Hello everyone at Create Kids Couture! It's Kimberly from Fat Quarter Shop! Are you ready to hear a bit about fabric? As the fabric consultant on Create Kids Couture, I will be stopping each month by to talk to you about what is happening in the world of fabric! We are surrounded by fabric here at Fat Quarter Shop and want to share some of the prettiness with you!
To make sure we cover our bases, we are starting with the basics. Basics, especially solids, are necessities in so many projects to tie cute and bold prints together! Solids sell really quickly around here because of their many uses. You can find them featured in many quilts and they have started to steal the show in the modern quilting community. Solids are also frequently used in apparel. All of you seamstresses should have a big stash of solids to use in your sewing projects.
Our two best selling groups of basics are Bella Solids by Moda Fabrics and Kona Solids by Robert Kaufman Fabrics. These two groups feature high quality, 100% cotton fabric in almost every color you can imagine. Feel free to stock up on these popular colors, or add some color from our large range of solids.
