While I was designing Home Front, I was inspired by America in the 1940′s. I pictured ladies with curls in their hair, donning floral printed dresses and cute aprons, bustling about in their quaint kitchens making homemade pies and home-cooked meals. I was inspired by day-to-day items like rayon printed dresses which were especially popular at the time, feed sack prints, as well as everyday objects like apples and fluttering leaves. I wanted to bring in fun bright colors with touches of black, which was very common back then.
I love how the focal prints Vivid Blooms bring in all the colors.
And I especially adore Fluttering Leaves, Apple Toss & Ruffle Stripe!
I really like the kits created for this collection too!! I’m in love with Vintage Violets Table Topper! I love the color combination, the size and especially the scalloped edge!
I also just adore the Easy Clean Pocket Bibs, I sewed up the kits you see on the web, I jumped at the chance because I plan on giving them to friends that have just recently had babies. If I were a mom, I’m sure I would want them too!
I also love Mari’s Wooden Spools Lap Quilt, I think all the colors and prints pop so nicely on the black background!
What do you think of this bright and cheery collection? I’d love to hear what types of projects you see it in!
