Feeling Tropical: Lizards, fish, frogs and more!

Feeling tropical isn't just about batiks! It's mid July and we're in the mood for some more bright, summery prints! Luckily, Kanvas has plenty of options to keep us focused on fun, starting with these tropical-themed collections.

Rainbow Tropics:

Fish, lizards and toucans--no need to visit the rainforest when the rainforest can come to you! We're thinking pillows, backpacks and fun little zipper bags and sacks for kids or kids at heart.

Tropic Rainforest III:

Same idea with a more realistic touch--lizards, frogs, snakes and butterflies in both brights on black and a camouflage-type colorway.

Match these prints up with the subtle patterns of Pat Cambell's Fossil Ferns prints--100+ in all, so you're sure to find the perfect hue to match! We've picked a few of our favorites to match Rainbow Tropics and Tropic Rainforest here:

  1. Love 'em...except for the snakes. I'm not a snake person, but there are others that are. Hmmmm...what could I do with "U-Can the Toucan"?

  2. The Rainbow Tropics are so cute!

  3. Love the Tropic Rainforest III... those frogs are butterflies are beautiful!

  4. There are gorgeous fabrics but don´t kive snakes.

  5. a lovely collection, if you could call bugs lovely and I am really taken with the fossil ferns, will look for these at the Festival of quilts next month in Birmingham,(UK) fingers crossed someone will have them
