Hello happy quilters! Our Jolly Jabber special guest today is Melody Miller. She’s the creative director and founding designer of Cotton + Steel. With her pink locks and dazzling smile, Melody is not new to the design world. She previously designed the Ruby Star fabric lines for Kokka. We got a chance to talk to her about her new venture, Cotton + Steel and her Mustang Collection.
Q: Tell us about your collection. What were you inspired by?
A: My collection Mustang was inspired by a wide variety of things. 2014 is the year of the horse, and the horse prints are the first time I’ve ever put animals in my fabric designs. I was very inspired by the look of vintage 3D photographs, and wanted to borrow a little of double-image overlapping color for the horses. Many of the other motifs were nods to my previous collections, although re-scaled and re-imagined for my first collection on quilting cotton.
