My Aunt June: The Visual English Alphabet

My Aunt June is Lauren “Kansas City” Hunt, who I got to meet and hang out with at Spring 2010 Quilt Market in Minneapolis. She does a wonderful job taking inventive motifs and rendering them in a rainbow of colors. Her latest print is the Visual English Alphabet, which is actually hand-screenprinted rather than her usual medium of digital printing! It is sold by piece — the 16.75″ x 19.75″ design is centered on a piece of approximately 19″ x 25″ piece of brushed cotton twill, though her Etsy shop. Lauren writes that she double-checked to make sure her letter placement didn’t inadvertently spell anything untoward. That made me laugh.

    I love it! My 3yr old son speaks sign language as his primary way to communicate and we’ve been teaching him his abc’s. This fabric would be perfect for making him something. I love that she even created it! Thanks for sharing it!

    What a fantastic conversational print. But what a shame it only comes in such small pieces as I’d happily make a dress out of that!
