St. Elizabeth Fiesta Quilt

I donated this quilt to the live auction at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church 2010 Fiesta in September.
The quilt is made from a pattern called Dot Party designed by the very talented Julie at Jaybird Quilts.


A quilt for a friend

I made this quilt for a dear friend. The butterflies on the blue fabric have a person significance to her, and I love the batik fabrics. The beautiful blues and browns in this quilt feel so peaceful to me. Its size is about 48 by 64 inches. I made this quilt in one week; from buying the fabric to hand sewing the label onto the back. I put a quote on the label that I felt held meaning to my friend.
When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly. -Edward Teller


Minor Surgery (an art edit) -sold

I originally made this piece in July of 2008. (See Renewal in the Blog Archive)
I thought that it could use some work so I added some more layers of cotton and burned everything again.

Pot holder crazy!

Ok, I have been making tons of pot holders lately. I don't exactly know why, I found the heat resistant batting at the fabric store and I thought that pot holders would be an easy and fun way to use it. Here are the first ones that I made, more to come soon!


Lila and the Fire

I have a wall hanging on display at the Starbucks on Louis Henna in Round Rock.
Thank you, Philip, for letting me put it on display!
This wall hanging is 49 by 60 inches and is made from cotton and canvas.
The cotton has been ripped into squares, dyed with tea, stamped with acrylic paint, and burned before it is applied in layers to the canvas.
This is a very striking piece both in size and detail and is best seen in person.
Go check it out and pick up a drink while you are there. I am addicted to the egg nog chai!

My friend, Abbey, recently taught me how to make these cute flowers. I have made a ton of them and added either alligator clips or brooch pins to the backs. Take a look!
