Simple Pleasures is a spring inspired fabric line created by Debbie Beaves for RJR. The main colors showcased in these quilt fabrics include bright green and happy yellow. The floral, dot and stripe designs are reminiscent of spring time when the trees and flowers start to bud and the winter fades away. It reminds me of that moment when I am walking around outside on a gloomy, drizzly day and I realize that spring is here. The bright green of new growth takes over the dull, dreary brown and gray of winter. The daffodils and forsythia bushes light up the yard. The birds sing a beautiful and cheerful song.
