Floral Retrospective Fabric poster

Anna Maria Horner tells us what It is "to revitalize some of my all-time favorite floral prints in their best-selling original form, and some with all new colorations sure to inspire a fresh look for timeless art! Floral Retrospective is a concise 16-piece collection, which sits beautifully alongside so many other styles of fabrics from vintage to modern, and everything in between. Once upon a time, these prints lived in separate collections; however mixing as one collection is what I love most about designing fabric and quilting."
