Horizon from Kathy Doughty is HERE!

Kathy Doughty’s latest collection for Free Spirit Fabrics is here! And oh my goodness it is beautiful. We’ve got 16 gorgeous bolts and can’t wait to take this collection to Craft4Crafters with us 15-17th  February at Westpoint Exeter. We’re busy working on some projects for Free Spirit using this range and a couple of others so plenty to keep us busy.

Here’s what Kathy has to say about this beautiful new collection:

Travel in your mind to the horizon…where the earth meets the sky….where the familiar morphs into the universe…where discovery abides and possibilities are limitless. Powered by the sun, the Australian horizon inspired me to create mood in a glance with light lines and shadow, vibrant color and dusty dream shades. The outback is a unique world where the key element is contrast. Step in and share this place filled with surprise…birds that do not fly, trees filled with water! The expansive land is dotted with purpose built structures that draw life from the earth. Fencing checkers the landscape aiming to keep some things in and some things out! Horizons, a collection that is dynamic, diverse and useful in hue, scale and dimension. Enjoy an imaginary trip you can enjoy in the comfort of your own sewing station!

 

Not familiar with Kathy? Amanda and I have most of her Material Obsession books and have been watching her fabric designs develop. This one is a fantastic start to add to our collections. Click here to learn a little bit more about Kathy.

Happy Sewing!
