Anna Maria Hindsight
Hindsight is a very joyful look back at my body of work over the last 15 years in fabric design. It is impossible not to mention how much the community of quilting has continued to inspire my work and therefore this collection. Traveling and teaching classes allows me to watch various coveted pieces of fabrics from all points in time come together to create beautiful vignettes. That celebratory mingling as well as my own desire to look back at my art and re-imagine it with fresh eyes was the guiding inspiration in Hindsight.
The showy "Guest of Honor" flower now has a sparkling "Center" and floats among the boisterous "Summer Totem" blooms and branches. "Sinister Swarm" moths invade and dance through the thicket of "Small Gathering". The abstract "Volumes" stack of books gets painted with "True Colors". "Echinacea" breaks its own norm and single fields are dappled with many sunset rich hues. I hope that Hindsight feels like a treasure hunt of favorites and contributes to new discoveries in art and patchwork.
