Doe Wholecloth Quilt and Doe Wide.

Also new on the fabric front, is Doe Wide which is a new 108″-wide design. I wanted more wide fabric options to use for backs that were non-gendered or age specific, so I took the bias check from Doe and have it in four colors, carrot, ash, pacific, and black.

 

While it’s great for backs, I’m also piecing with it too. Here’s a small version of Outhouse that I made up this week. Doe Wide is the background.

Because, it’s so versatile (and really soft), I decided that this particular design would also be perfect as a whole cloth project–the grid gives you a bit of structure for any number of designs. You can use it as a canvas for big stitch, free motion, appliqué or anything else you can think up.

 

Enter, Doe Wholecloth.

This one I made by tying off with a lots of different colors of perle cotton thread. The texture and color that the ties create is so much fun.

I also gave my friend Ellen a bit to work with. She used the printed grid as a guide for lots of big stitch quilting with more beautiful colors of bright threads.

I created a pattern for this that will be up on the Robert Kaufman website soon here. The idea is simple, but there is so much you can do with it.
