I am so excited for this month’s challenge!! When Michelle and I were at Surtex last month we spoke to a number of brands from markets as varied as accessories, bedding, women’s apparel, quilting fabric, and classroom decor, all of whom were interested in seeing conversational patterns. Animal patterns were a particular standout in terms of what people were looking for, so I thought it would be great to capitalize on that for this month’s Chelsea’s Challenge and encourage Lab members to develop a collection based around animals, birds, or sea creatures.
