There is nothing more exciting to me than to see my artwork reproduced on physical products and this one has been particularly exciting for me. In the fall of last year QT Fabrics created this fabulous fabric collection from my artwork. It is called “Carnivale”. This Carnivale Fabric Collection has truly exceeded all of my expectations! The fabric was produced in October and shipped to stores in November. By January QT Fabrics was already scheduling a second printing to meet the demand for the fabric.
It has been such a joy working with QT Fabrics! Everyone there has been so amazing and such a delight. Creative Manager – Tiffany Meredith Jawor-Smith said, “QT is thrilled with the response to the colorful and vibrant Carnivale collection! Color is a universal language for quilters, and there are so many wonderful stores to be told – we look forward to seeing inspired projects developed and shared for years to come.” I totally agree with Tiffany!
The main design of the collection is a fabulous flowing combination of my whimsical doodle flowers and shapes surrounded by delightful multi-color bubble dots in various sizes. This main design comes in either a black background or white background. This is the most popular design in the collection.
The second most popular design in the collection is the multi-color bubble dot design. Like the main design this bubble dot design comes in either a black background or white background.
There is a total 14 fabric in all in the collection.
The part that I have enjoyed the most about the collection is seeing what everyone is making with the fabric. Here are a few photographs that have been sent to me from others of items they have made with the fabric.
Judi Duncan made these pencil bags (of which I could use for a gillion different things).
Kim Benson made this large bag that would be great for carrying everything you need. Kim has also made a bottle up bag.
And Stacey Maxwell will always have a festive table when she uses her colorful napkins and table runners.
I want to say thank you to each of these ladies for sharing the lovely work with me and giving me permission to share the photographs with you.
The second printing of Carnivale is scheduled to be shipped to stores the middle of April. Hopefully these pictures will give you some ideas of what you can made from the Carnivale Collection.
If you have made something from the Carnivale Fabric Collection that you would like to share with us, we would love to see what you have made. Please leave a photograph in comments below so that we can all enjoy it.
