Daily Swatch

The Daily Swatch is a fun little project where we feature a fabric swatch-a-day.

Elk Grove Knit yellow poppy flower

The Daily Swatch: Yellow Poppy Flower Knit

[caption id="attachment_1203" align="alignnone" width="600"] Image Credit: www.birchfabrics.com[/caption] This mustardy yellow floral print could say Spring or it could say Fall (if you're in the northern hemisphere). Either way I'm thinking little girl's a-line skirt with elastic waist, leggings, and something gree..
Echino zebra

The Daily Swatch: Echino Zebra Yellow

This is a classic Echino print: bold animals paired with bold patterned stripes. I particularly like this one though with the striking black and yellow. It's a great print for a unisex kids' bedroom, with the slightly masculine zebras and the pink and purple patterned section. For some Echino project inspira..
Valori wells wish voile treasure patience

The Daily Swatch: Valori Wells Treasure Patience

This one is not exactly a 'knock your socks off', 'stand out from the crowd' design, but I love it's elegant simplicity. And I do love Valori Wells. I've been looking for some voile for some summer skirts for my girls and came across this one. I'm after voile because it will be all soft, and floaty to wear. Like..
Fort Firefly Sea Green Flower Girl

The Daily Swatch: Sea Green Flower Girl

[caption id="attachment_1199" align="alignnone" width="600"] Image Credit: birchfabrics.com[/caption] I love the colours in this design from Birch Fabrics. It's from the Fort Firefly collection by Teagan White. I also love the fact that it's a much larger scale than most quilting/craft fabrics. Oh, and it's organic,..
Lotta Jansdotter Glimma Tove

The Daily Swatch: Tove in Dandelion by Lotta Jansdotter

I love the Scandinavian simplicity of this design by Lotta Jansdotter. It's part of the Glimma collection and is called Tove in Dandelion. The grey and yellow combination is still very on trend and doesn't seem to be going away any time soon. Fabric Source I can't find this one in Australia anywhere, but it is av..
Mojave Opaque Leah Duncan

The Daily Swatch: Mojave Opaque by Leah Duncan

Love, love, love the colours in this fabric. Said to be inspired by Nevada's vast landscape, the Leah Duncan design is printed on a quilting weight cotton and is printed by Art Gallery Fabrics. Fabric Source I can't find it anywhere in Australia yet (if you know of somewhere please share in the comments below), ..
Swavelle curtain fabric

The Daily Swatch: Swavelle Mill Creek Brookwater Curtain Fabric

Something about this floral design struck me. I think it's the balance of colours and the water colour effect of the screen printing. It's essentially a curtain fabric but is also heavy enough for slip covers and light upholstery. Fabric Details Available from: www.fabric.com (reasonable shipping cost to Austral..
Elk Grove Jay-Cyn for Birch

The Daily Swatch: Elk Grove by Birch Fabrics

I particularly love the colour palette in this design by Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics. The collection is called Elk Grove, and this design is called Elk Fam Multi. It comes in an organic cotton quilting weight, and also an organic stretch knit. Fabric Details Available here at Modes4u.com (they ship to Aust..
Fabric swatch wiksten dealtry

The Daily Swatch: Wiksten Dealtry

Wow, the talent on Spoonflower has grown enormously since I wandered there last! It's dangerous though, I could spend all day there. Today's fabric swatch is called Dealtry in cerulean (blue), by Wiksten. It can also be printed in turquoise. As with most spoonflower fabric designs, you can order them printed on..
