Swan Pattern Available Now

There is something very exciting about seeing one of your patterns made up exactly the way that you can see it in your head.

When I sewed my swan pattern the other week I was just using fabric from my stash. It wasn't the fabrics that I envisioned when I designed the pattern, but it was fine for what I needed- to confirm that my pattern worked.

Although I was thrilled to see that the pattern worked, I was a bit disappointed in the fabrics that I used. Somehow the swan just didn't live up to the image in my mind.

Pretty lucky then that Carin did such a great job of testing the pattern for me. 
Just look what she came up with! 
Did she not manage to capture the swan's elegance perfectly!?!
I love that she made it a black swan, just like the source of my original inspiration. I love that she chose a fabric which gave the feathers and water a texture.

As for my swan, well I really hope that my free motion quilting is up to the job! - I've got plans!

The finished pattern is for a pair of swans.

You can buy my paper pieced Swan Pattern now from my Craftsy Store.
