Challenge: Flavor of the Month


Title: "Done Just Right"

September is marshmallow month in our family because it is when we go camping. And…what is camping without roasted marshmallows? The kids gather their own wood sticks and the few marshmallows, not popped into their mouths, are skewered to be roasted. Inevitably, the debate starts … how to cook a marshmallow.  I love them burned; my two sons compete to see how many browned skins they can slide off of one marshmallow; and my husband likes it browned to swallow in one bite.

  1. YIKES!!!   This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!  This is the type of art that makes you want to touch it because it is so textural.  Oh, and I want to smell it and taste it too!!    Your work is inspiring.  The ashen wood in the fire is phenomenal!!  Thank you for sharing your gift.  My humble efforts and contributions to this art form pale in comparison.  Your work and those of this quilting arts community have truly inspired me to continue to grow and learn to express myself in this medium. 



  2. This is out of this world. It looks so real you want to bite in it.

     Love everything about this. It is fantastic.

    Thanks for posting the bigger pictures.

    Your work is awesome.



  3. This is a fantastically realistic piece. I love it. How did you attach the silk roving? I see no stitches holding it in place. Will you sell a pattern and instructions? So many techniques to perfect — do I see trapunto on top of trapunto in the marshmallows?
