Welcome to my journey

I design art quilts, table runners, table toppers, mug rugs, place mats, wall hangings, and quilts and sell them on Etsy. I sew from chosen patterns and well as create unique patterns for custom and commission work.

Skiing and snowboarding by quilt

http://etsy.me/gqPB95.  This is an unusual quilt.  I've only seen one other and I'm the one who made that one as well.  I am thinking about adding trees.

Having a bad day?

Whenever I am having a bad day, I think about this poor fellow.  I always know there is an answer to my problems.  http://etsy.me/e3FWba

An owl to keep you on task

I love how the eyes turned out on this owl.  He is a combination of stern task master and smarter than thou attitude with just a bit of sarcasm thrown in.

I seem to have one of everything in my shop.  Today it's a tiny bag, large enough to hold a pair of ballet slippers, a drink and a towel.  Simple to make..should I make more?  The fabric is actually vintage, though I think the manufacturer is still printing the design.

I like to keep trying new things or playing with new fabrics.  I think it's the fabric that drives me.  No, I KNOW it's the fabric that drives me.  That's the real reason why I make one of something.  the fabric never speaks twice about its possibilities.  http://etsy.me/enpp5y

My first attempt at cross stitch

My mother made beautiful things with cross stitich.  After watching her, I wanted to give it a try.  I think it turned out really well.  Happened so long ago that it is now a vintage piece.  It's framed and ready to hang. http://etsy.me/dHwauf

forgot to review my spelling in the previous post.

Batiks and Bamboo

I winder what it would be like to live in a city apartment.  I would really want to liven up my living space with color.  That's why I like the idea of putting this quilt up on a wall.  The babmboo color borders and the tropical baticks can take you away to a seaside oasis.  This could also be used for a doll's quilt or on a table.  http://etsy.me/e5cdUZ

table runner

Lovely fall colors in this table runner and then a pop of color with two purply blue leaves in the middle of each block.
