Avocados on Stripes :: Repeat Pattern

With two beautiful avocados in my kitchen just begging to be transformed into guacamole, I thought I'd draw their portraits first. The result: this big and bold half-drop repeat pattern atop chili-pepper red stripes. Yum, let's eat!

This new pattern makes its debut in the Year of the Rabbit. Surrounded by his favorite treat, sweet little bunny keeps his eye on some fluttering pink butterflies. When I received the fresh-looking sample fabric (quilting weight; middle pic) I immediately envisioned a cute comforter or sweet curtains for a child's playroom or bedroom. Original illustrations were first hand-drawn, then carved (see lower pic), printed, and scanned. Purchase any weight fabric here.
