This iconic fabric was designed by Lucienne Day for Heals in 1966. Lucienne Day initially came to the attention of the Director of Heals Tom Worthington at her graduate show, and later she wowed the public with her 'Calyx' design, created for the Festival of Britain in 1951. She became the foremost surface pattern designer of her generation, and working alongside her husband, the furniture designer Robin Day, she set the trends in pattern design for the next 2 decades.

This beautiful fabric has been reclaimed, and is crisp, bright and and clean with no holes or marks. Please see the 3rd photo for an idea of the scale of the pattern. The colours have faded slightly, most noticeably the pinks, but I don't feel that this affects the appearance of the fabric unduly. It is a strong mid-weight cotton, suitable for all sorts of sewing projects.

Each fat quarter is 58cm wide by 50cm long. If more than one is ordered, they will be sent as one uncut piece of fabric.

There are 2 fat quarters available.
