Imagine a rainbow of colors, vibrant, free, and bursting with life in Wild Blossoms. Wildflowers are these brave and bold blooms that proudly show their spirit and beauty. They are not afraid to grow in the most unexpected places.
Whether it is a field strewn with goldenrod or Queen Anne’s lace adding splendor to the landscape, the range of textures and colors from these wild blossoms is a delight. Bumblebees visit the pink clover and bluebonnets stand tall with pride. Orange poppies dance with yellow daisies. With Wild Blossoms, I wanted to show the rainbow of colors in a big width-of-fabric print. This ombre panel (12” continuous repeat) blends from color to color along the rainbow, with our busy bees visiting along the way. The WOF print allows you to use it in one big stretch as the rainbow, or cut it up to have fun with all the colors and flowers as you choose. I truly thought of this as a symphony of color with wildflowers.
Coordinates for this group separate out some of the flowers, so the bluebonnets can be the star on their own, or golds and oranges of daisies and poppies bring a sunshine feel. Queen Anne’s lace brings softness with pretty butterflies adding a pop of accent color. The “Leafy World” print brings a mix of colors or monochromatic palette with all different types of leaves. A little flower drawing, “Little Wild Things,” brings all the flowers together in a simple drawn way. What if you want to show off your wild blooms at home? The print with canning jar vases displaying these wild beauties does just that. A sketchy little diagonal line print of blotted graph paper adds a subtle texture to mix and blend.
Wild Blossoms coordinates with colors from existing Thatched basics so it is easy to blend and extend the colors even more. The colors in the line range from Thatched Cream, Early Dawn (pink), Berry, Scarlet, Apricot, Buttercup, Chartreuse, Grass, Mist (light blue) and Navy.
