Tropicalism by Odile Bailloeul from Free Spirit Fabrics.
It takes a compnay like Free Spirit to bring us such a bold and innovate collection as Tropicalism. The prints are fun, bright and all mix together. This is Odile’s second collection from Free Spirit and we are thrilled to have it in the shop.
Odile Bailloeul — so how do you pronounce the name of this new designer. I had to ask Google and Google said to pronounce it “Oh-deal Bayou”. Good enough for me.
I don’t think I could descrige her any better than to just
copy the bio that was on the Free Spriti website.
“Odile Bailloeul has created designs since graduating from Arts Appliqués in Paris. Whether it be for paper, decoration, fashion or print ; this gourmet of color loves to bring some joy into our lives ! Since creating her own mark in 2011, she offers fabrics and sewing kits to share her bohemian world with us. Her nomad style takes us traveling at the pleasure of her inspiration. Popular art, world wide folklore, textile craftsmanship, any excuse for this enthusiastic designer! Whether she is working with embroidery, oil painting, fabric or the decoration of her gypsy caravan, she communicates it with passion to give us inspiration for a warm and welcoming way of life, fantastic and poetic.”
Enjoy these great fabrics!!
Let’s just make this easy with a bundle of fat quarters or a bundle of 1/2yds. Either way you have some great fabric and you won’t have to eliminate any as each bundle has 16 pieces, which is the entire collection.
