Get to know Yelena Bryksenkova, FIGO fabric designer, artist and illustrator

We’re starting a new series where I chat with the fabric designers of the lines we choose for our Stashin’ with Stephanie subscription club each month.

I thought it would be a fun way for you all to get to know the artists creating the beautiful fabrics we ship out each month and that inspire each month’s quilt pattern.

First up is Yelena Bryksenkova, a freelance illustrator who has created work for everything from FabFitFun boxes to children’s books. She works almost exclusively by hand first, only adding finishing touches digitally once the work has been scanned into an editing program. The process is an unusual one in today’s world of digital design.

We talk about the collection, how she got started as an illustrator, how the many places she has lived has influenced her art and how entering the world of fabric design has inspired a newfound love of fabric dying with natural materials.

Celestial is Yelena’s second fabric collection for FIGO Fabrics and it features astrological symbols, shooting stars and constellations in grayscale prints with gold metallic.

It has been very popular and we only have a little bit left. It is completely sold out at FIGO, so we aren’t able to get more. The best way to make sure you get fabrics like this each month, is to join our subscription club, Stashin’ with Stephanie.

Once you join, we’ll ship you 10 fat quarters for $29.99/month, a 17% savings. Plus you get access to our previous Stashin’ with Stephanie patterns for FREE, currently a $200 value, a new FREE pattern inspired by the fabric each month, a 30% off coupon to use on the best selling book, “Fat Quarter Workshop,” plus 25% off additional fabric so you can get enough to make an entire quilt.

And members get first dibs on buying additional fabric. They wiped out almost everything we had this month before we opened sales up to the rest of our customers.
