Introducing: Acute Stripe in Fruit Pie!

I started shopping around online this weekend for fabrics to use in the Colette Patterns Fall Palette Challenge I am participating in. I found lots of prints in my color range that I might use, but my mind kept coming back to the Acute Stripe design I recently uploaded onto Spoonflower. I really wanted to create a color way of Acute Stripe so that I could use it to make a blouse in my fall wardrobe! So, I took a little time out and this is what I came up with...

You can see in the image on the right that I also I updated the scale of the design so that it is now more appropriate for use on apparel. In the larger scale, the triangles are each about 5.5" long which is really quite big and would work best for projects like pillows, upholstery, or draperies. In the new smaller scale, the triangles are about 1.5" long which makes the pattern more usable for clothing, quilting, or smaller craft projects.

I might end up creating a "medium" size somewhere between the two - just to explore the possibilities of the design. The scale of a print can dramatically alter how it reads visually.

The smaller version of Acute Stripe has been added for all of the color ways I had already uploaded. You can see them all on
my Spoonflower profile!
