Karen Combs' Texture Stripe for Blank Quilting

Order Online

Print out Order Form


The depth you have admired in many quilts of illusion is achieved by using gradations of fabrics.  These gradations are shaded from light to dark.  In addition, the textures have to correct for the illusion to show.  These fabrics are now available in Karen Combs' Texture Stripe fabrics. This fabric are a wonderful alternative to expensive hand dyed fabric.  Each fabric gradates from light to dark across the bolt, each stripe is 11"

It is useful in piecing as well as appliqué.  It will give a realistic look to appliqué patterns and is useful in creating illusions when piecing quilts.  It solves the problem of "finding" a light, medium and dark fabric within a color family.  It's all there within one fabric!

Please support your local quilt shop when you buy this fabric.  If you can't find it locally, check below to find online stores that carry it.  You may also purchase it from my online catalog, click " here" for my online order form.  This fabric is available from my online catalog in 1 yard cuts.
