Backings that will Blow your Mind

This was my absolute favorite pick at Market! The folks at Hoffman are so creative but these new digitally printed backings are over the top!

           

If these allover 104″ wide prints weren’t enough, check these out! With digital printing they don’t have the constraints of a repeat so anything is possible!

 

And then there is this 108″ version which I love! I am going to be grandma of the year when I do the girls rooms in this. The curtains are a show stopper!

Most of these fabrics are available in 44″ wide as well so it is easy to coordinate the entire room. Remember – with backings, you can’t just order one bolt and satisfy your customers!  Why not do an email blast and take pre-orders?

And when they arrive, display them on a curtain rod so customers can see the entire panel. They literally take your breath away!

The Perfect Solids for Applique

Me and You by Hoffman offers an incredible line of solids that have the feel and characteristics of batiks – which means they don’t fray and ravel, the perfect choice for raw edge applique.  And, JoAnn Hoffman’s new designs due in this month showcase them perfectly!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The design detail in these two projects truly transforms them into a work of art.  Look how the hands form a secondary star pattern in Sisters of the Cloth.  The muted quilts in the background of the Yoder Sisters is a subtle touch that adds that awe factor that we all love!  Her attention to detail is what brings these solids alive!  To see the complete collection, visit our website:  Me and You Solids

This is the same gal that brought us the Dragonfly and Butterfly patterns that made batiks sing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be sure to take the time to study her fabric choices.  Her designs look like Tiffany glass!
