Palm Canyon Aruba Half Roll by Violet Craft for Robert Kaufman Fabrics

The Aruba colorway of the Palm Canyon collection by Violet Craft makes a bold statement with black, turquoise and pops of citrusy lemon in atomic retro-inspired geometrics.

This Half Roll is the perfect companion for the 54 40′ quilt pattern included in your box this month.
View the entire collection here.

For the first time EVER, we are offering you the option to purchase an exclusive Half Roll in an alternate colorway! Simply substitute the Palm Canyon Aruba with the Palm Canyon Creamsicle for a sweet, peachy pink to go with your tart citrusy lemon!
