A Blooming Bunch
By Maureen McCormick
Rummaging around flea markets is definitely one of my all-time favourite activities. Sometimes you get lucky, and the hunt yields something truly priceless.... like this 1930s vintage quilt. It was calling my name!
There are so many perfect prints that needed to be brought back to life after almost 100 years with a bit of Fig Tree style. I want to introduce them to you as Figs & Shirtings – prints that make you think of grandma’s aprons, laundry hanging on the line, vintage men’s pyjamas, and flour sacks. We’ve added a few new introductions for a fabulous "fresh vintage" palette and collection.
Designer, actress. Home-renovator, gardener, crafter and quilter, Maureen McCormick is a maker and creative spirit whose love of retro style infuses her fabrics. While you might know her from her years as Marcia Brady on The Brady Bunch, she grew up loving quilts and the family connections they represent. A Blooming Bunch colours funky flowers and prints with an updated-retro palette to create a collection that has a distinctively modern and kind of groovy feel.
"Here's my story... what I love about the 70s style is that it feels very chic, fun, happy, flowery and breezy, and it puts a smile on my face. It makes us feel good because it takes us back to a simpler time, to the simple pleasures near and dear to my heart. From the colours of the 70s to the fashion, music and prints, I love it all. And I'm so happy to bring A Blooming Bunch to all of you "of lovely people"!
