In Betz's words -- "Stitch is inspired by all types of stitchers and the beautiful handiwork created by them. My Grandmother's knitting, my Dad's needlepoint, my Mom's sewing...all of the needlework that's ever been a part of my life influenced this group. Stitches and textures from crochet, embroidery and crewelwork and more are interpreted as bold and graphic motifs." The Stitch Organic collection is completely made up of patterns inspired by stitching, including chevrons and hexies, and is GOTS certified organic!

It's wonderful to have a designer as accomplished and thoughtful as Betz here on my blog!! It was such a pleasure to work with her Stitch Organic fabrics to create my new Quilted Stitch Tote Bag! To view more projects made with Stitch Organic fabrics, you can visit the Stitching with Stitch photo album on flickr. To stash some Stitch of your very own, visit my sponsor Fat Quarter Shop, as well as Sew Mama Sew, Fabric.com, Marmalade Fabrics, eQuilter, and The Calico Cottage Quilt Shop.
