Road to California

I’m excited about going to Road to California quilt show this weekend. I know of several local quilters who have pieces in the show – Congratulations to each of them!

One of my main goals is to test drive the HQ Sweet Sixteen. I’ll let you know what I think.

The little landscape below is “Distant Clearing” and it is the first miniature landscape I ever made. I made it in a Continuing Ed class taught by the wonderful Peggy Martin (many moons ago!). It was a fabric postcard class but I decided to do my own thing. It was awarded third place in a contest for and was published in Miniature Quilt Magazine (no longer with us). It measures about 12″ x 9″ and is hand appliqued and quilted.

I’m off to sew sleeves and binding. Quilting Away, A

Earl’s Art Car

This is one of the pieces from my newest series, a collaboration with my oldest son using his photographs mounted on my fiber pieces. My son took a photo of Earl Shepherd’s awesome hand-painted BMW at a local auto show. This piece (Bodywork) was made for Earl. To see more fantastic photos of Earl’s Art Car and his other artwork visit his website.
