Anybody else sick of winter? I know I am! I decided to beat the winter blues by delving into some fun floral patterns. I originally designed Dandelion Fields as a single repeat pattern back in 2017. It’s actually the first repeat pattern that I designed and is responsible for this obsession. I wanted to turn this pattern from a solo piece into a collection, and boy did I over deliver. (Typical, right?)
Presenting the Dandelion Fields Surface Pattern Collection by Calee Cecconi
The Dandelion Fields pattern collection includes 9 patterns inspired by the gorgeous gardens in my neighborhood. I designed the patterns in MULTIPLE colorways: Fall basic (8 colors), Spring basic (8 colors), Fall 2-color (8 colors), Spring 2-color (8 colors), and 12 full-color colorways. So that’s like 700+ pattern swatches… (Did I mention I overdo things?)
I wanted to design a basic option for each set of fall and spring colors because I know that quilters like to use basics to bolster their bolder patterns. I have a hard time finding stuff like this I like so I thought I would design my own.
I also love using simple two-color fabrics in my own patchwork, so I decided to create some of those as well.
(All the colors!) Colorways
I discovered the “recolor art” tool in Illustrator while designing this collection and I really, really loved playing with it. I ended up with way more options than just these 12, but these were the ones I liked the best.
Where to Purchase Dandelion Fields?
Where can I buy stuff covered with these beautiful patterns?
The short answer: nowhere yet!
I want to share my work with you but I haven’t figured out licensing, so for now this pattern isn’t for sale. Eventually it will be, but I don’t want to hurt my chances at licensing this pattern by dumping it on products to sell right now. I can personally produce some things without putting stuff up for sale, so if you want something specific, you can ask!=
