While working as representative for Moda Fabrics, Eileen Taylor immersed herself in the quilting industry and dreamed of designing fabric. To turn those dreams into a reality, she teamed with Lynn Hawley Bloomquist, a talented graphic designer and artist who shared Eileen’s vision. Since Pinecone Lodge debuted in 1998, they have created more than 60 collections for Moda featuring a Northwoods theme.
The niche suits these Minnesota women well as both take inspiration from the natural beauty of their home state. The lacy pattern of leaves made by insects chewing, the colors of a sunset over a beautiful lake and the movement of water bugs dancing in reflections on the water have all found their way into Holly Taylor designs.
