Daily Pattern: City love

Finally, I'm posting a much belated Minneapolis pattern.
In the past few years, Minneapolis has ascended on my list of "things I like" to "favorite things" and quite possibly my top ten list. It's difficult. I like a lot of things. I am impressed by this city, though, especially since not long before ascending to favorite things from things I like it was on the "things I dislike" list. Cities are hard.

For my pattern, I decided to make it about some fantastic places in my home within home, Uptown. I could write a paragraph about every single place, but I'll spare you. If you're new to Minneapolis, these are great places to check out! And if you're a native (even possibly a friend), you know why I chose these places :).


And here's a nighttime version:


  1. I like that Old Chicago is in a visual love letter to Minneapolis!

    I miss most of those places I recognize.

  2. Chipotle!? I love the colors and it's awesome, and yes I think this is the best!

  3. Very, very cool! I really love your interpretation. The colors of the "night" version are fantastic.

  4. omg, i *LOVE* and both colorways are fantastic!
