Happy Star green

Happy Star green

Happy Star started out as an American quilting design. I found this amazing circle design and painted my version. I liked it but I thought it looked a bit hard and complicated. I took one very small section of the design and started to play around with the placement. The hand painted rendering is what adds the charm, it isn’t computer generated and too accurate so it still has the character. My theory for creating fabric collections is you start with a show stopper fabric then add in a stripe, a spot and a medium scale fabric, this combination always works well together. I try to design collections so you could use all the corresponding fabrics in the room scheme. Most people just buy one fabric for the room which might just be for the curtains or blinds. Really you need to be buying and thinking about fabric for the cushions, headboard, valance and upholstery. I haven’t really followed my theory with Happy Star because it is a mix of a spot and a stripe. The scale is medium to small so it is easy to use almost anywhere in a room scheme.
