Guest Artist: From Sketch to Color

Isn't this great! Tom, from my Zen Doodle Quilts, sent me this image of a quilt design that he came up with during class in North Carolina at the Cabarrus Guild.

One of the difficulties that I have in translating a sketch or design into fabric is that you have to take it from it's black and white state to color. Adding color changes the entire feel of the design. This can be a real stumbling block, especially if you are in love with the black and white sketch. In Tom's case, he was very successful. Thanks for sharing your work with us Tom!
