Ink & Spindle + Cloud 9 = Landscape









Kangaroo Paw, a tough Australian native, is distinctive in shape and name. I have grown them before but not in a sunny enough spot, so I have bought a new plant and am thoroughly enjoying the wonderful long stems of colourful flowers. I tempted to leave it in a pot on our back deck in clear view every day.

Cloud 9 Fabrics (always organic with low impact dyes) have just released a new collection called Landscape by Australian designers Ink & Spindle.  This is a very exciting collaboration. I recently bought an offcuts bundle from Ink & Spindle to sample their work. It's really good to have some of their uniquely Australian designs now available in quilting weight organic cotton. Landscape comes in two different colour ways, both beautiful. I'm enjoying contemplating what to make with those which I have purchased from the US. I believe they will also be available through some Australian outlets, just not sure where yet. I will keep you updated.

I would have this lovely flower set on the terrace. I love kangaroos. Materials are beautiful and good possibilities to buy in your country. Regards.

Beautiful fabric and wonderful Kangaroo Paw, which I had once in my greenhouse. I could not keep it for many years because of our climate it's difficult to grow here. Your picture of the real kangaroo is my favorite, look how he is watching your......

Wonderful Karen! Such fun as I realized "kangaroo paws! Yep, now there on the fabric...Awww and a kangaroo!" Thanks for a super sweet smile this morning! And my vote is to leave your plant in a pot for now, at least :)

Love your kangaroo paw! I've only seen kangaroo paw as an ingredient in toiletries. Lovely flower. And of course, your nature inspired fabrics and the mammal 'roo too!

That plant is really beautiful...it would be a highlight in my garden too. I still can't imagine what it would be like to have a kangaroo in the wild!
