A new look for twine

Raise your hand if you have a ball of twine in a kitchen drawer. Most of us do, and most of us don't give it a second thought. While useful, twine is fairly boring. 
Until today. Dover Hill Studio's new Divine Twine collection turns this handy rope product into a thing of beauty. Twine outlines flowers, medallions, paisleys, swirls, and more in this rich, masculine-colored collection. Who knew twine could be so attractive?! 

Here's a closer look at the medallion print--these medallions can be fussy-cut into 6-1/2" squares--perfect for adding intricate detail to a quilt block. 

Divine Twine has two free quilt patterns. The first pairs the prints with coordinating Burlap colors to create a quilt made of contrasting shades.

The second uses fussy-cut medallion blocks alternating with a secondary pieced block with a nautical feel.

  1. Beautiful fabrics . . . this is my first visit, but I'm sure not my last. I would love making a quilt with these, they are so very BoHo, Love them! This is the time of year when my sewing machine actually get a rest. Spring and outdoor projects keep me pretty busy until everything gets a spring face lift and the garden is planted. This year I am putting in drip lines on some of the garden, so, more time to sew and less time moving sprinklers :)
    Have a lovely weekend I am delighted to have found your blog.
    Your newest follower and blogging sister.

    Of course, I'm looking forward to your March Madness quilt bracket. Quite fun last year.
