Introducing Kaleidoscope Lane


Well, here it is … what I’ve spent the last month working on! I’m pleased with it, and I hope you all love it too.



Kaleidoscope Dot

Glazed Tile


Medallion Stripe

Garden Path

So now it’s up to the Connecting Threads staff to decide whether my collection is the one they want to produce and sell. Connecting Threads will be featuring all five of the finalists’ collections on their blog, Notions, in the coming days, and will announce the winner in the next few weeks.

I haven’t seen the other finalists’ collections yet, so I have no idea how mine stacks up, but regardless of what happens, I’m so glad I did this. I learned a lot about designing a complete line of fabric, including many lessons about how to approach the design process next time (if there is one). And since I’m happy with the end result, I feel like it’s a win for me even if my line doesn’t end up being produced. But of course, fingers and toes crossed that it will be!

    Congratulations Lee!!! I absolutely love every single print! Connecting Threads would be crazy not to choose you. And if they don't, may the glory be someone else's to enjoy, b/c this collection deserves to printed. Just gorgeous! 🙂
