Verna Mosquera - Fruta Y Flor - Strawberry Bouquet
Item # PWVM144
I have always been fascinated by vintage botanical fruit prints. On a recent antiquing trip I came upon a marvelous collection of them and as I began to study them I realized that I was most drawn to the pieces that had fruit and flowers in combination. The colors were delicious I was immediately inspired. As I took to my sketchbook I began to draw a wonderful group of vases filled with roses and swags of different fruits. I loved the juxtaposition of the fruits and flowers together which led me to designing my newest FreeSpirit fabric collection, Fruta y Flor. I let the images inspire the color palette and chose various shades of reds, pinks and greens. The prints began to take on a wonderful retro kitchen vibe so adding aqua, jade and yellow was the perfect fit. Fruta y Flor is fresh and playful. The wonderful rose and fruit prints work beautifully with a petite gingham check and a sugary dot. This charming collection is perfect for quilts, children's wear and sewn home decor projects. I am so excited to begin stitching with Fruta y Flor. My mind is already designing different projects aprons, covered bar stools, seat cushions, darling little girls attire and of course patchwork, applique and embroidered quilts.
