Updated with pictures of fabric swatches!
One of the bigger projects on my 2012 “To Do” list is done!
I shared this picture through social networks just as the Easter holiday weekend was starting and said I’d have an announcement about it this week:
That’s a sample view of the black and white floral fabric, and there’s also an abstract design inspired by feathers.
Yes, I said I would do a (singular) design this year, but it turned into two before I was finished.
Spoonflower has quite a few options for fabric with varying prices. If you’d like to test a piece for quality before committing to a larger purchase, you can order a small test swatch for $5.00. I’ve ordered a test swatch from them before. It’s an 8 inch X 8 inch swatch, which isn’t big enough to make much from but does allow you to see how things print and even run it through the wash and put it under an iron.
Both designs were done with quilters in mind, and one of the fabric options is Kona brand cotton. I can imagine a lot of uses for the floral design, though, and I’m sure someone more creative with fabric than I am could come up with a whole list of projects for the feathery design!
You can find the black and white flowers here, and the abstract feathery fabric here on Spoonflower.
My fabric swatches arrived in the mail today, so I’m updating this post to add pictures of the designs printed on fabric. I chose the Kona brand Premium Quilting Weight Cotton for my swatches. I think the photos give a decent view of how smooth the lines print, but the lighting and my camera make the color just a little off. The fabric is pure white. The black lines aren’t jet black, but they do not look what I would call “faded” at all. It’s more like a soft black that doesn’t jump out at you too much but is definitely black. I’d say you could put this fabric in a project with other fabrics without it dominating everything, nor would it look faded and “blah”. As the artist, I am very pleased with the results! The feathery design especially looks even better on the fabric than on the website.
