In Alaska native legends, there are many tales of the Raven. He is no ordinary bird and is known as the creator of life. This Raven is known

as the Trickster.

Designed by Alaska artist Judy Walyer.

In honor of Judy's work, $3 from the sale of each pattern will be donated to Alaska Run for Women-supporting breast cancer awareness.

The Trickster Pattern

  • "I try to let the patterns in the fabric do the work for me. The background fabric is tonal and goes from a very dark blue to a pale blue. Almost all the leaves are just one woodland patterned fabric and the Raven's feathers are four different grey-black-purple fuchsia blends. I love using batiks for applique because of the beautiful colors and less fraying on cut edges."
