At the weekend I paid a visit to Creative Quilting fabric shop in East Molesey. I regularly go there to pick up wadding and forage for interesting fabrics and I came across some fabrics that I designed for Makower UK. The collection is called Sail Away and has a fresh nautical theme which includes boats and beach items. The style of the group was inspired by the look of linocuts, with their stylised feel and irregular linework.
The fabric I bought was this fabulous boat print on a rolling sea background. The boats are incorporated into the sea but stand out boldly too.
Other designs in the collection include beach huts, boats, nautical icons and crabs! I love the quirkiness of the crabs and think it would make a great lining to a bag.
These ten inch squares use a different nautical scene in each one and were designed to be used as panels for cushions or for making into beach bags. They could also be used as table mats.
This border print is lovely and bold and uses many of the images from the other designs.
The border print is perfect for making into little girl's dresses. This one was in the window of Creative Quilting.
