One of my favorite things about sewing is getting lost at the sound of my sewing machine! Sewing away, chain piecing, cutting fabric, and next thing you know many hours have passed, and I was able to escape to my happy place. That is the greatest part about this community, that we can all share this passion, and how we can relate to how happy it makes us! A lot of this joy starts with just choosing what fabrics speak to me, and as of recently, all I’ve been daydreaming about is going on a sunny vacation to the beach. Luckily for me, Katarina Roccella just released the perfect collection that will take me to my dream vacation, and it’s called CAPRI!
Prepare for a sightseeing venture through the stunning island of Capri with Katarina Roccella’s latest collection. Where this collection features her signature style of painted florals, coastal tones, and zesty summery prints that will fulfill your wanderlust desires.
Katarina Roccella is also an incredible pattern designer and the number of details and artistry in her collections is one to appreciate! If you ever hand her prints in your hands, you’ll find yourself staring for a long time as your eyes graze at all the beautiful details hidden within every inch. All her artwork is her very own paintings that she used watercolor and inks to put together, and somehow transform into fabric magic!
Luckily for us fabric lovers, we have 16 quilting cotton prints and 2 substrates to play with. With its sunny colors and Mediterranean vibes present in this collection, I can already imagine the beach quilts, summery cover-ups, and dresses that will be created with these fabrics!
