Wonderland by Rifle Paper Co.

We could not be more delighted by the arrival of Wonderland by Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton and Steel! A few years ago, Anna Rifle Bond was asked by Puffin Books to illustrate the 150th anniversary edition of the classic novel Alice in Wonderland.

Wonderland by Cotton and Steel

The Wonderland collection brings her nearly 80 hand paintings to Cotton and Steel fabrics, including quilting cottons, lawns, cotton/linen canvases and rayons.

The follow up to last year’s Bluebird line, SS Bluebird is a collaborative collection that puts a nautical spin and fun red accents into the mix of blue-hued designs.

Peppered Cottons 108″ shot cottons

Peppered Cottons are a timeless classic and a favourite for quilters and now they are available in 108″ wide widths! These are yarn-dyed shot cottons, meaning the weft and warp are two different colours, giving the fabric a beautiful depth.

These shot cottons are a little heavier weight that others on the market. They are perfect for quilting and will fit up to a queen size quilt back. They also work well in dressmaking, in any pattern where you’d use a chambray or medium weight cotton. When planning your garments, keep in mind you can usually about half the fabric requirement for your pattern – often as little as 75cm! Find our new Peppered Cottons 108″ in the shop here.
