I am excited to announce I have 4 new Australiana fabric collections available! Taking Flight fabric collection, Bush Gum Blossoms fabric collection, Blue Skies & Butterflies, and Monotremes and Marsupials. All designed exclusively for Kennard & Kennard fabrics and are available now for orders! You can shop retail right here or see a full list of stockists above.
Each collection is on trend and features beautiful Australian birds and flowers, in a contemporary pattern design. I love Australiana fabric so being able to bring a new and modern design to this genre of fabrics has been a dream of mine for a while. My Australiana fabric collections are designed for quilting, but are perfect for any sewing projects for handmade businesses, or home sewing projects.
Taking Flight has 9 unique coordinating Australian fabric prints that showcase two iconic Aussie birds. A cheeky cockatoo, and some of my favourite singing friends, the magpies. To read the full story about how my cockatoo came to life head over to this blog post Taking Flight fabric.
The fabric prints contain lots of pretty native flowers. Purple and yellow nodding lily flowers, blue china orchids and red Lechenaultia flowers. They dance prettily across the entire range. These fabrics bring a truly unique modern Australian feel to your sewing room!
Bush Gum Blossoms
Bush Gum Blossoms is special to my heart because all of the elements were hand painted from little bits of the Australian bush from around my home. The gum blossoms were actually collected by my teenage daughter on her way from school. My children know me well! The collection has 10 pretty coordinating fabrics are designed perfectly for quilting, or any other sewing project.

Blue Skies & Butterflies
Butterflies dance across wide open skies and the sound of the breeze in the grass whispers gently across the landscape. Blue Skies & Butterflies is a beautiful collection of fabrics that dance with Australian butterflies and flannel flowers, in gentle hues of pinks, blues, soft mint and chocolate – with a bright pop of persimmon pink. Perfect for any pretty quilting or sewing project.
Marsupials & Monotremes
Australiana fabric has never looked so cute! I am so excited to share my wombat, echidna and platypus fabric with you. Designed exclusively for Kennard & Kennard fabrics, these aussie animal fabrics will steal your heart. Waltzing wombats, cute Echidnas and playful Platypus friends feature in this stunning fabric collection of Australian Monotremes and Marsupials. The range is bold and vibrant, and not only sings in harmony with the Australian landscape with it’s reds, oranges and greens – but also brings a fun and modern twist to Australiana design by mixing it up with pinks and aqua’s. A sweet and modern folk style of Australian design.
