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.
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.

I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
