Friendly hedgehogs come out to play in a vibrant garden teeming with life in Tamara Kate's new collection Frolic. Full of bright blossoms and whimsical critters painted in her distinctive watercolor style, this effervescent line is a delightful choice for summer sewing. Warm pinks and oranges are combined with leafy greens and bold blues, while the white grounds bring a breath of fresh air. The versatile Double Border print offers all sorts of possibilities, from whole cloth quilts to sweet dresses and skirts.

In addition to Quilting Cotton, nine coordinating designs were also printed on soft Cotton/Spandex Knit with just the right amount of stretch. The bright saturated colors are a wonderful pick for summer dresses, t-shirts and leggings.

Sewing inspiration abounds on Tamara's Blog, where the Frolic Blog Tour has showcased a range of projects from girl's apparel to quilts and a comfy bean bag chair for your little ones.
