Lamb and Cottontail Fabric Quilt

Lamb meets Cottontail from the Cuddly Quilt!

We love seeing how everyone re-invents our fabrics in combinations all their own! Here's a sweet medly of Lamb and Cottontail in a quilt from The Cuddly Quilt. Follow us on Instagram and tag your photos with #hawthornethreads - we love seeing what everyone makes with our In House fabrics!


Redwood from Hawthorne Threads

Redwood Fabric Poster 2800

John Muir writes that "between every two pines is a doorway to a new world," and we'd like to invite you on a majestic walk in the woods. Our next In House designed and printed fabric collection follows a mama bear and her cubs in the Pacific Northwest, where towering Redwood trees stand as tranquil sentries to another time. Their humbling heights instill a sense of awe and wonder no superlative can capture. The feeling is not unlike the one a new parent feels, making this collection a particularly wonderful choice for nurseries, children's bedrooms and play areas. With its natural hand and nurturing spirit these designs lend themselves beautifully to lovingly made bedding, quilts, apparel and accessories that both mamas and her cubs will adore. The collection features two palettes, Berry and Lake, each with Faux Patchwork prints, Project Panels and Quilt Panels. Like all our house collections, Redwood is available in Poplin, Quilting Cotton (Organic too!) and a Linen/Cotton Canvas. Let your sewing projects reach new heights with Redwood!

Redwood Fabric Pillows and Quilts

We've loved sewing a variety of projects with Redwood. The Faux Patchwork prints make for quick quilts, and the duo of project panels are great for throw pillows, mini quilts and blankets, or as the centerpiece of a quilt. My kids are presently enjoying their very first time at sleep away camp, and we got some projects done just in time. The Linen Cotton Canvas looks beautiful on a London Backpack, and the Walk in the Woods pajamas will have your little one ready to hibernate! See here for the easy Nightgown Tutorial.

Redwood Fabric Bedding Pillows

Redwood is a beautiful choice for bedding, and this pillow set is away at camp as I write! See here for the Pillowcase Tutorial and Reading Pillow Tutorial. And finally, as we were envisioning sweet nurseries while designing this collection, it was wonderful to see this crib set come together. The other side of the quilt features the Faux Patchwork Forest Slumbers in Lake, and this side shows the 44" x 48" Crib Quilt Panel in Aspen (also available in a larger 56" x 72" size, for both Aspen and Shell colorways.) We have a number of projects on our sewing table, so more inspiration to come!
