Sunday Stash #125

Introducing a new fabric type to my rapidly growing fabric stash:

Loulouthi Velveteen by Anna Maria Horner

100% Cotton Velveteen!  Now, I'll confess right up that I've not worked with velveteen before so I can't tell you (yet) what it is like to work with.  What I can tell you though that it is low pile fibers feel velvety plush and luxuriously soft.  The colors are rich and saturated.

The weight of this velveteen collection feels perfect for home decor, bags and accessories, pillows/cushion, and of course I wouldn't hesitate piecing it into a quilt!  It is supple and super soft and even a little fancy.


Favorite prints: 
From left bottom left to top right:  Coreopsis in Marine, Clippings in Lichen, 
In the Clearing in Jade, Summer Totem in Emerald, 
Zap Zig in Aztec, Clippings in Amethyst.


Loulouti Velveteen available from:
Sew Modern

Enjoy Sunday!

  5. Velveteen! That just sounds so luxurious. A velveteen quilt must be the softest experience.

  6. My first thought from the photo was "that looks like it has texture and pile to it"... and it does! What beautiful fabrics for pillows, etc.

  9. Green eyed monster here! I love Anna Maria Horner. I've been eyeing up this collection but never considered the velveteen. I would love to know how it handles in quilting.

  10. Oooh! These look so wondeful! I used Summer Totem in Tart for my daugthers curtains - a little lightweight for curtains (I used just the regular 100% cotton) but the colours really pack a punch!

  11. I was thinking the velveteen would make a nice skirt. The colors would certainly perk up my winter wardrobe!
