I am so proud to announce my VERY FIRST fabric collection, ‘Just Imagine’, by Sweet Melody Designs, for Shannon Fabrics! I just debuted the Just Imagine collection at spring quilt market 2016.

Just Imagine nursery by Sweet Melody Designs for Shannon Fabrics

At Sweet Melody Designs, I am most inspired by my two young children and I started drawing because of them and the desire for my little ones to have a cute nursery. I love creating things that are “nursery-worthy.”  You can find me at Sweet Melody Designs, an online shop for custom nursery art.  I started designing nursery art and now I’m happy to say that I have designed my first fabric collection for Shannon Fabrics!

Here are some images of my collection in the Shannon Fabrics booth at quilt market:

So, a little bit about my very first fabric collection.  Just Imagine is a new collection of whimsical characters, some of which you’ll also find in my art prints.  The designs are simplistic yet unique and add the perfect adorable touch to a nursery.  There are elephants dreaming on the moon, woodland animals in hot air balloons, animal ballerinas, along with arrows and shooting stars – all with my whimsical touch.

My designs are featured on Cuddle®: There’s Big Reader, Dream Big, Let’s Explore and Tutu Cute…

One of my favorites is Dream Big Cuddle Blush
