Art, Fabric and Stitch

The title of this post is also the title of my new book project.  It's a collection of textile art ideas, and I hope to be finished by the end of 2021.

Mixed Media Stitched Collage

This is one of my pieces in the Ecclesia show this month. I veered off my usual path and based these on my edited photos instead of paintings, simply due to time constraints. I had an article deadline and Christmas preprations to budget my time for also. The cat is printed on silk organza and stitched down onto my hand dyed fabric. You can see the fabric showing through the cat, enhancing the lights and darks.

Quilting Arts Article

I did a series of quilts based on the faces of older women and the wonderful attributes I see in them.  If you look, you'll see kindness, humor, patience and all sorts of interesting qualities.
Check out the June/July 2020 issue.

New Work for 2020 FRCQ Show

I'm still moving elements around to decide where I'll applique them.  I think I need another one, and I'm leaning towards a dragonfly - I dearly love their intricacies, and to me they represent mystery.
I'm going to call this quilt "Wisdom Brings Harmony".
