Art Projects 2012-13


My first Art Piece
Sunflower Delight
My first attempt at Quilt Art. I have called it "Sunflower Delight". I have used various free motion designs with metallic and variegated  threads, corded twisted wool. braid and rick rack and the addition of some buttons. I drew the pattern onto freezer paper then cut the fabric pieces.  (Feb.2013)

I was inspired to this piece of art by a watercolour painting that I did a couple of years ago . I took a piece of freezer paper and drew out a design then cut it out and used it to cut out my fabric.
The pieces went together quite quickly. I glued them to a light interfacing as a stabalizer for the machine embroidery.  




It's a Journey!
Auditioning party. What costume should I wear? This little piece started as a improvo practice piece and is now moving on to new things. At this point nothing is sure. We wait to see. Come visit again and see what becomes of me.
"Faith, Hope, Charity".....a new piece in process on my all too small designer board. Still has to be quilted and a couple items adjusted but it is coming along.

A Facebook group Started

I had been working on a bargello but got a bit bogged down with it. I wanted to add some butterflies but wasn't feeling like that at the moment so I have put this on hold for a while.
Then I got involved in starting a new facebook Quilting group called Improv.Quilting/Permission to play. Sound like fun. Join us.
. I have found that delving into improv has helped me be more creative and more willing to step out, dive in.

Following up on Jan.18th Blog

I seem to be having a creative block or something when it comes to the project that I started back in Jan, and it is probably due to the fact that my creativity is going in way too many directions and too many UFO's, all of which are sort of that are the "create as you go" kind. I suppose there are more of you out there who are like this and can identify. Anyway the Jan. yet unnamed project is on hold.....for now!
