Mod Corsage - Impressions by Anna Maria Horner for FreeSpirit Fabrics
100% cotton 42/43" wide
One of my favorite personal projects is a patchwork design called Mod Corsage where I've drawn inspiration from vintage Broderie Perse applique but put a modern, straight-line spin on the bouquet building. An exciting part of creating these somewhat improvisational, patchwork bouquets is sourcing the best fabrics for the floral, stem, leaf and background elements of the design. As a designer who never tires of the floral theme, it occurred to me that these three simple categories were a perfect direction to base an entire fabric collection. Mod Corsage offers bright, illustrative bouquet scenes with vintage flair, as well as softer, more traditional floral renderings for balance. There are also quirky, modern geometrics with both high and low drama, and plenty of floral component pops here and there to build bouquets across all patchwork traditions. And of course so many of the fabrics are gorgeous stand-alone pieces perfect for fashion, accessory and home projects. Mod Corsage is everything I love about patchwork, flowers and color all rolled into one collection!
