Art Prints Now Available

I get a lot of request for PRINTS of my art work.  Finally, I have had two of my favorites professionally printed.  Wouldn’t any quilter or sewist in your life love one of these to grace their studio?

The prints are sold UN-framed, but I went to Walmart and found these inexpensive frames.  They even came with a mat.  Easily framed, and don’t they look great?

Christmas Gift

I’m really proud of myself for actually finishing  a quilt as a gift for my daughter in law, Robyn. (OK, it really didn’t get finished until Dec 27th, but who’s counting?)  It is actually done and bound. Finished!

I made up the pattern as I went along.  I used a couple of charm packs of 5″ squares. (Simple Marks by Malka Dubrawsky for Moda)  I sewed them randomly together into 20- 4 patch blocks.  Each 4 patch was bordered by a skinny 1 1/2 inch border in a solid cream.  I had extra yardage (the blue print) that I had purchased that was from the same fabric line as the 5″ squares.  I then added the blue sashing (with cream corner squares) and finished it off with a 4 inch border in the same blue print.  It was pretty fast to put together.  If you wanted to do the same, you would need 2 charm packs, and a couple of yards of the cream and blue.  The finished quilt measures aprox. 55″ x 70″–a great lap size.

Robyn wanted something cozy and warm, so I backed it with cream Minkee fabric and used wool batting.  I quilted it in my all-over “daisy” pattern.

Though I didn’t finish (or even start) everything I thought of to make for gifts this Christmas, I am very pleased that this one thing actually did get finished and delivered!
