx. Cut Out & Keep is a spectacular collection of 8 prints based on her paper-cut designs. The scale works wonderfully for clothing, quilting and accessory projects.

This is also printed on what Cloud9 is calling their ‘price sensitive’ organic cotton. I’d like to share the following description from the Cloud9 Fabrics website:

Premium Collection base cloth is a high end 200 theadcount fabric. It is silky smooth and luxurious to the touch. It is crisp to the touch, yet drapes beautifully. We generally reserve this fabrication for nursery based collections. It often has a bright white character, acheieved through non-chlorine bleach whiteners and without the use of optical brightners. Typically this is produced in India, unless otherwise noted.

Price Sensitive Collection base cloth is a true quilter’s cotton with an equal amount of yarns in the warp and weft for even shrinkage. It has a clean finish and supple hand/feel. The typical cast on this fabrication is a creamy white through the use of non-chlorine bleach whiteners. We use this fabrication for our Desginer Series and other non-nursery ranges. Typically we produce this in Pakistan, unless otherwise noted.

I find the quality to be equal, just a different hand. I’m excited they’re offering such an affordable 100% Organic option.
