The Flora & Foliage Fabric Collection

I loved designing the Flora & Foliage panel so much that I decided to create a fabric collection to go along with it! From deep teals to bright raspberry, these prints are the perfect accompaniment. While all the prints are spectacular, the woodgrain prints offer more than just good looks. Designed to be the perfect machine quilting training wheels, quilt along the lines of the print to finally master the woodgrain design.
