A Little Birdie Told Me... all about Quilter's Linen

Quilter's Linen is one of my favorite basics. Quilter's Linen isn't actually Linen at all!! It's printed linen texture on classic quilting cotton. This enables you to get the effect of Linen without having a to worry about any of the challenges of mixing linen with quilting cotton. Quilter's Linen is also a great alternative to using a solid for those times that you want an area to "read" solid but have a bit of life too!

27 of the 28 available colors
Quilter's Linen comes in 28 colors and is a fantastic basic that should be in everyone's stash.
 
Here are a few of the natural colors of Quilter's Linen.  The Quilter's Linen strips are on top of Essex which is a 55% linen, 45% cotton blend.
 
The "texture" looks fantastic!  
 
I used Quilter's Linen for the background, flange & border of my banner quilt.
 
My Raspberry Dessert quilt is made 100% with Quilter's Linen.
 
I used Chocolate Quilter's Linen for the background of Opposites Attract & Leaf Quilter's Linen for the binding.
 
For this pillow I mixed Quilter's Linen with Kona Crush.
 
The possibilities are endless! I hope you will give Quilter's Linen a try!
