Imagine a small pond surrounded by flowers, trees and shrubs as the seasons pass by. Bustling with activity, insects, frogs, birds, ducks and swans call the pond their home. Everything down to the smallest detail has a purpose for someone.
As days grow shorter and colder the pace slows down, leaves turning red and ginger before being whisked away by the crisp breeze. Winter arrives with a carpet of white snow and blue shadows. Red berries decorate the sleeping landscape for Christmas.
The BirdPond Collection is inspired by the image of life by a pond and takes you trough the colors of the autumn and winter seasons. The sprinkle effect that characterizes this collection is inspired by nature makes all the fabrics work together in harmony to create lovely patchworks.
We where so exited when The LemonTree Collection was chosen for Homespun’s 2018 BOM, and even more exited when we saw the result.
The quilt titled “My Butterfly Patch” has been designed by the extremely talented and creative Sarah and Rachel Roxburgh of Roxy Creations. This quilt is so gorgeous, thank you Sarah and Rachel for your amazing work!
Homespun magazine will launch one block each month for 9 months and one further month for finishing (total of 10 months). The first block is released in the February issue today!
The magazine is available from shops and newsagents in Australia, or digitally through Zinio, the Apple Newstand or Google Play.
Visit the Roxy Creations blog where you will find links to all of Rachel and Sarah’s social media.
