The finalists for our Fabric Design Contest have submitted their secondary designs, so while we get them ready for judging, we thought we would share the designs with you and a little bit about the designers. To read the previous three designer bios, click on the following designer names: Sherry Saunders, Virginia Odien, and Sandra Malone.
Introducing Carbonated Creations, designer of Black and White Flower Fun.
Carbonated Creations started showing signs of creativity at a very young age by drawing clowns with more detail than other children her age. She always worked in one or more forms of art and self expression throughout her formative years and college such as drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, digital photo restoration, interior design, jewelry making, scrapbooking, commerical graphics and digital imaging. She discovered the worldwide quilting community while teaching herself to quilt so that she could restore her great great aunt’s handmade quilt that had been passed down to her. She lives in the south where she works as a freelance designer while trying to balance family life and find time for herself and quilting.
Black & White Flower Fun was her self-assigned challenge to step out of her comfort zone and design for a different audience. She wanted something less formal and sophisticated than the current black and white collections out there. She designed it with multiple uses in mind like raw edge and needle turn applique, English paper piecing, clothing, and of course quilting. Her love of quilting and fabric buying, along with the Connecting Thread Fabric Design Contest, has influenced her current creative outlet of fabric design.
