Handmade Beaded Jewelry

I'm happy to say that my 2 mini quilts are finished. If you click on the photo you can see some of the details. I really enjoyed doing these and have a couple of more in the works. After that I need to do think again about my Roman couple quilt...I think on that one I'm going to have to handquilt it. My machine quilting is not up to my standards yet. Anyone who thinks machine quilting is easy or maybe cheating is way wrong. For really good machine quilting you need a tremendous amount of patience and skill. Both of which I have not achieved...LOL So I'll stick with what I do best. Handquilting...It takes longer but I'm not going anywhere....LOL

Another 12" fiberart square

Lately I have been on a 12" x 12" quilt kick...I guess you can say it's like eating potato chips. You just can't have one....LOL..And since I can't have the chips the quilts will have to do....Very Low Cal. And who knows, maybe someone one would like to purchase one. Here is my latest one, using a picture of a painting of Frida Kahlo.  Not quite done yet. Needs to be quilted. But I just had to share...

Lesley Riley's workshop

Last week my guild, Northern Star Quilters, had a visiting Fiber Artist as a guess speaker and teacher at our meeting.. I had taken one of
Lesley's workshops before, so was really excited about taking other one of her classes. And as usual I was not disappointed. This time we worked with Lutradur. We painted, used TAP transfer paper, used a heat gun and embossing powers. We were children playing and it was very liberating. Yesterday 4 of my friends came over and we played again. Here is a almost finish 12" quilt. It still needs to be layered and quilted. Hopefully I will get to it in the next day or two.
