The FreeSpirit website is now showing Jay McCarroll‘s two debut collections, Woodland Wonderland and Garden Friends. My first impression — weird! In a good way. The deer and bunnies are very 70s and both collections have a kind of cute/psychedelic vibe. I love the Martha Negley-esque tree rings especially.
It’s just not at all what I would expect coming out of a Project Runway winner, so I have lots of questions to ask if I’m lucky enough to talk to him at Quilt Market.
Samples from both collections are mixed up below — I have no patience with my slow WordPress today so I’m sorry for not separating them out all nicely. Fortunately you can check them out on the FreeSpirit site to get a better presentation.
