Fabric & More

I have always  loved doodling, drawing and creating with colored pens. I have quite a collection of mini art pieces that I have made.  So a couple of them were converted into fabric after I carefully cropped them to make them repeat well.  Since I found out that Spoonflower will now print on Kona cotton again, I had these two printed on Fat Quarters so I could see if I wanted to have yardage printed.
I have made both of them available for sale on Spoonflower in case you just can't live without having some of my fabric for your very own.

I have to say that I love the top one best.  The colors are more saturated and it already looks "quilt like."
The lower one is interesting. I could really see fussy cutting some of the motifs from it.
Here are some of my favorite bits.

I think I would like this fabric more if I had made the image print larger.  However, I think it would be excellent made into a woman's dress.

I have won a couple of things  that I haven't posted.  First up is a cute kit I won from Color Me Quilty.
 You may not be able to read it, but the little quilt says "Gotta Quilt!"   Yeah, perfect for me.

Next up is a lovely collection of Flannel FQ's by Connecting Threads that I won on It's Sew Kiki.
I want to make something for me out of this.  I am thinking a nice lap quilt.  I am just not sure how I will proceed.
However,  I have some other projects lined up first.  Christmas is coming waaay too fast and I have to get Mom's present made.  And I have a baby quilt to make too!  Sometimes it is just too busy. ;-)

Congratulations, winning is good! I like your fabrics, aren't you clever! I think the top one would make a lovely piece for stained glass blocks.
