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!
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!


  1. I choose number 1 as false.

    Beautiful fabrics in the Designer Select bundle! Thanks for introducing me to a new designer and for a chance to win.

  2. I'm guessing #3 is false. Beautiful collection, though.Endless possibilities.

  3. I love these guessing games. I'm never right but it's still fun. I'm guessing that number 1 is false. Have a terrific Tuesday

  4. 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 😉

  5. I think #2 is false. (But maybe she used to have one?) The colors in this line make my oldest daughter giggle with delight.

  6. Oosh, you asked me to "think is false", and it's *2 truths & a lie*= so, i think "#3. I just acquired a taxidermy owl" becuz its after the 2 truths ;P

  7. Looking at the even spread of answers this one looks like it is more of a guess than normal so I am going with number 3. I hope that is correct, but if not thanks for the great post, I really enjoyed reading it and looking at the amazing images and the gorgeous fabrics you have chosen.

  8. Well, I think it's very possible your grandma had the club, and I saw an owl salt/pepper set on your blog, so you might really like owls. I'll say number two is false….but maybe you WANT one of them! In that case, I have a car I can sell you!! LOL

  9. My guess is #3 although any could be false. This one was hard! Thanks for the chance to win. The fabrics are luscious!

  10. I am going to have to guess # 3. You have such fantastic taste I am thinking you wouldn't own a dead stuffed animal.

  11. Oh boy, I just love this collection. It is something I would have not thought to put together but I just love it. Thank you for the idea.

    I am guessing #3.

    Thank you

    As for the answer to the question, I have no clue but I'm going to say #2 is false. Thanks so much for the chance to play!

  14. I think (hope) it is statement #3.

    Thanks for the giveaway of these beautiful, vibrant fabrics.

  15. I'm guessing #3. You don't look the type that would like dead stuff hanging on your walls.

  16. I think she *wishes* she had a yellow '57 Chevy Bel Air hardtop. (I know I do!)

    Statement 2 is false.


  17. I think it's no.1! Thanks for the chance to win!


  18. Its got to be #3 surely. Love love this new collection. Makes me want to take a journey to a magical land. Oh well guess Ill just have to admire the beautiful fabric instead.Even the name is romantic!

  19. Hmm, I think #3 is a red herring, so I'm guessting #2 is false but is something you really wish was true, lol!

  20. I love the fabrics. They look delicious. I am guessing #3 is false. A 57 Chevy Bel Air hardtop is my husband's dream car.
