Description

In April of 2010, Heather Ross was designing for Kokka fabrics and she announced her 2nd part of her Far Far Away series. Just like the 1st part of the series, the 2nd part had great fairy tale characters but this time it was introducing new characters like Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, and the Owl singing to the Pussy Cat. It was printed on a linen with a natural color.

After more than a decade in New York City, Heather recently moved with her family (and small herd of rescue animals) to Forestburgh, New York, a very small town in the Southern Catskills. Forestburgh might be small, but it has all of the things that she feels are important: a general store that serves up friendship, excellent cookies, and a good IPA, a volunteer fire department (that's the way you know that you are among good people) and a dependable rope swing over clean, clear water.

<pThe artwork in this collection was created by hand, during the long days of Spring, 2020. I had moved with my family to the Catskill Mountains and was recovering from covid. I had not yet shut my studio in Manhattan, thinking that I would return imminently, and had none of my digital drawing tools or equipment with me.

I had been considering the idea of creating a fabric collection with hand inked and painted artwork for some time. I was interested in the idea that advances in digitally printed fabric meant that I was not limited to working with solid masses of color. Plot twist! Technology was giving me the opportunity to work by hand!---Heather Ross>Prints in this collection are inspired by Heather's daily life in Forestburgh: the pair of fawns that frequent the woods surrounding her studio, the apple trees that mark long ago homesteads, and the thick carpet of clover that makes for excellent barefoot afternoons wandering her own unkempt gardens. A bit more serious than many of her past collections, Forestburgh includes moody, earthy colors punctuated with bright greens and yellows. 27 designs in three colorways provide ample options for quilts, bedding, and much much more.
