Hotel Frederiksted was a hotel my father owned on the other side of the island of St. Croix. We loved going to greet the ships and be awestruck by their size. Souvenirs and the local colors beckoned the tourists. Here, repeated from the depth of the ocean blues to the pinkish orange sunsets is my interpretation of this sacred time in my life.
Lucky Girl alludes to the lens through which Jennifer grew up viewing the world. Jennifer’s formative years in the Virgin Islands are a memory of sea glass greens, ocean blues, and coral pinks. This palette comprises the time-worn quality that Lucky Girl embodies.

I only wish your senses could taste the salty air and the warmth on your skin. May Lucky Girl be your touchstone to all of those sensory pleasures."

Nostalgia has a whisper quality that is uncharacteristic of Sis Boom while still embracing pops of color that allude to her earlier fabric collections for FreeSpirit. Confident and robust, Nostalgia has a very feminine painterly quality that is soft and warm. The Harlequin pattern is perfect for creating the graphic quality found in modern quilting and for using as a quilt border. It also creates great contrast with the orb quality of the other designs in the collection. Nostalgia is a symphony of Sis Boom-style with pinks, greens, blues and golds. And, oh, the florals! Those florals with a faded old world sensibility that are sun-kissed and ready to party! You’ll find all the patterns are perfect for your vintage-infused interiors and vintage-infused brands. This collection is romantic and happy – just the way you like it.
