Move over Princess Catherine! My brand spankin new fabric collection, called Botanika, includes some royal birds. I began this collection a year ago when I was inspired by a trip to San Diego. I spent time at the beautiful Balboa Gardens, walked by incredible cottages in La Jolla and soaked up the beauty of it all. Even the birds seemed happier to be living in such a glorious place. So I began sketching and painting what I gathered in photographs and my imagination.
As of yesterday I only had 8 of the fabrics, but by some sort of miracle (and Christine) I came back from an all day photo shoot to the rest of my fabrics. I hadn't been to the bathroom or eaten all day, but I began running outside to try and get some outdoor photos while it was still light enough. I also received 3 pillows from a couple of the fabrics (Susan, they are gorgeous!)so I was snapping up a storm while doing the potty dance.
Now I've been trying to put something together to show you, but I am having a heck of a time here. And I'm supposed to be packing for Quilt Market. Please forgive me if my debut is not perfect. I'll fix it later, but just had to share. What do you think?
Why is this Meadow colorway stretched and fuzzy? I reloaded it five times , resaved it, yelled at it. Hmm.
