I must apologize for an attempt last night [a really, really late night attempt] to post these two quilts. Somehow […]
, there is so much beautiful fabric available, it's hard to control the urge to start a new project with every new wonderful fabric you see or buy. It reminds me of a 2 year old running from one toy to the next until he has emptied his whole toy box. I always feel that I'm 4 or 5 projects behind.
I've started work on 3 quilts, don't ask me why. I usually take em one at a time.The silk background is completed and the silk art painting finished. I've just begun the thread work, which is now where near finished as you see. I'll post updated pictures along the wayI added lots of pearl to my paint colors as I mixed them.

As promised, I'll share a few more quilts from the big MQX show. Did I mention last post, that there seemed to be more quilts with glimmer and shimmer? I had to find out which methods were used.

Here's the latest art quilt I've been working on, like a busy little bee. love the wild abandon , the bold color. I gave myself permission go with my inclinations. It was made with the intention of a companion piece that harmonized with my last abstract quilt, "Down the Rabbit Hole".
As you may have knticed I have a lot of photos included in my art quilt blog pages, this is ovbously because I enjoy photographty and I enjoy making art quilts as well. I am sure you are all aware that I will soom be opening my my art web site. I'll give more details later.
I plan on keeping my etsy shop open to carry all sorts of non art items
