Adorn by Alison Glass

New in the shop this week is Adorn fabrics by Alison Glass! Alison is exploring new substrates with Adorn, including double gauze, tailor's cloth, and lawn, all of which can be used for both quilts and garments.

There are seven lawn prints in Adorn, four with a double border print and three with a scattered floral. Lawns make light, smooth quilts and garments with the perfect balance of softeness and structure. Like quilting cotton, it's a 100% cotton woven, making for simple washing and care of lawn quilts and apparel.

The line has two double gauze prints, both the same scattered floral in either charcoal gray or blush pink. Double gauze is soft and light, almost plush and airy from the two very light plys woven together. Double gauze makes garments that are amazingly soft and comfortable in all seasons (cool and absorbent in summer, warm in colder weather) and after snuggling under a double gauze quilt you may have difficultly returning to plain cotton. Double gauze also shows off quilting stitches like no other fabric.

 The last substrate is tailor's cloth, which is similar to a cotton canvas but lighter and thinner. It's perfect for garments and accessories that need a little structure, like fitted dresses, jackets, and purses, and would also make beautiful home goods like toss pillows and storage bins. "Adorn Symbolic Tailor Cloth" comes in two colorways -- warm and cool-- which is also great for those who like to choose fabric  that best coordinates with their closets and homes.
