Happy fabrics. Oh yes.

More fabric designs! Flowers! Happy Flowers. Wouldn't have looked out of place in the 60s, huh? I like them so much. I want to make a quilt with this fabric. Maybe in a few different colourways. But definitely these flowers. Because flowers make me happy...

Happy Trellis Pink.  There's something about these segmented circles that I'm really, really diggin'. Also, I have been reading about Sashiko embroidery lately and it is a commonly used design. Though, I suspect, not with as much colour!

Happy Triangles. Ok, by now you may be starting to think that everything in my world is all happy and flowery and colours and maybe a bit trippy..? It's not. Unfortunately? But I guess you should send out in the world what you would like to get back. So, if I send out colours and flowers and generally happy thoughts, surely, that will come back to me, right?

How would you use these fabrics? And can fabric be a way to change the world?

    I love the triangle fabric, I'd use it to make dresses for my rag dolls or for a baby's blanket!

  3. These are so charming and cheerful. I love all three but especially the trellis print. I think I would use them to make a zippered bag. Are they available for purchase? Well done!
