Wedding album scapbook covers

Made two fabric album covers for wedding photographs from placemats, stiffened heart doilies, ribbons and embellishments. Its hard to believe they are actually very large art portfolios that are now scrapbooks that hold assorted sizes of photos that slip right in.

Marriage: Life Lessons

Recently, my quilt, Marriage: Life Lessons was juried in the International Quilt show in Houston.                                                              

It was originally made as free advice for my daughters! I wanted to give it to Dave and Lisa for the wedding but it had to be in Houston prior to September. So, all they have is a poster of the quilt until it finishes touring for the next three years. It was the first large quilt I made with an electronic cutter. Thanks, Wanda!
Someone sent me a link to the quilt in Houston.

Instant silk dying

At the Mancuso World Quilt and Textile show, Marlene Glickman shared how to dye silk scarves. Each of these scarves were done in less than 10 minutes in her booth. The best part is that the dyes were not messy! We did not even wear gloves while dying the scarves in a sandwich bag. She shared how to get the zebra stripe effect and the apprearance of squares just by how we folded the fabric. It was so much fun!
