A New Design

I just finished a 15" x 60" quilt. Inspiration was memories of hiking in the eastern wilderness areas of the Sierra Nevada mountains many years ago. We were above 10,000 ft and found a fabulous display of wildflowers. I started this piece by cutting up two hand painted silk blouses, out of style yet still great fabrics. Using MistyFuse it was easy to fuse the blouse pieces for part of the background and add a few more silks.

Dick & jane is whole again

I was able to restore the panel that was stolen in April. The original was spontaneous so making it again was a chore but now that it is finished, I am happy I spent the hours doing the redo. Now I am ready to try something new and different. I do like the concept of long and skinny, about
15 wide by 60 long. This week is full of appointments so
look out next week! Studio here I come!
