Q &A

Dana

WILLARD

“...CAN YOU WEAR TACOS TO CHURCH? PRETTY SURE THAT’S A YES. ” 1.Hey Dana! We’re so excited about your new collection Day Trip! Can you tell us all about it? Day Trip was inspired by the many trips our family likes to make--whether here in Texas or driving around the country. The designs capture what we see out the window, the food we like to eat, the animals we spy along the way. We love living in Texas and I hope this fabric makes you want to come visit! 2. What are some things about Texas that made you fall in love with the state and convinced you to make it your home? Oh there is so much to love about Texas---the kind people, the warm weather, the endless swimming holes and rivers, the live music, the tacos and food trucks. It’s all here. We live in Austin and it’s a great central hub to visit the many cities and towns scattered throughout this big state. Just pack up the car with snacks and a swimsuit, and see where the road takes you.

3. Day Trip is filled with fun prints for everyone! From little cars, to tacos and cute florals, what kind of road trip did you envision as you made the collection? This collection is definitely inspired by Austin, Texas and the surrounding hill country. Austin landscape is full of cacti and the famous Texas bluebonnet which blooms every April for a few weeks. It’s officially the state flower and a real sight to see! But Austin, the city, also has a cool urban vibe with tons of food trucks, cool shops, and a vintage-modern-farmhouse-boho-traveling vibe. Is that a term? 4. With every collection that is created, designers always learn a new technique or something new about themselves. Did you learn anything new during the design process of Day Trip? Yes! I learned that I love small-scale prints too. I’ve always been drawn to large-scale shapes (in a wallpaper-like scale) and you get a lot of that in the Blush collection. But with Day Trip I wanted to see if I could do a small “ditzy floral” and it worked! The “Field” print which comes in Summer, Winter, and Autumn colors is one of my favorites. When you look at it from a distance it almost feels abstract and I love that. 5. This is a hard one… What are your top three favorite prints and what do you plan on making with them? That is hard. But I can definitely say:


visit the riverwalk and the Alamo. And if you pass a Buc-ee’s gas station along the way, definitely make a stop. It’s a world in itself. Of course wherever you go, you’ll find amazing BBQ and pop-up food stops.

Cactus Bloom - I want to make everything in this print...skirts, tops, bags, you name it. Picnic Plaid - I’m making a dress for ME! Taco Love - Now I can eat my tacos and wear them too! I’m so happy this print comes in quilting cotton AND in knit. I’ll be making leggings, dresses, and a shirt for me Oh, and maybe a necktie for my husband? Can you wear tacos to church? Pretty sure that’s a yes. 6. Speaking of things to make, can you tell us about the Road Map free quilt pattern that can be downloaded in this lookbook? This is a really fun quilt pattern because it looks different from different angles. From one angle I see lines and rectangles, connecting like a road map. And from another angle I see zigzag lines. And if you sew the “white” part of the quilt with a dark print, you’ll see entirely different shapes. I guess the quilt is like a road trip…..you never know the adventure that awaits. And if you’ve never quilted before this is a great quilt to get you started. 7. Now, back to Texas! For those makers who aren’t from Texas, can you share with us some fun places you love to visit in the big state? Austin, TX! Come here first--and make a few stops at Torchy’s Tacos. I’m sure I’m biased but you could spend weeks in Austin exploring the outdoors and the city. From Austin you can drive an hour north to Waco and visit the famous Magnolia Market from Fixer Upper. Or head two hours south to San Antonio and

8. As an avid traveller and road trip connoisseur, what are some of your tips to having a fun trip with kids (especially when it involves a long drive)? Make regular stops, every few hours. Sometimes it’s a quick 10-minute stop and we all do lunges together, walking to the bathroom--gets the blood moving and it’s a good way to break up the long drives. And we always stop at the random stuff! We were in Arkansas last year and made a point to stop in Alma AR, which claims to be the spinach capital of the world. We saw the Popeye statue in town and laughed about the funny little stop--cause it’s the things you see along the way that make the adventure. 9. It’s always fun to see makers think outside the box when it comes to different collections. What do you challenge makers to create with Day Trip? I would love to see cool home decor stuff with this collection. Along with all the amazing quilts I’m sure you guys will make...I’d love some loud curtains in the Cactus bloom print, and a chair covered in Prickly pear or Bluebonnets. Of course bags and apparel are always exciting and right up my alley. 10. Last but not least, if you had to describe this collection in three words what would they be? Bright. Happy. Now.
