Remember these fabrics from Miss G? I had thought that it would be the absolute last fabric that I would find a spark of inspiration in.
I often surprise myself – these bright Floridian prints that are so unlike anything that I gravitate towards were the fabrics that caught my attention when I was trying to decide where to go next while exploring Miss G’s treasure trove.
I had read that Lily Pulitzer often used Key West Hand Print Fabrics as a source for her fashions. On further investigation, I learned the fabrics printed for Lilly Pulitzer, Inc. had the name “Lilly” incorporated into the the design itself.
But of course I just had to know if Miss G’s Key West Hand Print fabrics were Lillies, so the hunt began, and as it turned out, these fabric scraps are ALL Lillies.
Sometimes the Lilly is easy enough to find. Other times not so easy. Then at other times, after days of hair-pulling frustration, I’d find the next Lilly.
I’ve plumb forgotten to mention that the fabric has inspired me to begin a new quilt. The pattern I drew up is based on probably the most famous dress designed by Lily Pulitzer: The Jacqueline Dress.
Can you find the Lilly in the following examples? Here’s a tip – look for the dot on the “i”.
