New Works In Progress

Finished Canvas 1

I’ve been busy! Work was swamped for 6 months, and now everything it at a halt. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. So I just wanted to share some of the pieces I have been working on. Some of them are done, and some are still in progress. I hope everyone stays safe out there. I’ll be adding more pieces I am currently working on shortly.

I’m also asking anyone with any cancelled quilt shows, art shows, or other exhibits to contact me, and I’ll gladly display your pieces!!!! The world needs to see art! Especially now!

Follow the jump for more of the canvases I’ve been tinkering with! Continue reading

I’ve Been Working… I Promise

I know I haven’t posted much lately, but I swear it’s because I’ve been busy! I did get sidetracked by some health problems, but I’m back on my game! I really want to tell everyone what I’ve been working on, and now I have enough of it done that I can share!

I’ve been fabric printing! I know, that doesn’t sound super exciting, but trust me, it’s not like what you’re used to! I’ve been collaborating with two amazing artists: Beau Brokop, an amazing photographer and digital artist, as well as Cayton Cox, and amazing photographer. I’m making the fabric palettes, using my amazing quilting skills, obvs, and then printing their art on it! It gives a result that is astounding, as well as painfully beautiful to look at!

Over a dozen pieces are currently on display at Promise You Art House, and if you are in the 219 area this weekend, you should check out their event for the new show opening!

The featured image on this article is a piece from Beau Brokop, and it’s a 15″ by 15″ wall hanging quilt! It’s currently on display at Promise You Art House. I’ve printed about 50 of these images on fabric so far in sizes ranging from 5″ by 7″s to 24″ by 24″ wall hanging pieces. This is extra rewarding for me, because I’ve been thinking and dreaming this up for months! I started work on it in March, and I’ve just kind of exploded with it since then!

I’ve been printing on all sorts of fabric, and trust me, there were mistakes, and things that didn’t turn out, but for the most part I’ve made some amazing prints. I think I might even be teaching a class on it next spring in Minnesota! Also, anyone let me know of any places around Chicago or Northwest Indiana I can teach or lecture about it!

Check out some of the images I’ve been printing after the jump! Continue reading

My Fabric Order Came In

Well, most of it anyways. It got stuck in the bad weather in the Northeast and I had to wait for it. I’m still waiting for a bolt of light lime colored fabric so I can start on a commission quilt I have. I’m also going to use the purple and orange for the curtains in my bedroom! I’m so excited! I’m going to watch Mr. Nobody and get a cutting on the fabric I have. Wish me luck!

Silky Prints Fabric For Scarf Making

I did some heavy fabric shopping the other day. I bought these gorgeous silky print fabrics and I’m just so excited to do some work with them! I have plans fr a couple of different kinds of scarves. I think my favorite is the orange and teal! I can’t wait to make something exciting. I know I’m making infinity scarves, but I’ve got a couple of other ideas to mess around with! Wish me luck!
