Just like sewing, gardening is so rewarding. You get to plant something with your own hands, then watch it grow and come to life! Ever since I can remember, I've always enjoyed being in a garden, seeing all of the vegetables and fruit start off so small in size and how with patience and dedication of tending to them, they would get bigger in size and eventually turn ripe. When you finally got the chance to eat them, it was satisfying. Growing up in Florida, my parents had a "tropical garden" that had tons of mango (my favorite), orange, lemon, lime, pineapple, papaya, and avocado trees. Most of these fruits would turn "ripe" during the summer months, so waiting until that time made you savor them even more. Even to this day, I still get excited for "mango season" and it always reminds of my childhood, when I bite into a delicious piece of mango!
Inspired by this warm-fuzzy feeling and a simpler way of life, our designer Bonnie Christine created her latest fabric collection, “Gathered.” These twenty prints feature a variety of delights you’d collect from a garden like unexpected wildflowers, delicious fruits, and aromatic herbs. Infused with “late-summer” colors such as warm honey, olive green and dusty rose pink, these 100% premium cotton fabrics are great for “farmhouse meets modern” sewing projects.
