There’s nothing like the promise of spring, with flowers starting to bloom, sunshiny days and more daylight hours to inspire us to start sewing and quilting again. Flowers (whether real or on fabric) bring so much joy, so we thought we’d do a roundup of some of the new floral fabric collections available this season.
Capri by Katarina Rochella for Art Gallery Fabrics
These gorgeous painted florals, coastal tones, citrus prints and beach chairs are inspired by the Island of Capri captured by Katarina Rochella’s signature style. We really are dreaming of summer sun and vacations with this whimsical and dreamy collection! Wouldn’t they make a wonderful picnic blanket or mini wall hanging, to create the feeling of sunshine all year round?
Stay Gold by Melody Miller of Ruby Star Society for Moda Fabrics
There are 28 prints in this stunning collection, but here are just a few of them that make our hearts sing! As the title suggests, there are accents of metallic throughout the collection, adding that special magical and indulgent feel to the prints. These beautiful butterflies, chrysanthemums, daisies, dragonflies and flowers in navy, blues, green, pinks and orange really do make for the most sumptuous collection and the star and ‘plus’ blender fabrics offset the big blooms perfectly.
Spring Riviere By Kate Merritt for Cloud 9 Fabrics
Designed by British Designer Kate Merrit, this gorgeous collection is inspired by the idyllic River Marne where Kate lives in France. Featuring big floral blooms, swans, butterflies and lilies, the essence of Kate’s river walks is beautifully captured in this colourful collection.
Creatures Great and Small by Beck Ng for Cloud 9 Fabrics
The earthy tones and range of animals that feature in this lovely collection by Beck Ng celebrates all creatures, flora and fauna -no matter how great or small- that we share our world with. It also reminds us that we all have a part to play in protecting these creatures and nature for future generations.
Hampton Court by Karen Lewis for Figo Fabrics
Friend of the Quilter’s Planner Karen Lewis has done it again with another gorgeous, fresh collection called Hampton Court Place, which is a grade I listed building and home to Henry VIII. Inspired by the elaborate ironwork in the ornate gates to the cobblestones throughout the paths and courtyards as well as the unstructured grasslands and wild meadows in the neighboring Royal parks, Karen has designed this colorful and versatile collection that just speaks Spring in volumes.
Grow and Harvest by Alexandra Bordallo for Art Gallery Fabrics
Finally, we are completely crushing over this gorgeous ‘Grow and Harvest’ collection by Alexandra Boradallo. Featuring rural scenes such as adorable chickens, a henhouse, garden essentials, tulips, poppies and ditsy florals, it really is such a pretty collection.
Which collection’s your favourite? It’s hard to choose! We hope looking at all these pretty fabrics has got you inspired to get stitching this Spring, to make something beautiful!
