Anna says about 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. Travelling 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 reimagine it with fresh eyes was the guiding inspiration in Hindsight.
The showy “Guest of Honour” flower now has a sparkling “Centre” 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 Colours”. “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 favourites and contributes to new discoveries in art and patchwork.
