Dresden Lace River from Second Nature by Anna Maria Horner for the Anna Maria Horner Conservatory Chapter 2
Second Nature, which is part of the Anna Maria Horner Conservatory Chapter 2, is a very intentional approach to design. It only employs two colors per fabric, but as a whole, it creates an enticing spectrum in various scales. This Dresden Lace River print by Anna Maria Horner is absolutely stunning! A sure win in any project.
Even though it only uses 2 colors, the appeal of the prints is as provoking when they stand-alone as it is when they are used alongside the other collections in Conservatory. The opportunity to focus on form with this collection is a breath of fresh air, and a joyful play with Anna Maria’s hand-drawn graphics. Including these beauties in your patchwork, garments, accessories and home goods will become Second Nature.
Anna Maria’s Conservatory is a gathering of beautiful art from uniquely talented artists. Anna Maria’s Conservatory is composed of Anna Maria Horner, Monika Forsberg of London, Arounna Khounnoraj (Bookhou) of Canada, Courtney Cerruti of San Francisco and Nathalie Lete of Paris – renowned artists from diverse corners of the world whose work complements Anna Maria’s timeless and fine art-based approach to design.
“The Conservatory takes the FreeSpirit tradition of gathering incredible artists under one brand a step further by creating collections that offer compelling crossover in styles while maintaining the individual artist’s distinct point of view,” said Anna Maria. “What I know as an artist is, first, it has to be beautiful.”
The idea is the culmination of Anna’s formal training in fine art, self-taught love of arts, crafts and quilting and valuable industry experiences as spokesperson, designer, author, instructor and, most recently, shop owner of Crafts South in Nashville. Her passion for her art is supported by the sales experience of working with customers to compose quilts that strike that one of a kind mix of a number of designers.
“As an artist, that unexpected composition of different fabrics coming together to create beautiful quilts speaks to me. As a retailer, I’ve watched the practice inspire quilters and grow business. This is what I want to share,” said Anna Maria.
