FAIRY TIP-TOES


FAIRY TIP-TOES is glorious... I have been working with the collection now for a while.... the large panel is a yard long by 44" wide and it is F. U. N. I designed backing fabrics to match.... never too matchy matchy, the fabrics are a nice compliment to the larger panel. Designing the panels were fine until I realized that all that artwork had to be contained in a maximum # of colors... 16 to be exact... so each unit had to be carefully marked with color chips.... Through the approval process with the mill I questioned my sanity in creating the panels. And if you know textile design, if I didn't like one color in the acquas, if I made that change everything in the panel would change.... yeowsa! But thankfully it worked!
This one I named Meranda.... she's so colorful and pretty. Check out the other two - Ella in soft pinks and Persephone - in violet and soft yellow.
The panels I use in clothing for kids.... use them in dresses - talk about coversation starters! More pics coming.... In my upcoming book I used 'Ella' and created a perfect little top, called 'Annie's Top'... with fun and full frilly sleeves and unexpected collar!
Yummy!
Check out the other panels on tinagivens.com, HERE.

Hi I'm Debby and I've pieced two quilt tops with your Fairy Tip-Toes fabrics and panels. They are so much fun! I hand-quilted the first baby quilt and have pieced another. Great designing.
