Original designs

Here are a couple of pictures of my interpretation of coneflowers that I did on fabric for patches
in a wedding shower (? -or baby shower?) quilt.

I was quite pleased and surprised at how well they turned out. Someone suggested that I design fabric so I went to a lecture by a fabric designer. Sounded like way too much work for
me (as I am basically a lazy slug!). But I do enjoy making one-of-a-kind wonders.

I used Pigma 0.1 markers for this drawing with lots of layers to make it dark. They are great for small, fine work. Anything bigger and I would use fabric dyes and paintbrushes. Have fun - try it!
