New Patchwork Pattern

I have just printed a new pattern. I have collaborated with a graphic designer (Mitch Manuel) to use his designs in patchwork and applique. Mitch designs lots of patterns using the Koru and Kowhaiwhai as inspiration. This is the first pattern in our collaboration which we are calling Down Under Designs.
This first pattern is Star Flowers
 It is really simple to make as it is one piece of fabric for the background and the black shapes are appliqued over this fabric. How you place them creates the pattern of flowers and stars. I had fun quilting a lot in the design but it could be quilted quite simply with straight lines and it would still look very effective. Audition several fabrics for your backgrounds to see what you like best. I chose a batik that was very multi coloured.
The pattern is now available for NZ$15
