Cotton + Steel Collections and Pre-Orders!

Every season, we are always so excited to see what’s new from Cotton + Steel. We got up close and personal with their newest collection at Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis and cannot wait to show you. 

Their booths are adorned with vintage memorabilia and accouterments. As usual, their individual collections are crafted to blend harmoniously, so you can’t go wrong with mixing these ranges. 

Now let’s take a closer look at their collections. Melody Miller’s Picnic collection was inspired by vintage picnic icons and prints that will spark your imagination. 

Kim Kight’s Lucky Strike collection tells a fanciful story of the 1970s Ladies’ bowling league. Her prints range from score cards to small florals, and lucky charms as well.
Paper Bandana is an ode to the Japanese paper cutting craft, Kirigami. Alexia Abegg’s hand made prints give the collection an earthy look. 
Honeymoon was inspired by Sarah Watts’ honeymoon trip to Costa Rica with her husband. Her whimsical prints of sloths, horses, and birds takes you on a journey to this tropical destination. 
Lastly, Rashida Coleman-Hale’s collection is so breezy! She translated wind in all of its beautiful form with her Zephyr collection. 
If you cannot wait to get your hands on these amazing collections, don’t fret! We have them for pre-order at our shop so you will receive your favorites before anyone else, plus save with up to 11% when you pre-order!

Let us know which collection is your favorite in the comment section and happy quilting everyone! 


  1. I love the Zephyr collection. Thank you for showing all of the collections.Thank you for the giveaway.

  2. I am in LOVE with Picnic!!! The shine on the apples is so cute, and the thermoses remind me of my childhood. The little 4-dot designs are darling. I can't wait to get my hands on this collection!

  3. LOVE THEM ALL!!! … WANT THEM ALL!!! to HAVE to choose I will take Lucky Strike by the fabulous KK 🙂 … XOXO

  4. Love then all, but if I had to choose I'd say Lucky Strike. It is so great that these coordinate with past collections!

  5. This time the collections really seem to blend well. Less variety in color and style maybe? I love them all. I really do. I cannot choose. I will probably have to have most of this.

  6. So many luscious fabrics!!! Hard to pick a favorite – but Color Daze really caught my eye as one that I would love to have in my hands!!

  7. Sarah Watts' Honeymoon is an easy favorite for me. My wife and I honeymooned in Costa Rica over 20 years ago.

  8. My vote is for Zephyr. Love the little girl figure with the pinwheel. I can see some of that in my future! Hope you're having fun!

  9. Love, the Windemere Collection by Brenda Riddle. I am a great fan of her fabrics and patterns. Thanks for showing all the different collections. It is great to see such a wide variety of wonderful fabrics and their talented creators.Thanks!!!

  10. I am looking forward to Color Daze by Laundry Basket Quilts.
    Second choice is the new Basic Grey collection. Both of these collections have me dreaming of quilt patterns to use with them.

  11. I really love the Lucky Strike, perfect for a dedication quilt for my Mom, she and Dad bowled in leagues when I was growing up and this would be great as a lap quilt for my memory time with her memories. Thanks for sharing all the new collections!

  12. I really like Lucky Strike, followed by Picnic…but of course they are all great 🙂 Thanks for the close up!
