A year ago, I was looking forward to moving my home and shop from Melbourne to Torquay Beach. I must have had the beach in mind when I named the prints Flip Flops and Rockpools, Sea Spray and Sunday Picnic. The colors are beach-bright, 1960s mod – shades of green, gold, pink, blue and purple.
I hope you are looking forward to using my newest fabric line. –Jen Kingwell
Lawn fabrics look sheer but it will be more opaque (less transparent) after washing.
What is cotton Lawn? Since the Middle Ages, thin, soft, closely woven, plain-weave fabrics have been in high demand. Originally manufactured from linen, these smooth, lustrous fabrics are now made with combed and carded cottons. The most common fabrics of this kind are cambric, batiste and lawn.
Named after the French city of Laon, cotton lawn is manufactured with fine yarns to create a high-thread-count, lightweight fabric with a silky, smooth feel. The finish used on lawn fabrics can vary with some lawns having a crisp, crease-resistant finish, though the fabric is never actually stiff. Lawns are generally opaque and depending on the color and print, they can be a bit sheer.
Quilts backed with cotton lawns are almost always lighter in overall weight.
