Country Living Fair Spring 2012 - Top Picks - Betty Boyns

These fabrics by Betty Boyns caught my eye at the Country Living Spring 2012 Fair, most specifically the Star Burst fabric which is new for 2012: it has a 1950s look about it, with those spindly lines and dots, and its a nice alternative to polkadots (although I also quite fancy the green polkadot in the pic below).

Betty Boyns is a vintage and country inspired fabric and stationnery design company based in Cornwall - and I was lucky to meet the designer herself, Paula Nicholls, when I visited the Fair.  Paula has combined her arts training with her family heritage (her father and other family members were fabric dyers and block printers) and her love of the countryside to create a range of fabrics that would look good in a country or city home. And they are a very good price at £15 / metre (150cm wide), and the pinnies cost just £13.
