A new day breaks over the countryside and the sky is painted with pretty shades of peach and yellow.  The air is sweet with the scent of green, growing crops, the sun is shining, and the world feels fresh and full of possibilities.

Break of Day, the debut collection by Sweetfire Road for Moda, marries inspiration from vintage storybooks with the love of a bright, sunshine-filled day in the country. 

Wouldn't this collection look fabulous in your home?


Butterflies, dragonflies, and exotic foliage spring to life in the Fantastic Forest fabrics by Robert Kaufman. These bright fabrics, combined with every imaginable creature and foliage, will definitely put a smile on your face.
