Which Comes First the Fabric or the Idea?

Here's my question- do you first of all have an idea and then seek out the fabric to use, or do you see the fabric first and then the idea comes to you?

What would you do with these gradations?

Uses for Hand Dyed Silk, and Cotton Flannel!

One of the many diverse products made using hand dyed silk from Fabric Designs.com can be seen above.

Deborah Kordecki's web site is called www.colorsofpraise.com. She makes "worship tools" like this beautiful piece. Check it out!

Something else I want to show you is some custom fabric I made for a woman who was making a flannel baby quilt. She was desperate to find peach colored cotton flannel. Not knowing if I did this kind of thing, she simply asked me and I dug around with my sources and found undyed cotton flannel and was able to match her sample perfectly. 

So often doors open for us simply by asking. Speak up! What's the worst that could happen? They say no and you're back to square one? What's the best that could happen? (See below).

Thanks for looking everyone! Let me know if there are things you would like to see on this blog. 

I am still working in my spare time on three large painted panels for The Fat Cat Cafe here in Woodland, CA. I need to buy new brushes to motivate myself to finish them!
