  • Group show "Conversations with Cloth" Brainerd, MN

    Six fiber artists and a potter just completed a five week show today. In MN, in 2008, it was voted that we increase the sales tax to include funding for arts and heritage. The show was sponsored by The Crossing Arts Alliance which promotes the arts in our geographical area and by a grant from the MN...

  • Re: Forum Challenge - A Word Challenge - Homophones/Homographs/Homonyms

    For this challenge, I chose Homonyms and selected the words pray (to speak to a God), prey (a victim). For some reason I instantly thought of a praying mantis in a compromising position and praying that he would not become the next prey. I drew out the design and then had fun selecting the fabrics. I...

  • Re: Forum Challenge - It's My Nature

    My challenge piece is "A Font for Patrick" I also used this for a challenge piece for my local quilting guilt. Theme wise, it appeals to me more of what I strive for than what I am. Nature centers and calms me. This quilt represents a Celtic cross with a small spring dedicated to St. Patrick...

  • Re: Forum Challenge - It's My Nature

    I have really wanted to make a quilt with hummingbirds. I am crazy about birds and this challenge inspired me to come up with a design that included hummingbirds and two of my favorite flowers: orange trumpet vines and beebalm. It has been unusually cold here in Florida, and Im really missing all the...

  • Sea Turtle Quilt

    I decided to try something new with this quilt and work with felt. I created the image in photoshop and then took that to Kinko's and had it printed the actual size of the quilt. I began by making all of the sea vegetation first. I created the big red anemone out of individual pieces that I then...

  • Insurance for quilts

    Hello everyone, My question has to do with insuring quilts when they are exhibited. Lots of shows want us to have our quilts insured. I had a quilt in a college/university art school show and sent it without insurance. Shipping companies cover the quilts while being transported to and from. What are...

  • Re: Forum Challenge - It's My Nature

    "Peachy Posy" is among many FIRSTS in my life recently! We had a stormy Montana spring and those rainy skies became the inspiration for this design which began first as a sketch while longingly gazing out the window. It represents many "firsts" in my life, one of which was a time...

  • Re: guild anniversary challenge

    Muppin It takes an eternity for new tools to drift South, I couldn't find the rose maker anywhere in Mobile! So I made ribbon roses. The quilt turned out pretty good. I was working in a tight timeline. The leaves are velevt and taffita, the vines are made from wool yarn. Everything is fused, raw...
