We have a new addition to the Serendipity fabric family – Serendipity Color Wheel!

This collection is a variation on the SERENDIPITY collection.  It uses a similar texture and layout as seen in my SERENDIPITY fabric line.  However, this collection blends beautifully around the color wheel, in a  lovely batik-like texture.

Each fabric features 3 colors in an ombre layout.  Color 1 is 7” wide, Color 2 is 7” wide, Color 3 is 14” wide and then it reverses back again.

There are 8 colors in this collection.  Caribbean, Spring, Sunrise and Mist blend around the color wheel in tints (light colors.) Colors Ocean, Summer, Sunrise and Night blend around the color wheel in shades (dark colors. )
