Each design has been created in two colourways, with most on a blue ground or a cream ground. All colours can be intermixed and all compliment each other. I included a mix of Japanese florals as well as a selection of other Japanese images such as koi fish and temples.

In conjunction with this collection, Lynne Goldsworthy has designed a quilt pattern and I was so pleased with the outcome. It shows off the Indigo designs so well.

The 'Indigo' collection that I designed for Makower UK is now in stores and I'm loving it! I've been a textile designer for many years, but I still get a thrill when I see my designs. I especially like these ones as they are inspired by the indigo fabrics and designs of Japan. I lived in Japan for four years and often found myself gravitating towards the soft, muted blues of the indigo-dyed fabrics there - the older the better!
