Bari J. has such a cool story. More than a year ago she announced her interest in designing fabric. She learned how, printed her designs using Spoonflower, then took them to Quilt Market in fall of 08 and showed them to companies there. She landed a deal with Windham right then and there! Full Bloom was born. It couldn’t have hurt that her painterly florals, teapots, birds, and coordinates were so beautiful, unique, and expert-looking. She managed to pick color combinations that are somehow striking and soothing at the same time.
Hopefully after the insanity that comes with quilt market preparations, Bari will grant us an interview so we can hear more about this collection. So stay tuned.
