I admit it, I love thrift store shopping. I don’t know why this admission is a bit embarrassing. It’s true, I enjoy it. It’s a treasure hunt, you never know what you’ll find. That’s part of it’s appeal. When you discover something unexpected, that you just love, it feels like you won the prize.

These little vintage playing cards are my latest find. (more…)

“Here’s The Finished Quilt”

Now that this art quilt is completed, I’m going to share a few more photos of it, in it’s final form. Many of the elements in this quilt will look familiar, because I’ve been posting photos all along, showing it’s progress as I’ve worked on it. (more…)

It’s been months of work on this large new commissioned quilt and I am just about finished. I’ve gotten a lot done since my last post about it and will show you a few of the most recent pictures and my next post I show you the finished quilt.

It’s around 50″ wide. The fabric was painted, then appliqué was done, covering almost the entire quilt top. Finally the extensive thread painting  was completed. I’ve nearly finished the quilting. Almost at the finish line and leaving for Australia to rest in it’s new home, the office of the psychologist who commissioned the piece.
