Trendsetting Textiles: Get Inspired With THE Print for Summer Quilting

Posted by on Jul 13, 2014 in Quilting | Comments


Take a sip out of summer with the ultimate in quilting prints, inspired by the stories and colors of traditional folklore!

This bright and colorful Lily Ashbury print from Moda was inspired by a love and appreciation for traditional folk art. From stunning small floral prints to bold flowers popping off bright white fabric, this collection speaks to the passionate tradition of the crafts, colors and stories that have shaped lives and cultures for generations.

Start creating your own fabric story with the Lily Ashbury Folklore collection from Moda**!

Here’s what Stephanie Carter, the genius designer behind Lily Ashbury, had to say about this amazing collection:

In one of my the prints [in the collection], I explore traditional Mexican textiles made by the Otomi Indians of Hidalgo. These indigenous Mexican embroideries feature colorful plants and animals. I choose to use minimal colors on my recreation of the Otomi print to give it more of a modern feel. I also gave a nod to needlepoint with one of my prints, as well as a hint of Danish folk art florals.

Before I start designing a new group, I spend lots of time scouring the Internet for inspiration. I use an iPad app called Evernote to clip and store my ideas. This research is very important to my work, as I like to start with a strong concept.

Throughout the design process, my work may take many twists and turns but having an idea in mind helps give the final collection a cohesive feel.

I hope you enjoy creating with Folklore as much as I enjoyed designing it!
