All the designs I do somehow come out as fabric designs. They may start as photos, drawings, embroidery, dye-painted fabrics, batiks or virtual batiks, or even typography, but they all lead to fabrics. Often they are Art Nouveau or William Morris inspired

This design was made from papercuts, a traditional way to do Hawaiian-style quilts. The applique fabric is folded and cut out to create the design. This border pattern is made from two Hawaiian-style papercuts I did years ago. It is available separately as a fabric. See it full-size at http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/541409 The center, with peacock feathers and butterflies, I cut earlier this year - while the power was out for several days in the winter - and decided it would work much better drawn in Illustrator! The wavy lines of the feathers are similar to the echo quilting which is characteristic of Hawaiian quilts. There is a coordinating design with repeating squares and the border pattern, which could be used for pillows. http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/717015 This is a revised version. There is also a dark background version of the center diamond, at http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/735570

Thanks cjldesigns -That's a good idea, and since the center element is a vector drawing, I can stretch it to whatever size. The proportions would work well that way, with a narrower border in comparison. Maybe I'll turn it to diagonal - that would still show lots of the smaller pattern, but allow the center to show more.

Beautiful design. I love the pattern, and it would look fantastic on a really large scale as a quilt on a bed.
Thanks forest&sea and simboko. The colors were limited by those in the Photoshop file for the border; three colors, which print as a marine (turquoise sea) blue, aqua, and off white or white. I particularly like the printed version, even though it didn't look exactly as it does online. A cheerful "sunny" blue combination. I hope to get a fabric image for the border posted later today.
Very nice! I like the center element in combination with the texture of the smaller paper cut pattern. Colors are very relaxing.
This is beautiful! Is that just two or three colours you kept it to? It really works.
