Anna Maria Horner is a Genius

What is it with Anna Maria Horner, she is a creative genius.  Her collections have a bohemian melting pot quality, they never look mixy match and she makes me like things I usually can't abide- even leopard print.  Field Study is simply stunning.
I have already ordered my favourite prints from Annie at Village Haberdashery.  She is doing her build a bundle option just like she did with Flea Market Fancy as well as a colour way packs which are the pictures you can see here. 
Anna Maira Horner has a great selection of free patterns on her website, Katy Jones Imagingermonkey is just kicking off a Spinning Starts quilt a long and if you want a foundation pieced option for this quilt pattern rather than templates, I drew one right here to download for the quilt a long.
I think I am going to make the Feather Bed quilt, simpler than it looks with a strip pieced method for the feathers, genius design!  There are more fabrics to come in this range, velveteens and I am hoping for voiles too- fingers crossed.  I know from past experience, my favourite AMH prints can disappear whilst I sit and admire but don't get round to buying so I wasted not time for this collection.  If you just want a taster and want to save your pennies there is a 6" charm square pack of 30 prints, and a little can go a long way!

  5. I've got a couple of the field study prints already and yes love this range. I also love that feathers pattern and was wondering or is it hoping if it's actually simpler than it first appears?

  13. Agreed re AMH, there is always something to love in her collections, and her work is always original. Really DON'T like those leopard prints though...! I am really looking forward to the velveteens - hope we get some good ones here in the UK.
