After years of languishing at the back of fabric shops everywhere, solid dye fabrics have made a big comeback in recent times, strongly influenced by the modern quilt movement. Once the poor relation of prints, plains are now standing their ground in bold, graphic quilt designs. Available in a greater range of tints, tones and shades than ever before, we see solids paired with white, grey or black in simple, asymmetric layouts that rely on contrast and colour rather than intricate piecing. For these quilts to stand up to washing and use, you want to be sure the colours will remain strong, so always use the best quality plain dye fabrics from manufacturers you trust.
As with our Basics collections, these fabrics are repeatable, but colours do change from time to time and dye lots can’t be guaranteed, so as always it’s best to order all the fabric you will need for your project in one go.
