Gems: Haiku in a Prism custom fabric by Penina

Recently, I received an email asking about Haiku in a Prism, one of the Gems pattern colorways I offer on Spoonflower (a digital fabric printing website).

Based in Malaysia, this buyer was interested in ordering the pattern on upholstery-weight cotton twill, and wanted to know if I was willing to scale it up for the project. Of course I was!

We exchanged a few more emails involving photos of an English/metric ruler and paper printouts of the pattern. We decided to enlarge the repeat from 3×3″ to 11×11″—almost four times the size. Then I made a temporary change to the scale of the fabric on the Spoonflower site (having refined a few details to make sure the bigger shapes would hold up). I waited until she received the shipment before changing it back, just in case there were any issues that required a reprint.

When she got the chairs back from the upholsterer, she was kind enough to send a friendly note and a couple of photos.
