I have just returned home from a wonderful teaching trip in Colorado. I stayed at my friend Andreas home and was delighted to see all her projects she had made using my CD 'Folk-art Dreams' by Electric Quilt. It is a really fun product with about 180 blocks on it that can be changed to any size you desire. The above pillow is a block from my 'Mercer Lane' quilt and the small quilt below is the center of 'Uniontown Square'.
She also used a block from my book 'Greenbrier' to make this journal which she embellished with beads.
I just love this pillow! Last year I taught for my friend Kerry in Salt Lake City and they all embellished this block from my book 'Magnolia'. Andrea put it together as a pillow using a wonderful beaded trim around the edge.
Linda Jenkins from Piece O' Cake Designs is a member of Sunset Slope Quilt Guild in CO and she shared this wonderful new quilt of theirs from their new book my whimsical quilt garden
The class I taught was my 'Altered Texture' and loved all the embellishment techniques each student tried using wonderful threads and stitches.
Don't you just want to touch this fern. I love her use of three different fibers to get this result.
These leaves are layered and them embellished with a closed fly stitch using seagrass and embroidery floss. I find this all so inspiring! I hope to spend the day doing a little stitching myself.
