Welcome to the colorful world of African print fabric!
From fashion to home decor to quilts and crafts, these bright, vivid designs bring excitement to any project! But what exactly IS an African print, and how do you use them? We answer these questions and more.
Lisa Shepard Stewart of Cultured Expressions discusses the unique appeal of Ankara, along with tips for confidently mixing the colors and bold motifs. She’ll also share a bit about the language of Ankara prints, their cultural significance, and their fascinating international history.
Then, I’ll share my inspiration and creative tips for incorporating these prints into my AfroModern quilting aesthetic. I will also demo my top tips for using African prints to make a very AfroModern Crib Quilt using negative space and half-square triangles.
Lisa and I have two fabulous patterns for you to put your African Print Fabrics to use…a half square quilt pattern and a notepad cover pattern. Our gift to you! Included with your registration!
