Measurements: There’s an App for That
Robert Kaufman Fabrics and Quilter’s Paradise have joined forces to bring you a collection of eight essential quilting calculators. With these calculators you’ll be able to quickly convert between yards and inches, meters and centimeters; learn how much fabric you need for backing, batting and borders; and determine how many rectangular pieces can be cut from a larger piece. There are even calculators for square-in-a-square, set-in and corner triangles.
Quiltmaker and designer Patrick Lose makes a splash with Dazzle, his latest fabric collection of twinkling stripes, bubbles and rings playing in a brilliant palette of 30 must-have tonal shades.
Behind the Scenes of Batik Making
Have you ever wondered how batik fabrics are made? Check out the Robert Kaufman Fabrics blog, Swatch and Stitch. Here you will get a full overview of the batik-making process, given by Kaufman’s powerhouse design duo Michael and Debra Lunn. Michael and Debra discuss their companies ethical business strategy and production process, in respect to the positive effects the business has on the local community of Surakarta, Indonesia.
