December 30, 2013

I can finally print an ACCEPTANCE letter!  I will have a quilt in a special exhibit at Hampton  at the end of February, and it will also travel to New Jersey the following month.

The special exhibit is called "A is for Applique", comprised of 34 quilts made by members of the Baltimore Applique Society.

My quilt, "Orange Lotus", is based on blocks from Tile Quilt Revival and the border is my original design. It is all hand appliqued, but I did machine quilt it on my domestic machine.

Holiday making and behind on blogging!

 guild exchange blocks

 baby quilt for a friend

 local charity auction donation, quilted by my friend Margaret.

 I designed and carved a stamp to make some ornaments for friends.

 I sewed my printed fabric onto a felt backing, and added some ribbon hangers with decorative buttons.

 I made approximately a bajillion of these felt bacon ornaments.

and finally, a collage for my hubby, made from an Abita beer wrapper, sheet music and various other ephemera with acrylic paint, gel medium and pastels.
