Seaside Fabric – Wishing for Sunshine

At Heirs and Graces we have decided that the cold of the Winter has lasted quite long enough. It is time to bring on the sunshine and crack out the new seaside themed fabric, perfect for quilts to get ready for taking to the beach, on holiday or just to lie on in the back garden and dream.

The first range is in two colourways that actually compliment each other. There is the clamshell design, the fishes and the wonderful seagulls. How much fun would it be to paper piece a clamshell design quilt out of these fabrics.

Here is the range altogether with yummy fat quarter bundles.

The second range of fabric has a definite nautical feel showing boats and lighthouses as well as seagulls.

It is impossible to show the detail of these fabrics to their best in the photographs, there is a printed grain that gives it the look of linen.

These seagulls have been adored by everyone. A truly beautiful fabric which also can only be fully appreciated when seen for real.

The little boats are just too sweet.

Here you can see the Seaside Quilts book by Carol Porter and Rebecca Hansen which is full of wonderful designs and inspiration.

We also have the plains in from this range so you do not have to worry about finding just the right shade to match. Altogether this display has put us all in the mood for sunshine and holidays, and of course quilting!
