A Summer Harvest

Hi, thanks for dropping by to check out my pattern collection. Would really like to have my patterns critiqued so if you feel like leaving a comment for me on how to improve this collection, please feel free.

This collection was inspired by the fruit trees we have in out backyard.  We have an apple and peach tree. In the spring, they would have flowers and I always thought it's pretty neat to see them slowly change into apples and peaches. Summer is also a season our family looks forward to being from the cold midwest. Summer is when our family does a lot of fun stuff like going to the Lynd Farm to pick apples (they have different varieties) in the late summer, going to farmers market and enjoy the freshest fruits and vegetables. Summer Harvest is also sort of a metaphor for my state of mind at the moment which is one of feeling blessed for all the good people and things that have I in my life.

In terms of illustration style, I'm inspired by vintage illustrations when graphics were less digital looking and had more of an organic quality to them.  So I like to use watercolor, create blobs of colors, scan it and use them as textures in Illustrator.  

I ended up with 9 patterns because I wanted to have a focal pattern, a couple of secondary patterns and a few blender patterns or patterns that complement the secondary patterns. Eventually I would like to add a set of tote bags that would show the focal pattern or secondary pattern outside and use the blender patterns for the lining.
