Can You Have Line of One?

In today’s world of affordable printing technologies you may have noticed that many famous quilters reproduce their fabric designs or quilt images in non-fabric formats. For example, the cover of the notebook at left is a print from Kate Spain’s Terrain fabric line, and Jean Wells is the artist whose quilt is printed on this incredibly useful tote (below). Now you can add my name to the list of quilters who are using images of their work in non-quilty ways.

Like many others I own a smart phone. [Stay with me. You’ll see the relevance very soon.] Since Butterfingers is almost my middle name, I use a hard case to protect my phone during its many falls to earth. After the last crash the integrity of the case was compromised and I took to the internet looking for a replacement.

There I found an online shop that will put “your photo here”. Did I supply a photo of DD or DH? No. I uploaded a picture of my latest mug rug.

Now I have my own product line with a print of a Suzanna quilt. It’s pretty cool to be reminded of quilting completely out of the blue each time I dig my phone out of my purse. Which is at least 10 times a day.
