Spoonflower

I recently found Spoonflower.com .  If you haven't heard of it, they custom print fabric.  They also have weekly design contests.  I was inspired by the Hand Drawn contest in early May.  I didn't win, but 42nd out of 500 isn't too bad for my first design.  Have a look at some of the great designs at http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/136   . You can also find my designs under the screen name Neetz.
 
I ordered a sampler of my designs to check the colours and I'm very happy with the ones on the right, but I had pictured the ones on the left as much smaller scale.  It's pretty exciting to get this.  Now, to decide what to do with the samples.

Peek!

Here's a peek at what I worked on last week, with help from Mom.  (I love having Mom around)

We also spent a couple hours at the local quilt show on the weekend.  There are some fantastic artists around here.  We marvelled at the beautiful quilts and handwork that we saw.
