I start my blogging year with a new fabric design to enter into this weeks Spoonflower contest.
The criteria was to produce a yard of fabric with 4 coordinating fat quarters, any subject matter you like but one section had to be stripes and one spots.
I decided to go with one of my existing vintage fabric designs which you may recognise from older posts, it's the one in the top left which is a collage I did with old greeting cards and postcards.
The 3 other quadrants are new. We have another collage in the bottom right which I've done using my stamp collection, some postcards and old book covers. The spots fabric has a scan in each spot of an embroidered piece of vintage linen and the stripey fabric is simply a seaside stripe picking out colours from the collages.
