The process

Sometimes it just takes many hands to do the job

This is a series of four wall quilts not done or ready for prime time. Many hands have had a hand in these pieces. Rebecca Janes who took the time to give me a refresher course in de-constructed screen printing, Rebecca of Ananse Village for tempting me with her wonderful batiks from Ghana, Ellyn Mosbarger for giving me the yellow fabric with the discharged leaf motif, Linda Carlson who found our old old thermofax machines years ago, Rose Hughes for picking that deep plum color for the paint for the screen print of the leaf, and the various goodie bags and give away fabric bags that have come my way.

Joined Facebook this week - again, what was I thinking?

I am working on my blank greeting card selection for fall shows. These cards have wee quilts on them. I collage the batik fabrics onto felt, sew and embellish, then sew the squares onto the cards. I like outlining the quilt with black marker - gives it visual boundaries

My quilt "the line between warm and cool" will be in the Oct/Nov issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. It is part of the EDGES quilt exhibit which premiered at the Long Beach IQA show and will be in Houston in October. The quilt will have an entire page in the Edges article.
Also getting ready to deliver 2 quilts to the Muckenthaler Cultural Arts Center in Fullerton for their upcoming - Contemporary Quilts exhibit. What fun.

Los Angeles Fires

This picture was taken by my daughter who lives near the beach. This was the view yesterday from Long Beach looking back, towards the mountains. If it was a thunder cloud that is one thing, but this is the fire.

I love her art, you might get tired of seeing it but truly, she has a different view of my world.
