There’s something amazing about the way that swallows and butterflies flit about in the fall.

The butterflies are slower and more serene, of course, as they float around our flowers. Swallows zip and dive, and it’s delightful,  watching them do acrobatics as they catch bugs on the wing.

Here’s a collection of fabric designs that celebrate the joy and delight of watching them fly. For these designs, I wanted to add texture as well as color and give them a country or farmhouse feel. So I distressed them with checks and stripes, and dots. Click on a thumbnail to visit the sale page.

I’d better say something here about fabrics and printing. These designs won’t print well on fabrics created from fiber blends. They’ll do better printed on 95-100% cotton or 95-100% synthetic (the printing processes used are different).

Don’t order the poly-cotton-spandex jersey in any of these colorways, though, as I don’t think that fiber blend will work for this.
