Art quilt “Jelly Fish Love” is finished. What a fun custom order.

When I got the request for this custom order for 2 jelly fish featured in an art quilt, I would never have thought of doing a wall hanging with this theme. But the more I thought about the request, the more excited I got about the idea. It was intriguing and interesting, and fun to work out how to go about it. I think that's part of the enjoyment of creating any sort of art; translating an idea into something concrete. Working out the "how am I gonna do that?" to "I did it and it's good!!" .

Confessions of a china hoarder, quilts, tea parties and pink.

This is a small tea party for a friend who moved away. It involved making and giving a quilt, of course. I confess, I hoard pretty china, how many sets of china can one person use in a lifetime? The dishes you see here were found in a flea market in England and carried back home in a suitcase. I didn't break even 1 plate! How's that for packing?
