Just in time for warm weather & warm weather apparel comes BIRDS & THE BEES, my latest fabric collection with Michael Miller Fabrics!
Birds & The Bees is a little exploration into my love for winged creatures (they tend to make an appearance in the grand majority of my design work).
Where many see pesky bugs, I see pure magic. From large ostentatious birds perpetually seeking the spotlight, to the tiniest, delicately patterned bugs fluttering around a flower garden, I am constantly amazed by them all. The heights to which they can soar, their occasional, seemingly unplanned, comical flight paths, the patterning on their plumage… They are the thing of dreams.
There is a coral, teal & charcoal colour story, called Ladybug…
And a berry, lilac and indigo story called Bluejay…
Bolts and bolts of pretty colour, fanciful creatures and fun patterns, all on a lovely quilting-weight cotton.
Here is a closer look at a few patterns:
I hope you will find some magic of your own in creating a little something special with these fabrics for some young person in your life, or for someone young at heart… Perhaps even for yourself (I know you are a young-at-heart group. I just know it)!
Some talented sewers and I will have a slew of projects to share as inspiration over the coming weeks, so stay tuned here and I will point you in the right direction.
Here’s a little tease to get the juices flowing:
