Repurposed Journal - Favorite Rubber Stamp


I believe I bought this "love" rubber stamp from the 
 $1 bin while visiting my daughter in Ohio.
It's my current favorite stamp to add to quick art pieces. 
See some here and here.
Journal is art paper from a collaborative project in a workshop,
cardboard box cover with a fabric binding.
This journal has become a "to do" journal for an upcoming event.

Dresden Plates Progress

I'm using an off white silk thread to hand applique these 
 Dresden Plate Blocks. 3 are completed and 1 more is
almost ready for the yellow center.
That will only leave 4 more to sew to add to the other 16 
hand sewn by 2 other women.  It's going to be a  beautiful
quilt that will benefit the Old Depot and local school's art programs.

Modern Guild Guild Challenge Piece Finished! "Gearing Up" $325

Elizabeth Garlington was the speaker
at the Modern Quilt Guild meeting 
a few months ago.  After her presentation, Elizabeth 
asked the group to each put the 2 fat quarters brought for a mystery challenge on a table. 
I presumed that we were going to use our 2 fat quarters to put a composition together just using our 
original fabrics.  I was surprised when we were to cover our eyes and choose 2 new fabrics from the table for our challenge.    I chose this red linen and a cotton beige.  I use red a lot in my art but not beige making this quite a challenge for me.  
Hand appliqued circles and squares are embellished with Big Stitch circles and 
improvisational lines.
20 inches long X 16 inches wide.
"Gearing Up" - $325
Modern Quilt Guild Challenge. 2 Blindly chosen fabrics. Red linen (I loved) & solid  beige (I did not collaborate with hours of Big Stitch & hand quilting.
