I recently made four art quilts using hand dyed paper towels and dryer sheets. I then stitched the small paper quilts to painted canvas. These represent the four elements of Earth, Water, Air and this one is FIRE.

These are for sale in my ETSY store, but could go on display before they sell.
I started to blog in 2007 after learning to make a quilt, which led to my growing creativity in the textile world of art quilt making. My quilts have won prizes in juried art shows! And sold to go live in other's homes.
More recently I have learned that I can draw and paint too. And my time is taken up with drawing in public cafes and other places. Lots of ink drawings over lunch of the people around me. I am a student of Sketchbook Skool for the past year and I enjoy the international community there. The teachers are wonderfully talented and I continue to learn and grow from this experience.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come again soon. I appreciate your comments.
Rose Quilt "Hearts And Flowers" Shown in Above Banner
This quilt is the size to cover the top of a queen sized bed. The roses are frayed and continued washing frays them more giving it an aged soft look, as if it has been in the family for years. The top stitching is free hand drawing directly from the free motion sewing needle. No outlines were drawn on the cloth prior to sewing.
