Here’s an update on the printed piece started during a quilting retreat in Healdsburg. I finished it today and titled it Rain Dance.
I was inspired to create a California themed linoleum block print on a background pieced from yellow and white scraps (more here). The colors and silhouetted dry seedpods represent our current too dry weather in California. I accented the printed background texture with metallic threads to represent rain.
