Garden Girls Fiber Book Page

"Garden Girls"
A page for the year long fiber book project. In addition to the pages we are all exchanging, I am also creating a pages with a "new" techniques.

This book has really been a wonderful way to try out a technique on a larger scale then the fabric postcards but not as large as a small quilt. Also, the pages will make for a great reference for successful and not so successful color combinations and techniques.

All of the pages so far have been ideas that I thought would make attractive art quilts- again some more successful then others.

The back of each page includes info about the technique used, fabrics, threads, what worked/what did not.

Bugs Life Fabric Postcards

Bugs Life Fabric Postcards- I am totally into paper piecing. Learned it at Martha Pullen Market last month. It is like a horrible addiction....

This is my first paper pattern design, it was designed using EQ6 program. I designed the block in the block draw feature. The pattern is of two jars filled with bugs. Working on samples jars of fruit and veggies and a few candy jar quilter trading cards to swap in Houston at the Quilt Show in October. Will post photos of those later when they are finished.
