Scrap Quilt Challenge Sponsor Spotlight-Studio E Fabrics

 Fabrics N Quilts Scrap Quilt Challenge
The Scrap Quilt Challenge is a few weeks underway and we already have over 70 beautiful creations in the Flickr group!

Alternative Name

Fabrics N Quilts is humbled by the support of our sponsors for the Scrap Quilt Challenge and the quilters too!

Our next Designer Spotlight block tutorial is also less than a week away!  We're excited to send you over to Rebecca's blog @ Ruby Blue Quilting Studio on Saturday for her block tutorial!

Studio E Fabrics is one of our new Challenge sponsors and a new brand of fabric we have started stocking at Fabrics N Quilts.
There are very talented collection of designers over at Studio E including Jennifer Brinley, DtK Signature, & Pepper Cory.

Pepper Cory's "Peppered Cottons" are a real treat to create with.  They are "shot cottons" in that the lengthwise thread of the weave is one color and the cross thread is a different color.  It gives the fabric dimension without the printed marble.  These are dyed then woven fabrics, so they will have more fray than working with a printed cotton.  It's not exactly homespun, but that may give you a little insight on texture and fray.  Having worked with these myself, I can tell you that the effect in the quilt is amazing.  Here is the blog post Pepper wrote when her line first debuted.  Lots of cool stuff on how this fabric is made:
You'll see more and more colors of Peppered Cottons at Fabrics N Quilts in the coming months!

Studio E also has an always-available flannel line.  It's awesome to know that a favorite print is always available.  The Cuddle Me flannels are 2 ply and super soft.
Studio E has generously donated a fat quarter bundle of 12 scrumptious flannel prints as a prize in our Scrap Quilt Challenge!  In total, there are 37 bright colors in this line - sure to cheer any winter day that requires a flannel quilt!

Studio E is a relatively new fabric company, founded in 2008.  They have grown and developed quickly into one of the premier brands of quilting fabric and since 2010 is part of the parent company that also produces Blank Quilting, Henry Glass, AE Nathan and Fabric Editions fabrics.  
We are so excited to share their story with you.  Be sure to look for these great fabrics on your next trip to your LQS or Fabrics N Quilts!  Check out our coming soon section of the website for some awesome fall & winter Studio E fabric lines and save 5%!
