A huge thank you to Mark, Donna Koenig and the entire team at Fabric Trends for the wonderful feature! It was a pleasure to work with all of you!
Fabric Trends features the newest fabrics, most of them before they have hit the market. In order to show quilt designs before the fabrics are available, they are featuring digital quilts. I am thrilled that I was asked to design a quilt featuring Wild World! It was a wonderful opportunity for me to share even more my ideas for these fabrics.
I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this project. I worked in Adobe Illustrator to create the quilt. I tried several different quilt layouts, and I tried many, many different fabric combinations. I loved putting the fabrics together, coming up with the blocks, trying out different borders. It was immensely enjoyable work, and you can bet I'll be doing more of this for future collections!
Fabric Trends was also kind enough to do a Designer Profile on me. This was done in the form of a telephone interview with Mark Lipinski. I was instructed to call Mark to set up a time to do the interview and he was ready to do it right when I called--so I didn't even have time to get nervous. We just jumped right in. I had originally hoped for an email interview which would give me more time to think about my answers, but Mark was amazingly easy to talk to. The conversation was so relaxed and comfortable that by the time I hung up the phone, I felt like I had a new best friend!
Thank you, Fabric Trends, from the bottom of my heart!! It means so much to me to have my work showcased in your beautiful magazine!
And if any readers out there decide to make this quilt, you MUST share it with me!
