I *heart* fabric design
It was a really nice surprise when I checked my email Thursday morning and read that my Sew Retro fabric won Spoonflower's Fabric of the Week contest! That makes 5 wins... holy katz, as my husband would say! (Although my Hawaiian quilt design tied with another artist's design, so that's really only a half a win, right?)
This was so much fun to illustrate; it felt like I was channeling the design rather than creating it. Isn't it great when projects come together like that? And why can't they all be so easy?
Then again, part of the fun of art and design IS the challenge.
Anyway, with this most recent win, I'm thinking it's time to send my stuff off to quilting fabric companies and see what happens. Who knows? Maybe I can add "licensed fabric designer" to my resume someday soon!
