Dream Big....

One of my ultimate goals/dreams in life has for several years been the goal of becoming a fabric designer. This year my husband and I have set some pretty hefty goals for ourselves and our family. We wrote them down and hung them on our bathroom wall, somewhere where we'd see them every day and and not lose sight of what we wanted to accomplish. 
One of my goals is to learn to design fabric on my computer. Right away I signed up for and started taking some design classes. I'm loving spending my free time creating in a way that I have never been able to before. :)
This week's assignment in my design class was to design a scarf. I don't wear scarves so for some reason this seemed totally out of my element. But, I had fun with it. 
I designed 2 different scarves. 

Don't judge me too harshly, I'm still learning. :)

  12. Good luck! I think you have a serious leg up being a quilter from a family of quilters. I can tell from a fabric line if the designer doesn't really quilt. They never seem to think about having a cool binding print, having a fun backing, and mixing up the values/scales enough. The people who actually quilt make THE BEST fabric lines!
