N THE FINAL COUNT DOWN NOW!!!
The fabric speaks.....color speaks! LOUDLY!!!! When I first saw these large scale focus fabrics now featured in this new project I was breathless. When they arrived and I started to play I was in love. These beautiful prints by Australian designer Denise Burkitt from her Fancifree Collection for Free Spirit Fabrics are incredible. Inspired by her land, combined with her painterly style, full of motion and texture I knew I had to let them stand proudly on their own, to find their own path.... and they did.
I knew the cuts had to be large but there had to be craft in it too. The core palette is only the beginning. The fabric and those whom have come to play with it have set their own paths and they are divergent...just like the land they have sprung from. I just need another day or two of focused "sew time" to have it completely pieced. This one may beat out the others to the shop floor.
Once the design direction was set I went back immediately to Free Spirit and bought EVERYTHING they had left of this luscious Honey Locust yellow print! To be honest is was kind of an empowering feeling to boldly say...
