A Little Prize for a Little Quilt

Libby's Leaves by Laura Wasilowski

Libby’s Leaves by Laura Wasilowski

A while back I made this fused art quilt for an auction for my friend, Libby Lehman. It measures about 30″ x 30″ and was inspired by one of her beautiful quilts all about leaves.

Enjoying the process of free-cutting shapes, I made a smaller version (about 20″ x 20″) using the same theme and fabric colors.  Entered it in the International Quilt Festival in Houston this year and found out it won third in the Art/Miniature division.

I’m so thankful to have inspiring friends like Libby!

Packing for the Big Show

Windy City #13 by Laura Wasilowski

It’s that time of year when I pack for the International Quilt Festival in Houston and forget something of great import. You can ask me what I forgot when visiting me in the Artfabrik/Friestyle Booth, #1911, next week.

booth2Please stop in and check out our wares. Frieda and I will have hand dyed fabric, thread, patterns, books and little quilts like the one above, Windy City #13.
