Coming Out of Hibernation

The fourth quilt in my Arabesques series has been sleeping the winter away in a heap on my work table. (I last posted about finishing the top in June!) I’d done some basic quilting over the summer (?) in the fall (?)  but put it away after that. I knew that it needed more quilting, but […]

I’ve just added a few more quilts for sale in my shop. Now all of my favorite art quilts are available for purchase, including “Circles,” which I created last year.

Painting Project

Photo Friday – Woman Made

This week’s assignment in my sketching and watercolor class was to draw a machine-made object.
