Landscapes times Three


I got the Fassett backing behind me and it feels good to know that project is moving along. Now all it needs is quilting and binding...LOL...just...

New project for AIR (due Aug 9 Yipes !...)is a three part landscape. This is an in- process photo as I am checking color distribution and balance and how the three pieces talk to each other. So far. I like what they are saying...I am still messing with mountains and several major elements that I am creating...

A New Challenge


Today's struggle is finishing the back of a workshop quilt I started in a Kaffe Fassett class. I need to make the backing....but since I don't feel like its MY QUILT...I am having a problem putting the time in it...It's a fun quilt and I like the colors....it just doesn't feel like somthing I designed. I would rather be working on a totally new piece and creating something interesting. If I continue down this path, there could be an ugly accumulation of UFO's in my closet....

Leaf Ladies


What happen to the intent to post at least every week? Some how life gets in the way and good intentions pave the...well you know the rest....

This is my most recent art quilt, completed last April. I designed it for the local quilt competition. It is the most satisfying of all my Art Quilts todate. It shows the Leaf Ladies on the special night each year when they come out to dress the trees.....I think this thought so inspired me, that I am working on a childrens book to share this fairytale....maybe with my my smallest grandchildren who do not believe in fairies or magic....
