I’m lucky to live in rural Virginia surrounded by local farms and orchards where farmers grow a wide variety of sunkissed fruits. This collection was inspired by a visit to Monticello, the central Virginia home of Thomas Jefferson where an orchard of 1000+ fruit trees fill the surrounding fields. The fruits included everything from pomegranates and apricots, to strawberries and tangerines. The patterns in this collection capture the warmth and plenty of the summer fruit harvests in Virginia.
