I am so pleased to be able to finally share my new fabric designs with you! There are two new designs, each printed in two different colourways, that collectively I'm calling Verano. Verano is a Spanish word meaning "summertime", which I thought was appropriate as I designed both patterns whilst I was here in Spain in July.
The first design is called Petals. It is a large scale print reflecting the ancient architecture and art nouveau that surrounds us in Spain. Petals is printed in ink blue and sea green on off-white linen/cotton fabric (140cm wide).
The second design is called Leaves. It's a pretty little curly leaf that I drew one day after a walk around the town. I really enjoyed devising the repeat for this design ~ it's a six spot repeat for those interested. Leaves is printed in crimson and powder blue on off-white linen/cotton fabric (140cm wide). It's really hard to capture the powder blue colourway with a photograph - it's very pale and delicate.
Each of these fabrics is available in the shop now by the fat quarter (multiple fat quarters are cut as a continuous piece), and incase you can't decide, there is also a Verano Fabric Pack which contains a 35cm x 35cm piece of each fabric.
I would also like to welcome my friend Pam to the Yardage Design team. Pam will be cutting, packing and posting orders for the Yardage Design online shop while I am here in Spain, so it's business as usual!
I can't wait to hear what you think of these new designs. I'm also looking forward to seeing what people make with them. I'm planning to make a summer quilt over the next couple of weeks.
Pop over to our creative spaces to see what everyone else has been up to this week.
