Verna Mosquera just has that LOOK in everything she does, that magical beauty that is simply enchanting. You know what I’m talking about. The soft colors and romantic prints transport you to a wonderful place. Verna is back in the fabric world with her third line for FreeSpirit Fabrics, called Heavenly Peace. Its inspiration may have holiday origins, but it can be used any time of the year. Wonderful poinsettia florals (that aren’t super super poinsettia!), ethereal carnations, fresh plaids, contemporary diamonds, and stylized toiles make Heavenly Peace a line you will love all year ’round.
I am so excited to talk about my new line, Heavenly Peace for FreeSpirit Fabrics. I can hardly believe the time has come where customers can purchase these fabrics, that the collection is arriving in stores. The Heavenly Peace fabric collection is my vision of holiday 2010.
I have always loved celebrating Christmas with my family and friends. While I decorate every year, each year the decor changes and I try to put an interesting spin on the traditional. As most people know I am drawn to that which is vintage and have an extensive collection of vintage Christmas ornaments. When I decided to do Heavenly Peace I wanted the colors and prints to express that which I was so fond of during the holidays.
The pinks, greens, greys and ivory in the collection represent pink poinsettias, noble firs, silver bells and sugar cookies. The prints aren’t ones that people would expect; there are no little trees here. It is more a romantic representation of who I am and what I love. You’ll find gorgeous florals, peppermint stripes, a fabulous paisley and an itty bitty snowflake print. When I received my yardage I immediately dove in to one of my favorite quilt designs ever, Noel. This is my new block of the month design which will debut in May of 2010. It is comprised of all of the wonderful Christmas images you can imagine. For a peek, check out my news page. For years I have replied to e-mails asking where customers might find the exact fabrics I have used in a quilt. I am so happy to say Noel is made exclusively from my Heavenly Peace collection.
While I plan to design many holiday items out of this line, I think my favorite thing about it is that it is so versatile and can be used for so many other things. I can see using it not only for quilts but women and children’s garments as well as home decor. It is fresh and bright and many of the pieces in the collection also blend beautifully with my last line Savon Bouquet. I hope that customers will enjoy using it as much as I am.
