First try at a Quilt As You Go purse as taught by Tara Rebman. She teaches on Craftsy and she is so fun; such a great teacher. Very clear instructions and a bubbly personality that inspires you to go for it! See my cute chipmunk on the tab above.. he lives in the yard and always tries to eat the bird seed in the feeder but the Crisco on the shepherd's hook pole keeps him in line!
American Beauty will be included in the Arts in the Airport Show at Knoxville from October to April. You can read more about the show and see some of the work in past shows at https://www.knoxalliance.com/arts-in-the-airport/
Pinata Fiesta is going to Las Laguna Gallery in Las Lagunas, CA! https://www.facebook.com/LasLagunaGallery/
It will be featured in their Bring Us Your Dead show. I can't wait to see how it looks when all the pieces are installed.
This fiber work is filled with remembrances, with dancing skeletons, pinatas, a dog, a black sheep, jaguar and plentiful birds plus flowers and beading and stitch. I had a blast creating it!
I'm not sure why this pattern is called Less Than Traditional... to me, its way more work than traditional! I had a fit with it, so hard to get the bunchy layers through the sewing machine... I was ready to scream and quit... but its done. I was sure I would never be interested in making another one, but now that it is done, well it is kinda cute... maybe. JUST MAYBE I would make another one.
OK now you know what I have been doing the last two day! These Bendie bags are fun to make, they stand on their own little feet. I love putting surprise color insides in them...
They are perfect for quilting notions, make-up, device cords and junk, nail polish, I think my attachments for the food processor would fit in one! Simple and straightforward pattern by Joan Hawley, Lazy Girl Designs.
My third quilt with this pattern. I love it! it is so sweet especially with the scalloped borders. And this one is the best one yet... it comes with a baby! (actually my great niece, she is the recipient)
I am loving this pattern. It is quick and fun and I love adding the scalloped border. This time I featured this beautiful Boston Terrier fabric I have been hoarding to make something for my friend so now I have finally finished when she is moving away! But at least she has it to take with her and her two Bostons.
I had fun sewing these bright undersea colors. The scalloped border is my first, its not perfect but I love the way it looks. It really adds a special touch.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
