This week the Spoonflower challenge was for a room specific wallpaper. I saw flowers. An abundance of flowers. I used my 30-Day Creative Gathering palette. When I thought I was done, something, was a little off. I decided to add a touch of warmth with yellow blooms.

Maybe I went a little berserk, but I am very happy with this design. I re-drew most of the blooms. I gave them wider borders to replace minute imperfections. I also gave them new centers. I intended to give the blue center a pattern. Dots or plaid. But I was right up to the deadline, and just spaced it.

What do you think? Pattern or plain? Plaid, or? Maybe there is already enough going on. I look forward to hearing your ideas. 🙂 Voting is open now, until the 16th.

The smallest flower is a thought,
a life answering to some feature of the Great Whole,
of whom they have a persistent intuition.
Honore de Balzac

This collection is huge, you’re right. 3 colorways, 4 patterns, with 2 versions each. With or without the linen effect. A true fabric collection is made of several, completely different, complimentary pattens. With different subjects and in various scales.

Often, when I design, I am thinking of quilting. The parts of a quilt. The coordinating fabrics and how they work as the main design, as trim and as filler.

In addition, I can also take each of these patterns, and scale them down. Make petite versions. Fortunately, Spoonflower makes it very easy to do this.

How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold?
Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root,
and in that freedom bold.
William Wordsworth

    This pattern is signature Sheila sweet, with an overall appealing sense of simplicity but having subtle complexity embedded in it. It evokes memories of when my mom needed her 4-girls-born-within-5.5-years to take a daily nap everyday whether they slept or not—as the oldest, and most often NOT sleeping during naptime, I would have entertained myself happily with this pattern on the wall or in a quilt. Well done!

      I love your description, Dotty. Wow! I done good! Haha 🙂 Thank you, for showing me through your eyes. 🙂 I love your story!
      Reminded me of having to take naps in the basement at my Aunt Gloria’s before we could swim in her pool. Always after lunch, with the story
      that if you swim right after eating, you would get cramps. As one of the “elder” cousins, I rarely slept, and often had to find
      something to keep myself quietly occupied. LOL 🙂


Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll take a minute and say hello. Always great to hear from you!
