It’s always a thrill to see finished art work created by one of my students. This fun little village was made by Annie who attended my class at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Can you guess why her delightful quilt is called “There’s Always One”?
It’s true, when ever Frieda and I travel to the International Quilt Festival we meet the best people and birds. So put on your bird and visit us at the Artfabrik/Friestyle booth #1229 in Houston!
I totally forgot to tell you that I won a prize at the International Quilt Festival in Houston for this little quilt, Bird on a Branch #6. It won second place in the Art Miniature category.
Hope you like it. I know I enjoyed making it.
Sure we look fresh and pretty in this photo. But in reality Frieda and I are frantically trying to set up our Artfabrik/Friestyle booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston today.
And it’s all for you! Please stop in and visit us in Booth #1229 and say “Hi!”.
In a fit of cleaning out a studio shelf, I unearthed another little quilt to update. The paint brush in Brushing Up #7 looked so sad and lonely that I felt it needed a companion. How do you update an old quilt?
Why put a bird on it of course! Now our little paint brush has a friend. Ah, isn’t that sweet? You’ll see this quilt and many others at the Artfabrik/Friestyle booth at the Houston International Quilt Festival next week. Come see Frieda and me in booth #1229.
Many years ago I came across some beautifully dyed silk roving. I’m not a spinner, but the glow and sheen of the silk really caught my eye. So I bought a bunch of it.
I’ve finally packaged it up and will be selling it at the Artfabrik/Friestyle (booth #1229) at the International Quilt Festival. I know people will ask me how to use it. But I don’t know what to do with it. Any ideas?
