Harriet Hargraves' Inspiration for SOFTLY SPOKEN...

Harriet's first collection for Marcus, debuts online in May. It includes beautifully scaled coordinates in terracotta, blush and aqua tones with neutral accents. The line was inspired by a medallion quilt from Virginia, circa 1820-1840. The quilt's owner, Pam Kay of San Diego, CA, shared it with Harriet to reproduce for Volume 5 of the best-selling Quilter's Academy series, co-authored by Harriet and her daughter Carrie. The quilt featured many prints that Harriet had never seen before, in a delightful and unusual blue and pink color palette.

SOFTLY SPOKEN echoes the elegant look of the quilt by offering many of the elements of the original fabrics, with print reproduced as accurately as possible.
