Take a scouting trip into the world of the forest floor, where beautiful creepies crawl and decomposers rule. Intricately curated insect collections and the foraging of mushrooms for food in the woods inspired the patterns of Into the Woods.
Grasslands is Sarah’s first collection after moving back to the United States from Brazil. Landing in her hometown, where very little is foreign, her mind has wandered even farther away, to places she’s never been. Grasslands is inspired by tiny savanna flora and the animals that graze them. Prints include bold embroidered florals and a camouflaged safari menagerie, how many animals can you find?
With Sarah’s ever growing love of plants and nature, Terrestrial focuses her thoughts on the smallest details of plants to a large living wall. She loves to see a rigid concrete surface taken over by climbing, creeping, sprouting organisms. Closing in on a mossy tree, imagining the lichen as an embellishment of sequins and stitches on a rough trunk. Terrestrial is inspired by lines and marks, organic and manmade.
Lots of great features in recent UK magazines. Here’s some of the highlights!
The Prismatic Quilt was inspired by the fractal view of an insect. A macro take on a micro vision suitably designed by Michelle Engel Bencsko and pieced and quilted by Linda Spiridon in Sarah Watson’s mesmerizing Biology and Cirrus Solids.
Pardon us as we indulge in a few beauty shots in nature. We couldn’t pick a favorite!
