Fabric Friday: Mother's Day flowers


Say it with flowers on Mother’s Day this weekend – real ones, if you like, but these fab fabrics would be hard to beat. We’ve picked six of our favourites – bold and beautiful blooms inspired by flowers across the decades. We’re tempted…

To celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday we’ve been out in the virtual garden, picking our favourite flowers. These pink beauties are pretty gorgeous.

1. Aptly enough, this one’s called Cutting Garden and is from Amy Butler’s Caravan collection for Rowan. Amy’s original fabric range is being re-released this April. Really gorgeous. 2. We totally adore this pink Feedsacks fabric based on 1930s prints. Designed by Sara Morgan for Blue Hill Fabrics. We dare you to resist! Available from Laughing Hens. 3. Another retro-inspired lovely. Flower Bed Pale reminds us of a popular print from 1970s M&S. That will take some of you back! Available from Quilted Thimble Cottage.

So beautiful were the fabrics on our path, we couldn’t really stop with just pink ones… We think everyone will love this new 50s inspired fabric design by Denyse Schmidt. This one’s called Flea Market Fancy and is available from Hawthorne Threads.

These bold flower prints have all got a hint of vintage – and this one’s got a late 60s vibe going on. They definitely knew how to do flower power. She goes by the name of Suzie and we found her hanging out, acting cool at Seamstar.

Our final bold floral of the day. We feel like we’ve taken a trip through the decades… This one reminds of our 80s summer dresses with its vibrant brush stroke pattern. It’s actually one of Liberty’s new season fabrics. Called Glyn Ann, this fabric is from their National Gallery Collection, inspired by a selection of paintings at the museum. Available from Liberty.
