Always Ideas

I’m getting ready to teach a class on Sunday, these are strange times to be teaching live, but I really am looking forward to it.

As promised I have a new video. It seems the more I play with ways to get paint onto fabric the more ideas I get, and for me ideas lead to more ideas to try.

I’ll be announcing a new giveaway in October so if you are interested I hope you’ll stop by. For now enjoy the video, I hope it gives you some new ideas.

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. Love projects where I already have all the ingredients. Have you tried printing on paper? Or what about colored/printed fabric? Can’t wait to see the finished owl. Thanks for filming your process.

  2. Thank you. I did lay paper on after printing the fabric a couple of times, for a ghost print, but not specifically for printing the paper. That didn’t work; unlike a gel print plate, the paper bag, and I suspect fabric, held on to/took too much of the paint. I like your idea of printing on already colored/printed fabric. I guess it would act as the wash fabric before brayering the print. I have ideas for the owl, we’ll see if it works. I appreciate you watching the video, your comments, and for always giving me more ideas!
