Boro is a style of patchwork, through it is less about a craft or technique than a way to salvage textiles using scraps. The farming classes of Japan would mend torn clothing, futon covers and other textiles using rough running stitches out of economic necessity and the scarcity of cotton cloth.

Nuno is Japanese for cloth. Cloth or fabric brings us back around to beautiful design and “slow” cloth such as shibori, sashiki, boro and indigo. These fabrics are all created over time with an attention to detail. And they all work together to make beautiful items to wear, decorate our homes and make quilts to keep us and our families warm.

When I was a child, June was a special month. My mom would wake my sisters and I up at the crack of dawn to head to the strawberry patch so we could pick quarts and quarts of berries that we’d bring home and turn into various strawberry delights. Of course, one of those delights was strawberry jam!
Bursting with beautiful florals, summery ginghams, polka dots, and stripes, nothing could be sweeter than some of my Strawberry Jam collection!

Susanna’s Scraps was inspired by mid-century antique quilts in my collection and by my great-great-great aunt who left Kentucky to join family in Texas in 1857. Mary Susanna Lunsford was 16 and kept a diary during the journey with her sister, two brothers and her mother, my great-great-great-grandmother, Catherine Mathews Lunsford. Journal entries note time together sewing and quilting with her mother and sister. Can you just imagine all the fabric lovingly stitched into garments and quilts for their families, and the splendid bag of scraps each accumulated?!

Sweet Pea & Lily combines purples, greens, pinks and grays in a mix of sweetness and royalty. The purple hues range from cool to warm shades. There is something dramatic about the mixture and play of deep purple with lavender and the warmth of pinks and the lively plum. The crisp greens of leaves and the little light pops of creamy Lily of the Valley buds complete the garden.

A walk through her rustic yard was to know her heart. A profusion of flowers and raspberry bushes laden with sweet fruit drew butterflies, filling the garden with color. In the evening, we would fall asleep watching a tangerine sky go dark, then awaken to diamond-dust sunbeams dancing across the room.
Lollipop Garden is a scrapbook for those lovely days. Vanessa

Our youngest son Henry had a fleeting obsession with origami, patiently teaching himself how to fold all manner of things. Whilst our house filled with pretty papers and folded creatures, I visited the Japanese galleries at the British Museum taking notes and drawing in my sketchbook as I went along. The idea for an origami fabric collection came to me on the train home, and here it is. – Janet Clare

Many of the quilts found in Christopher Wilson-Tate’s forty years of collecting antique quilts have come from Sussex, a historic county on the southern coast bordering the English Channel. The prints date to 1780 and 1800, and have been carefully reproduced in color and scale, then named for castles and parishes in Sussex.
