I have been really enjoying watercolor recently. I painted these quilt patterns a few months ago and finally have them all ready to go for sale as digital prints. This one is called Red Quilt.
Here is Blue Patchwork
And Snowball Quilt, which is a classic pattern I have always wanted to try on a real quilt, and someday I will.
This is the first time I have reproduced watercolor digitally, and the results are amazing to me. I seriously can't tell when looking at these prints if it's a real watercolor or not—the colors and subtle gradations are so well rendered. I am using my favorite crazy-expensive rag watercolor style paper to print on (archival and all that) so it has a thickness to it which feels really nice. You can read all the specs for this on the print description.
All 3 are available in my etsy shop.
Okay, getting ready for a birthday around here. Mine. Next week. I am requesting a cake from my family. An Orangesicle Cake. I have named it, but it's up to them to interpret what it will be. I am terribly excited. If you have any recipes (I am thinking orange cake with a marshmallow or 7-minute frosting?) let me know. Maybe a cake with orange marmalade? What I really want is a homemade version of an all-time childhood favorite dessert of mine, which is utterly nasty, I know, but I loved them so much—not the chocolate version but the much less revered Orange Hostess Cupcake.
