Message me for resizing designs or colors changes and turning designs 90 degrees to better use the fabric. I share an interest in fabric design with my sister ArtbyJaneWalker . I'm a quilter and have a love of fabric. I can set up photos for pillows.

Description:

crystal bird 4 This was one of my early contest entries before I learned to tile. That is why it is mirrored. It was based on a crystal bird ornament.

khowardquilts says: No fear of that, I'm addicted. Even though I'm a quilter, most of my designs aren't practical. I have 11 pages of designs on my profile! Those are the ones I liked best. Since I do most of my color changes here at Spoonflower, my designs with all the variations total over 700! I have just slowed down some lately. My samples are in the mail!

There is no issue with the design just the placement of the design (which causes a lot of fabric waste for most things). Your piece works with a couple different repeats mirrored and half-brick work. The others work if you don't mind a small blank border. Don't sell yourself short. I don't have any training either but I'm not going to stop designing.

khowardquilts says: I think I specified mirrored, because it wouldn't tile OK. I think it was mirrored in the contest, but it doesn't seem to come up that way now. As an amateur, I probably should leave designing to those with more training. I've only had art class in high school and some drafting in college (by hand). I just used a photo that I already had, to see what I could come up with.
