Designer Select: Lily Ashbury



The Fat Quarter Shop and Stephanie Carter of Lily Ashbury have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Stephanie has specially selected 12 prints from her Tradewinds collection along with 3 coordinating Bella Solids for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.




Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: It's all about the color for me. As we move into Spring I really love the freshness of a high key turquoise paired with rich red; it just pops in the best way. I also added pink and lime green for a touch of warmth and slightly more subdued options.




Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection, not including any of the fabric designs!
A:
1. Wanderlust
2. Bazaar
3. Exotic





*2 Truths and a Lie*
1. My Grandmother, Catherine, used to host a sewing club called "The Stitch and Chatter"
2. I own a yellow '57 Chevy Bel Air hardtop
3. I just acquired a taxidermy owl

One of the 3 statements is false. Comment on this post telling me which statement you think is false. Answer correctly and you have a chance to win a Lily Ashbury's Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle!

You have exactly one week from the post date.
Good Luck!

Sigh..I'm going to guess #2 is false, although it's pretty specific for me to think it's false. Since she's from generations of crafters I would think #1 would make sense, and who doesn't love a quirky dead owl so I'd hope #3 is true ;)
