As any reader of this blog will know, I am a great fan of St Judes fabrics and when I was browsing their website this evening, I was thrilled to see this charming new fabric from designer Ellie Curtis. A quote from her explains the inspiration and I copied it below (with thanks to St Judes and Ellie Curtis) as I thought it gave such a delightful background to the design.
“For Forest Jig I wanted to design something light and jolly and full of movement; I took inspiration from the swing dance classes which I was attending, an ancient Egyptian wallpainting full of lush foliage, a dance scene in the 1953 film Roman Holiday where couples danced in a plaza strung up with lanterns, and botanical gardens. “
The fabric is available in 4 different colourways and can be purchased directly from St Judes.
