I Have My Very Own Personal Designer

Not many people can claim to have their own personal fabric designer but I'm thrilled to be able to say I'm one of the luck few.
Some of you will know that my daughter was studying Fashion and Textile Design at uni, well she finished a couple of months ago and graduated with excellent marks in fact she got full  marks for her designs. I'm so proud of her and now she'll be able to design fabric for me YAYYY. I'll be her number one customer. Everything she designs I like and want to own LOLL

Here are just a couple of designs she brought home for me. They were just sample squares that I put a border on to make them measure 50cm x 50cm and then quilted them.
These would make nice table toppers or even wall hangings. I've already found her a couple of customers for her designs. One wants fabric to make into clothes and the other wants a runner. I want a runner and a topper.

I love the colours.  The design has been printed on a thick satin.

This is the back which is the same for both designs.

This is the second design.

I can't wait for her to print out my fabric so I can make myself a runner and topper. It's great knowing that no one else will have that design anywhere. Something unique to me.

  1. Lucky you Maria!! Congratulations to your talented daughter too! You should be proud of her and she should be proud of herself too. Those fabrics are gorgeous too. They have an India look to least to my eyes, lol! Love all the colors in the fabric too. If it wasn't a fortune for postage I'd buy some of her fabric designs too. But I might go broke paying the postage, lol!!!

  4. I agree with Daryl, you are lucky! Can't wait to see what your fabric will look like.

  5. The fabric designs are beautiful! They are very interesting with that kaleidoscope effect and so stunning colors. I love how the close up pictures show like stamping, or nice texture. Congratulations to both of you!

  6. Those are gorgeous prints - they both look rather batik-y - and the first one has a Hawaiian feel! Congratulations to your daughter - and lucky mom - having a designer "on the payroll" that will probably work for a good meal, LOL!
