  • Collograph Printing on Fabric – 5 Tips for Great Results

    Monoprinting techniques make me feel like a kid in art class: most are easy, fun, and a little messy. But making collograph prints has to be the most fun of all. You start by gathering found objects, gluing them collage-fashion onto a stiff substrate like a canvas board. Varnish over the whole thing...

  • Hand Embroidery Made Modern with Simple Hand Sewing Stitches

    Hand embroidery often has an old-fashioned connotation, especially if you grew up following hand embroidery patterns for cross stitch or hand stitching Bo Peep-like ladies on pillow cases. I love to incorporate vintage hand embroidery pieces in my fiber art, especially prayer flags. They are charming...

  • Pretty Pincushions from Fabric Scraps: 4 Ideas

    I have a bunch of pincushions, some from my mom and grandmother, and others I've picked up along the way. My favorite is made of felted wool, and was probably made by felting a "log" of wool together, and cutting it into 2" slices. Once, I was using this pincushion near my machine...

  • Design a Quilt with an Artist's Eye

    It's not every day you get to pose as an artist's model. But that's just what I did when Carrie Bloomston needed a volunteer to pose (fully clothed!) while she demonstrated a drawing exercise.

  • Dad and Jack

    This is a fabric portrait I made for my dad's 85th birthday. It's from a photo of him when he was 9 years old, posing with his dog, Jack.

  • Checks & Balances: Art Quilt by Caryl Bryer Fallert

    This quilt is a visual interpretation of a philosophical concept. "Checks and Balances" is a term most of us first heard in our high school civics classes, an idea to which we aspire in government and in the world around us, and often fall short. Perhaps the best way to achieve balance is to...
