Remember this woman? Our intern, Danielle? Sound the trumpets because she's now our first official Spoonflower hire! Woo-hoo! I can't tell you all how nice it is to have a female around here who doesn't throw temper tantrums or need to be plied with pb&j sandwiches and goldfish crackers to be happy. Oh, and she's also really nice to talk to about sewing, design, fabric, and the like. We're so glad to have you here more often now, Danielle!
Before we ship out all the fabrics that Danielle has been printing this week, I just wanted to show you all another lovely cheater quilt design. It's from one of our users, Betsy Childs, who saw Angry Chicken's cheater quilt and was inspired to create her own. It printed up beautifully and Betsy says that this is the first time she's tried anything like this. I, for one, am very impressed! The imagery she used in some of her squares reminded me of old books we had around the house when I was a kid. I've seen similar fairy tale-related public domain images here and there on the web and found them appealing, but wasn't sure how I might use them in a crafting context. Now I know!
