Inspired by American and Dutch folk arts

We featured STAMPED by Ellen Luckett Baker in this column last May. Here is her brand-new collection FOLK MODERN. “FOLK MODERN is inspired by the folk art motifs of American and Dutch fork art. I used geometric shapes and bright colors to give the collection a modern feel. The cotton/linen blend of FOLK MODERN is incredibly versatile. I’ve made clothes, pillows, quilts and bags with this fabric.” Baker says. There are six prints in this collection. This time we are introducing three of them.
