African Woven Clergy Stole

I was gifted this gorgeous woven African piece of fabric.

"Blooming"

"Blooming' was inspired by the beauty  here
in the mountains of
Western North Carolina
The curvy  design and technique
began in a  recent Crazy About Curves workshop
with Vikki Pignatelli., although I changed the design a bit and
added a curved edge - which I really like.
It is at the framing shop now. See more of the process here.
Email me if you are interested in purchasing it.

Thank You Veterans For The Freedom

OK - So not your typical Veteran's Day photo,
yet without the Veterans who serve our country,
I would not have the freedoms I enjoy to
pursue Quilted Fiber Art.
Here I'm quilting a piece from the Crazy About Curves
workshop with Vikki Pignatelli.
You can see how it began here.
Thank You Veterans!

Blackout Poetry At Art Group

 I meet with a great group of Artists  weekly
where we encourage each other and once in a while do a fun activity together.
This week we tried our hand at 
"The central idea is to devise a completely new text from 
previously published words and images, 
which the reader is free to interpret as he wishes"
I also used this opportunity to use my travel watercolor set that
I haven't used in many months.  Thanks Gabrielle for leading us.
" You may be normal, 
because nearly all of us talk.
Yet each ponder change."

 Vintage Charm Quilt  Art Wall Hanging - Charm Is Deceptive
 This rainy day is great for going through inventory
and adding Quilted Art pieces to my Etsy Shop.
I realized that some like this one was never added.
"Charm Is Deceptive"  - $98
was created by choosing
 Apple Core shaped vintage fabrics from my bag without looking to hand piece the next section while creating this tessellated true Charm Quilt.
A Charm quilt is a type of scrap quilt where no two fabrics are repeated.
Hand quilted in circular patterns to enhance the design.
Black with white dotted curved binding is a traditional edge to this type of Charm Quilt.
It also serves as an "I Spy" Quilt.
Hand signed by artist on label along with hanging sleeve.
