A Fix and Giveaway

This little piece has been on my design wall unfinished for a while. It was a cut of a larger piece of hand painted fabric that I free motion quilted just for fun. I can’t even remember if I filmed while I was quilting it. I couldn’t figure out how to finish it, to fix it until a few days ago.

I’m happy to say I fixed it and you can see what I did here…

The November giveaway, sweepstakes item is this little leaf decorated box. It’s hard pressed paper and only the top is decorated. I used painted (mop-up) fabric leaves, a couple papers, burned matches, grave vine, and gold paint spatters. It measures 6 1/2″ x 4″ x 2 5/8″ tall. It could be used as is or it could be painted, papered, or embellished in a multitude of other ways. But there’s more… I’ll be putting a little something extra inside the box.

If you are interested in a chance to win the leaf box with surprise inside just follow the rules below. The winner’s name will be announced on my December 1, 2021 blog post.

Sweepstakes/giveaway begins November 10, 2021 and ends at 9pm (Pacific Time) November 28, 2021.

To enter: You must live in the US only (no international entries). One entry per person. Leave a comment that you would like to win the leaf box with surprise, and include your first and last name (or last initial).

I’ll use a random drawer and announce the winner on my Dec 1 blog post. Winner will email me their mailing information and I will mail the ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­leaf box with surprise ASAP. If I don’t hear from the winner within five days of drawing date, I will run another random draw. Good luck!

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.


  1. Wow Ann I am amazed at all your art work! It’s always interesting what your next project is that you are working on.

  2. Thank you. I recently saw another artist used it in their art, I wish I could remember who, probably someone on Instagram. You may recall, I have an older post where I used it for sun-printing and rubbing a design on fabric. You didn’t say, so I’ll ask – Would you like to be entered in this giveaway?

  3. Thank you for coming along. For me it’s always fun, not always successful but still a good time. Just to be sure – Would you like to be entered in this giveaway?

  4. I’d like to be entered to win the box.

    I love how you quilted and painted that mini art quilt.

  5. I have used a roller over quilted cloth, but have never gone into the detail you did on your mini quilt. Thanks for sharing yet another technique.

  6. I always appreciate your comments, thank you. Right now, I’m actually contemplating whether or not to paint the piece with all the bubbles, not the stitching but only the raised surface (it has wool batting). I’ll be pondering that while I work on the fiber embellishments.

  7. I really like all your projects and I’m working on ways to incorporate them in my art. Thank you and please enter me in the drawing.

  8. As always, your creations are inspiring. Ann! Thanks for continuing to share your art.
