  • Hexagon Piecing Tutorial (jessyratfink on Instructables)

    June 12, 2017 by Britex Fabrics

    img_0737 It's all too easy to keep collecting the charming cotton prints on the Second Floor of our brick-and-mortar store (and online in our cotton section)...and piecing multiple hexagons together is an easy way to use as many of your favorites as you'd like. Depending on your needs--and your stamina!--you can create placemats, appliqués, patches, and clean-lined quilt tops of any size out of individual three-inch hexagons. Just refer to this seven step Instructables tutorial by jessyratfink!

  • Folk Art Circus Cotton

    January 28, 2011 by Britex Fabrics

    The circus has arrived at Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor cotton area! This cotton quilting-weight fabric is inspired by the folk art masterpiece, The Kirk Bros. Circus, a miniature carved circus made by Mr. Kirk between 1910 and 1954. I love the aerial bicyclist, and can almost taste the peanuts and hear the galloping horses. This fabric is 100% cotton, 44” wide and $14.99/yard. Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy this fabric, and you will be guided to the correct department.

  • Anthropomorphic Veggies and Critters!

    October 29, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    These super-duper cute cotton prints would make colorful kids shirts, smocks, baby bibs, or playroom curtains. They are also ideal for sillier adults with a hankering for snazzy and bright apparel. One print is filled with a crowd of smiling anthropomorphic squash, broccoli, onions and other veggies. The other depicts wacky camping critters, including wide-eyed owls, marshmallow toasting squirrels, purple bunnies, and their camping accouterments. This 100% cotton fabric is 44” wide, $14.99/yard, and can be found on Britex Fabric’s 2nd floor.

    Please email M. Du Jour at Britex Fabrics if you want to buy this fabric.
