More Mystery Fiber


While cleaning my studio, I came across this mystery fiber which is great on these Valentine's Post Cards. It does look a bit like cross stitch fabric, however it is buckram that is painted with a color wash.

Mystery Fiber

Fiber, fun stitches and a mystery fiber
for the purple heart on the yellow post card.
Any guesses as to what is the fiber??

"Winter" Quilt Contest



Here's my entry for the Quilting Gallery Contest.
Votes must be by Sun PM.
It's completely hand pieced and quilted.
Even the tiny raccoon is pieced
which I will NEVER do again!

Room On The Shelf

Hubby suggested some "blank" spots on the "shelf"
so that the remaining canning jars
could be incorporated into this child sized quilt top.
Isn't he smart!

Old Canning Jars


A few years ago, this fun pattern was created along with a group of quilters where we each made several of a fabric and exchanged them to have a fun selection.
This is just 8 that didn't make it into the child sized quilt that will be shown soon.

In Honor Of Joy

Auditions


These three ginkgo leaf options are being auditioned for this piece. Option #1 is a beautiful batik, Option #2 a funky #D fabric and Option #3 is a product from Home Depot. (soil separator cloth.)
Thoughts?

More Blessed To Give - Part 2

Donation #2
More 6 inch strips and some 2 inch blocks were used to create this lively Preemie Quilt.
I've decided to take my challenge of one donation item per week in 2010. Wanda is joining me. Any others??

More Blessed To Give

Donation #1
Playing in the 6 inch strip container afforded this preemie quilt which will be given to the local Neonatal Unit. And that led me to wonder, "What if I created a donation project each week in 2010?, What if I encouraged others to join me in the adventure?" One a week, whether home made soap, hand knitted scarf, preemie quilt, journal, some type of jewelry or so many other options, that would be a lot to do but that would be A LOT of donations! I haven't made my final decision yet but would also enjoy hearing other's thoughts.

Ginkgo Leaves

With other projects completed it's time to incorporate the Ginkgo Leaves that were appliqued
just to have a "hand" project. The background is pieced and now I'm contemplating using a white and black fabric for the large ginkgo leaf represented now by white cardboard. and I'm considering embroidering the verse on a green strip and then appliqueing it on as well.
Any suggestions as to options for the ginkgo leaf material or fiber? (It needs to be light to be seen.)

"Nothing Is Impossible"


Even thought the machine quilting for this piece took a back burner during Christmas and New Year's celebrations, it is finished, signed, labeled and hanging. Yipee. It was created in response to the red version which I think would make a fun pattern to hopefully market.

"Show Me Your Ways" - SOLD



God has a way of weaving the events and decisions of our lives and directing us to the Bull's Eye of His plan when we seek His ways.

Nameless



Isn't it interesting how a piece can seem to just go together quite well and then we get stuck. Sewn to this painted canvas, this piece is signed and complete. I like it again. Now for a name for it.

New Year's Day & Fabric Doodle Rescue

Happy New Year! WOOHOO! What a blessing that God's mercy is new every morning (Lamentation 3:22, 23) and not just on January 1.
Having Fabric Doodles/ Cobblestone Blocks available to use anytime is such fun like jazzing up this dish towel.
Congratulations Anita whose name was drawn for the Celebrating 2009 Give Away.
