Alegria!

Pillowcase
Bird Room
Pillows
Selvedge
A BIG box with fabric from my Cloud 9 Fabrics Alegria collection arrived yesterday!
 I immediately made new pillowcases for our bed using the Walkabout fabric.
 I over-dyed the fabric to match my old green quilt from CB2.
It was wonderful to translate my watercolor images onto fabric
but what I had most fun with was designing the selvedge info :-)
Working with Michelle on this collection was an honor & real treat!

I've been reading through your blog after the recent discovery via your quilt fabric arrival. I thought I would send a link to an artist whose works might interest you. I buy from her at the One of a Kind show in Toronto and she too has a fondness for birds it seems. I have no other relation to this artist, just sending along a link I think (if you don't already know of it) might give you a chuckle:

Cori Lee Marvin at Marvindale.ca is the link.
