This fabric collection began as a hand-drawn sketch of several flowers including roses, daisies, and larger petaled flowers with flowing petals and texture like hibiscus. The color palette is inspired by the darker, shadowed hues of tropical foliage. I imagine the twilight shadows of the shorter winter days in the tropics. The gorgeous palette includes a soft peach, fuchsia, a dark red, fern green, chartreuse and denim blue. A coordinating solid fabric of these colors is include in the collection for coordinating linings, borders or trim in any sewing project.
