It’s still dusty everywhere! My allergies are begging for a nice soaking rain and in general rainy days are great.

You can make this girl using the Umbrella Girls 2 pattern.
The sky is called Passing Cloud in gray from Cloud 9. It’s mostly sold out online, but check your local fabric shop you might find some there. I used the organic cotton, not the flannel. The grass is from the Modern Batik Collection. Here clothes and skin are scraps of unknown origin.

This couple, part of my Side By Side pattern, can be set in other settings besides winter. Their outfits are appropriate for early spring or fall – they would look great at silhouettes on a sunset background too.

The mountains are still capped in snow – it’s beautiful to see spring chasing the snow away.

This fat tire bike didn’t make the cut when I was designing my pattern. While this makes a cute art quilt, I just wasn’t thrilled with the perspective and there was little room to add fun details like spokes.

My husband changed the tires on our fat tire bikes – they are ready for summer fun, but nonetheless, I do love my snow bike.

I’m often asked, why do you use the text fabrics? The short answer is: I like words and I like visual art – both tell stories. The longer answer is that our skin – every scar, bruise, freckle – tells a story about the life we have lived. The text prints represent those stories.
