Patter Design Workshop - 3 Focus Prints in 3 Weeks!

Hi my name is Deane!  I am a quilt store owner and pattern designer.  I have been in the quilting industry for over 20 years now and my passion is fabric.  I just started learning how to create my designs in illustrator thanks to Bonnie and these wonderful classes.  This challenge is what I need to push me further!!

My first collection is Vintage Berries:

I love everything vintage. I collect scales and collanders and every kitchen gadget I can find!  This collection is inspired by my Gramma.  Aprons and jars and jams of all kinds.  Strawberry and raspberry being my favorite.

10 words:  berries, jars, collander, apron, vintage, sweet, sugar, flowers, ripe, fresh, preserves, scales...

here are a few of my sketches:

My second collection is Honey:

This collection is inspired from the memory I have of eating toast and honey with my Gramma.  I can still taste the sweet, rich, creaminess and feel the love and joy of those days spent in her kitchen.

10 words: beehive, spring, flowers, jars, sweet, lace, wings, kitchen breeze, bees, buzzing, dahlias and cosmos...

here are a few of my sketches:

My third collection is called Fly

13f3aa05

This one is very personal to me.  I am newly divorced.  I lived on a farm for over 22 years and my yard and gardens were my pride and joy.  Since moving into the city, and into a newly developed area I have found that the one thing I miss the most are the birds.  Waking up to their sweet song.  I miss that.  They will come find me again but for now I'll draw them!

10 words:  birds, butterflies, wings, nest, breeze, flowy, wild, ferns, leaves, flowers, scattered, feathers...
