Down in Woods 1504 Black Lupine Texture

Photographs are a useful guide in purchasing your fabric.  All of our photographs are as provided by the manufacturer.  The Quilters Studio will not be held responsible for any issue in your selection based on the photograph provided.

We tear our fabric, thereby ensuring that you receive a selvedge to selvedge cut of what you ordered.  If you would prefer to have us cut your selections, you will need to direct us to do so.  We do recommend that you launder your fabric before cutting it for your project.  Laundering your fabric is more to eliminate the chemicals and inert dyes that are inherent to any fabric manufactured, thereby easing your use of the product.

This is Kate Findlay’s first collection with Blank Quilting. Inspired by landscapes and walks in the woods. The designs in this collection are made up of hand dyed fabrics in the designs. The group features a woodland animal panel (24”), a continuous yardage block design in rich earth tones, a wildlife collage that is scenic, a tossed critter and owl design, a foliage print in beautiful greens, a lupine texture in rich purples, and a tossed elk design. All these prints are created in shades of subtle sandstone, forest green, tan and black accents.

Kate Findlay

Kate is an artist and teacher. She works predominantly in textiles, producing a wide range of works, from animals and landscapes to unusual night sky pieces embedded with fiber optic lighting. Kate received a textile degree and worked in the industry before teaching art and design technology in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. Kate left teaching in July 2018 to become a self-employed artist.   Now, she spends her time creating new works, teaching workshops, giving talks and fulfilling commissions.

Kate's work is inspired by the wildlife and landscapes near to where she lives. She enjoys sketching and taking photographs. She hand-dyes much of the fabric used in her raw edge appliqué pictures which are finished with hand and machine stitching. Making art is a complete passion and probably the most important thing in her life right now!
