Celebrate the beauty and elegance of toile with these brand new designs!

Blooming garden scenes delight on pillows, wall hangings, and blankets, while birds perched on blossoming branches are just the ticket for tea towels, aprons, and quilts. Because toile features light stitches and open areas that allow the fabric to show through, they're best stitched on smooth neutral fabrics. Try quilter's cotton, linen, denim, canvas, and tea towels for the best results.
