I am pleased to announce my third line of fabrics with RJR Fabrics called “Pollinator.” This line debuted at Fall 2018 Quilt Market and will ship to shops and online providers in March, 2019!
To view swatches of the full line, visit my Commercial Fabric page.
The natural world is beautiful at finding the perfect mechanism for pollination to happen. Bees are perhaps the rock stars of pollination but there are so many others and they are all rather magical. Plants figure out how to attract specific pollinators to do their work for them. The Pollinator fabric line shares a bit of this story, with imaginings of wind, plants, birds and bees. If you look closely you might even spot microscopic imagery of pollen!
As a gardener & cook I am passionate about pollinator conservation; they are such a critical link in our food system. Through the making of this fabric line I want to share this story and hope it becomes part of yours.
I am inspired by the textural beauty found in patterns of natural and man-made environments. I love the tactile experience of working with cloth and I create imagery through the use of dye, paint, and thread on fabric. I like to think of a quilt as having a “2.5-dimensional” surface, which adds a layer of interest that is unique to this medium. I have exhibited internationally and my work is held in both private and corporate collections. I have written and have been featured in numerous books and magazines, produced a workshop DVD, and have curated numerous exhibitions as one-half of Dinner At Eight Artists along with Jamie Fingal.
