We have an exciting double premier this season! My folk art inspired Wild Child designs grace a new line of FreeSpirit fabrics and my first collection for Renaissance Ribbons. Hand in hand, both fabric and ribbons are infused with "Flower Power".
Designing for Renaissance Ribbon has been an awesome experience. I can hardly believe the intricate detail in these finely woven creations. There are five different designs in several colorways, including my signature insect motif (which is also reversible). These ribbons will be perfect for all kinds of wearables and accessories. I personally have plans to make a contemporary version of a traditional red wool Laplanders jacket with floral ribbon trim. In fact, I'm finding that almost everything can benifit from some ribbon trim.
Discover your inner Wild Child! These new designs come in three vibrant colorways... Pink, Red and Blue. The hand is wonderful and the prints are ideal for all kinds of crafy projects. To find Wild Child view our vendors list or contact FreeSpirit to find a fine fabric store in your neighborhood or online. Click here for a handy PDF print out of the entire line.
The Pink group is over-the-top gorgeous and girly. Imagine layettes for baby, flirty frills for teens, pretty pillows and garden graced quilts and accessories.
The Red colorway is bright and sassy. "Flower Children" may have a pleasant flash-back when they see these color combinations. Perfect for sunny summer frocks, beach bags and porch pillows.
The Blue group is more refined... Delft blue with a splash of gold. These will be lovely mixed with your Willowwear and a bouquet of daisies. Cool and collected colors for the beach house and summer accessories of all kinds.
Pay special attention to the Masquerade design. It is a 2" X 8" diamond which makes easy "cheater cloth" for sawtooth borders. In jelly roll cuts it makes suprisingly contemporary quilts. Modern quilters will love the graphic potential of this versitile fabric.
