2103 New Year celebration Blog Hop: Flying with Emerald Green

January 11, 2013 

 Let's Fly Blog Hop !



Welcome everyone!


You are most likely visiting my blog after viewing 

Annette Plummer's lovely blog from the UK.

Now that you are all warmed up with so much inspiration I hope you will relax and enjoy your time here with me.


I am Dawn of Dawn Rae Conery designs.  I live in Bangor, Maine USA and enjoy designing patterns for textiles as well as creating and designing quilting patterns, painting with watercolors and drawing with pen and ink.


My love affair with color, design and fabric began as a youngster and led to an entrepreneurial dream realized when I opened my retail quilt shops and Bernina sewing machine dealerships,  Cotton Patch Quilts in Maine and then later Sun Valley Quilts in Arizona. Having sold both shops I now have the time and freedom to focus on my design career. Currently I create quilting patterns for Fabri-quilt and Paintbrush Studio USA, a fabric company and also sell a few with an online wholesaler, Quiltwoman.com.  



Living most of the year on a beautiful lake in Maine supplies me with much of my artistic inspiration.  Flowers, trees, critters and sunsets abound with colors and shapes that I love to bring to life in my art.


Emerald green is the perfect color choice for the Pantone color of the year 2013 and I found it joyful to use in these new designs of flying dandelion seeds, dragonflies at night and lush grassy stripes. I hope you enjoy them!


                                Dandelions and Dragonflies




My career goals for this new year are to pursue freelancing and licensing opportunities for textiles, home goods and/or stationary products. 
 I continue to learn and grow as an artist with daily art-ventures using paints, pen and ink and my computer.  With design programs like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator 6 I plan to build my portfolio of designs.  
 I will also create more quilting patterns and fabrics for that booming industry with a focus on a modern simple style. Having sold 3 lines of quilting fabrics in the past I am encouraged to design and license many more.

Building the Dawn Rae Conery Design brand will keep me busy and happily moving forward for a long time.


Please contact me anytime at : dawnraes04401@yahoo.com if you would like to know more about me or my designs.


Thank you so much for taking the time to view my designs and read about my dreams and goals.  I hope our paths cross one day.


I encourage you to visit Licorice Love/Sylvia T. Designs blog for more fun and inspiration!


Thank you so much for curating this awesomeness Rosie Martinez-Dekker!
