Just In – Nordic – a Scandinavian inspired fabric by Camelot Cottons

Nordic-by-Camelot-FabricWhen I saw this fabric and the display at the 2015 Quilt Market last October in Houston – I was so struck by the freshness, vibrancy and life in this gorgeous collection. Nordic, a 21 sku line by Camelot Cottons is inspired by the clean and sharp prints of Scandinavia, including the contrasting black and white colors (with a hint of pink!). The ikat, swiss cross, and diamond prints add a cool feel to an otherwise simple color palette.
