Spots and dots: Essentials at Saints and Pinners

Spots and dots are a stash essential, they have a timeless quality and can really perk up a project.  Fran and Jo at Saint and Pinners have a great selection of spotty, dotty fabrics suitable for crafting and clothing.  Starting with a beautiful organic cotton from Cloud 9,  Speckle Grass, this colour has that lovely golden mustard tone to it which works so well with grey and neutrals.
Another organic cotton, this time in pink and aimed at dress making, a light cotton and bamboo blend, shirting weight so very much aimed at tops.
A spotty fabric with a little extra floral doodling, Flower and Dot from the ever popular Flea Market Fancy range.
A large scale print which uses dots as its starting point and expands to make the Co-ordinates print in Midnight from Anna Maria Honer's Field Study collection.
Kaffe's dots are a pleasure to use, the colour combinations are playful and the dots are medium and closely spaced, great as a blenders or along side solids.  This is a low volume pastel example called Water dots.
And this is a much more intense, higher contrast colour combination or orange and turquoise
Can't choose?  There is a Kaffe stack which is very reasonably priced with a 10% discount off the individual prices.
I am off to play with freezer paper (yep they sell that too, by the roll) and little bits of fabric x
