Deborah and I are good friends. Check out her insta, FB and Etsy.
In the photograph below, I had just published Inspired to Quilt, which you can see on a banner-ad above Pokey and Deborah’s heads. That was more than 10 years ago! Such good times! [I have since published two more books, Dreaming from the Journal Page and Playful Fabric Printing] Deborah has published her own book too, Art Quilt Collage which covers many of the techniques she used in making the above wall art series. I highly recommend it.
This photo captures the first time we met and we were wearing the same t-shirt! We hadn’t planned it!
What pleases me the most about Deborah’s work is that her aesthetic is crisp, clean, playful and her use of stitch is very communicative, as if it were its own language.
This is what Deborah has to say about working with Florabunda!, “As an artist, I love using botanical shapes in my work and the leaves, flowers, vines and patterns in this collection are beautifully realistic but have a true hand-designed quality about them. The subtle chevron print may be my new favorite fabric. It’s perfect to ground a design and the colors are familiar but slightly unexpected. You’ll definitely see Florabunda pop up in my work in the future!

One thought on “Deborah Boschert’s Florabunda!”
These are so exciting! I love how she took small parts of your fabric and create these very unique pieces of art!!
