Fabric samples & their originals...


My original watercolor next to the matching patterns~

The fabric samples from Red Rooster Fabrics arrived!
The portfolio with the program was fantastic to receive...
To hold the gorgeous quality fabric~
Joy!!!


My original butterflies... and the fabric they designed!


My stamp originals...


My flying feathered friend original...


Started drawing on postcard backs almost 30 years ago!
Who knew I would be painting on them?


Who knew the fabric would be this stunning?!
Red Rooster, did.


I love receiving samples of my work!
For all the nights I'm in my studio until 2am...
Working on fast deadlines...
Holding the finished piece is the best payment!


We had beautiful butterflies this summer!
Not sure if it was the summer heat or that I spot watered
my flowers through the drought?
Delicate garden friends that I will research and paint when snow flies and
I need a reminder of the warmth~

Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!
Thank you for sharing my journey~

Hi Michelle,

These fabrics based on your work are really beautiful. I can envision all kinds of lovely things people could create from them. The originals next to the fabric is interesting to see and they did a lovely job of representing/reproducing your work.

Thanks for sharing and I will watch for the fabric in the shops!

Red Rooster Fabrics has a link for where to buy/stores on their site. It goes by state... they have so many retailers! The fabric feels so nice!

Hi Michelle - so glad you are now a "Rooster"!!! One of these days you'll have to make a trip to Quilt Market and we can actually meet in person!

What a fantastic journey! Bringing all those paintings together as a collection of fabrics must be thrilling. I wonder what you will make with them now?
