Maybe it's our recent trip to the midwest, but Miina Äkkijyrkkä's Spring 2008 Marimekko fabric pattern, Kevätjuhla, fills us with energy and a breath of fresh air...

The young little calves running around look just like springtime to us. We wonder where we'll see this cotton fabric pop up - pillows? Skirts? We'd love to see it. The pattern comes in four colorways. From Marimekko's description, Kevätjuhla...

pays homage to spring and freedom, and to those who dare jump into anything new and exciting. The joy of calves rushing through spring fields is embodied in the fresh background colours of the design; a glowing orange, a bright green and a turquoise. In addition, the Kevätjuhla print appears on white batiste, which is perfect for light and fluttering summer curtains.

Another of Miina Äkkijyrkkä's fabrics, Unelmia (right), is a charming art print, which is both gentle and rough, like the intensity of a life inspired by dreams.
