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.
These are chickpea noodles. Cooked ones....
This is the box they come in....... They are nasty, so note to self... Do Not Buy these again! They taste like a mixture between mush and clay. Just AWFUL texture!!!!!!!!! You are WARNED!!!!!!!!!
Every year Studio Art Quilt Associates holds a benefit Auction to raise money for our guild and they request entries from members; each one is 12 x 12 inches. This is my entry, the muse is struggling against time to meet a deadline, a perfect idea for me. I transferred this old black and white photo to silk for the starting point and added beading and stitch to finish out the piecework. Last year they earned around $70,000.00 from the sales.

Gorgeous May day and some pictures of alphabet work in quilts. Had lots of fun adding these to a round robin, this is the last layer and its hard to see what could be added and make this already great project better!
Learned about this bib from Shabby Fabrics... its so cute! and so easy to make that I had to put the tutorial under my "how-to's". Check it out if you need a present for a messy little eater! She uses bias binding and I did not have any of it so I just made my own - easy enough if you are a quilter. Love that the bib covers the clothes, is reversible, and has a giant crumb pocket to catch the rain of cookies and cheerios. And the cute little sleeves are so adorable.
View from the back seeing how the cute little sleeves curve over.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
