Quiltcast #34 – Designing Fabric


Posted on April 23rd, by Amy in podcast, Quiltcast. No Comments

While fabric designing newbies, we thought you might like to know more about our approach to fabric design, and how we got here. Join April and I as we share what we know :)

Our process and inspiration – both unique, with similar results in fabric design.

I tend to use and manipulate shapes in Illustrator, starting in black and white, then add the neutral palette.

April sketches, then scans it in to Illustrator, to manipulate the design and add color.

Books we both have used as resources :

A Field Guide to Fabric Design
Mastering the Art of Fabric
Digital Textile Design

How to Enter the World of Textile Design

Spoonflower can be a great tool.

Designing fabric is not a fast process, something to be working toward as you develop your skills.
