My Australiana fabric collections are designed for quilting, but are perfect for any sewing projects for handmade businesses, or home sewing projects.
Australiana fabric Collections
Taking Flight has 9 unique coordinating Australian fabric prints that showcase two iconic Aussie birds. A cheeky cockatoo, and some of my favourite singing friends, the magpies. To read the full story about how my cockatoo came to life head over to this blog post Taking Flight fabric.
The fabric prints contain lots of pretty native flowers. Purple and yellow nodding lily flowers, blue china orchids and red Lechenaultia flowers. They dance prettily across the entire range. These fabrics bring a truly unique modern Australian feel to your sewing room!
Bush Gum Blossoms
Bush Gum Blossoms is special to my heart because all of the elements were hand painted from little bits of the Australian bush from around my home. The gum blossoms were actually collected by my teenage daughter on her way from school. My children know me well! The collection has 10 pretty coordinating fabrics are designed perfectly for quilting, or any other sewing project.
