“I Was Old In The Forest”

IMG_20190827_152453822

This one was quite the journey from start to finish. The photo the quilt was made from was done my a wonderfully talented photographer and artist, Cayton Cox. (Check out his Instagram here.) The quilt itself is broken up into 60 different squares and rectangles. It was kind of difficult, but it was fun watching it all come together. The final size is approximately 40 by 60 inches. (I still have to attach the hanging sleeve.) It’s made with over 50 different fabrics, in all sorts of textures ranging from tulle to heavyweight upholstery fabric. I’m scheduled to teach a class on this printing technique this summer at the Textile Center of Minnesota, but with everything going on, I’m not super sure. I suppose only time will tell.

‘The Woods’ Quilt

IMG_20180412_121351448.jpg

I’m not typically an earth tone person, but hey, I’ll tell you what… This shit is on hit! It’s made from quilting cotton, and knit acrylic fabric, that I even knit myself at work. I’m really digging the texture it lends this quilt. It also gave me an excuse to use up some brown jelly roll strips I had left over from another project.

Now I just have to find time to quilt it… Wish me luck!

Finished My Batik Charm Quilt Top

nickel

True Love! That’s all I feel for this! I can’t even describe it in words. I had all the charm packs lying around, and I just decided to use them! I don’t know what I was saving them for, but damn it! It looks good! Now, part of me wants to try some funky free motion quilting on it, the other part wants me to use an embroidery motif, and the last part says send it off to be quilted. I’m not sure! Part of me is asking if I trust myself enough to free motion it myself? To be honest, I’m not sure… We’ll see. A dear friend of mine is quilting three quilts for me as we speak… (Well, I think she mounted one on her frame, possibly…) I’m just not sure. I’m sure I’ll figure it out.

Finished: Fire Walk With Me!

img_20170605_122535820.jpg

It’s no secret to my friends that I love Twin Peaks! This new season is on hit! It’s confusing as hell, but I’m just so damn into it! Anyways, I made this Twin Peaks inspired quilt, called: Fire Walk With Me. And that verbiage is actually what it is quilted with. I used my embroidery machine, and digitized a couple versions of that phrase to stitch through the layers with. I also made a version of the Black Lodge symbol. The one that appears on the green ring. It’s kind of hard to read it all on the front, but on the back is where you can see all of this amazing stitching! I made it for a friend, but she doesn’t know it is for her yet. I think she’ll love it! More pictures after the jump!

My Batik Charm Quilt

IMG_20170526_182818.jpg

I was at work today, contemplating about what the heck to do with all of those charm squares I had decided to start sewing together. Part of me just thought, well just make a giant nickel quilt, but then I have the matching Jelly rolls to play with as well. There were a lot of possibilities, and I think this one is going to work for me! Wish me luck! Maybe I’ll have half the top done by Monday!!!! Fingers crossed!

My Latest Art Quilt

I took an old quilt background I had lying around and added some applique to it to make it flow more, and I really hated it. I mean, it really sucked to look at. So then I added paint, and more paint, and now I have something I can work with! I think I’m going to call it Flint. Hopefully I’ll have it done soon, and I can show it off!
