Wind Chimes Quilt

The art quilt group I belong to once again traded grab bags. Here is what I did with my bag. The background fabric is ice dyed and the rest are commercial fabrics, buttons and beads.

Sun Series

Here is an art quilt in my "sun" series. This piece depicts the change of the seasons and the one constant throughout - the sun. All the fabric was hand dyed. the cylindrical rays of the sun were free motion sewn and the center was made with polymer clay, surrounded with seed beads.

Quilted ATC

Here is another Artist Trading Card from my orange and  turquoise series. The batch of 15 cards will be trading among the members of a art quilt group I belong to. This set of cards originated from a stack of fabric I printed on. The remnants were chopped up into the classic 2.5"x 3.5" size.

Gone Fishing

Happy Father's Day to my husband and avid fisherman. The fish print was made while at my fellow art quilter's studio.

Washed Up ATC

This ATC is from a collection I made from a mono-printing experiment. It features washers that I lifted (that is another word for stole) from my husband's work bench. In addition to mono-printing using a gelli plate, I used a self made stencil out of freezer paper.

More ATC

As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently had a creative play date with a friend and we went crazy monoprinting fabric. I'll be displaying some of the Artist Trading Cards I've made with the fruits of our labor.

Print Making & Doodles

I went to a friends house for a creative play date and became introduced to the joys of print making. While I've been mostly printing on fabric, today I took some watercolor paper to absorb my leftover paint. Since another obsession of mine as of late is lettering, I worked on my design skills with this letter K.
