Small Things

I concentrate on large quilts, when I am counting up the projects that I have finished throughout the year, but the truth is that many small things are also created. My fiber art group, SAFA did a birthday card exchange this year, and we all enjoyed getting small pieces of art from each other, on our special days. I actually made many special cards, wall hangings and baby quilts, for special people. I enjoy giving hand made gifts. This year, like many people, I purchased an E-reader. I enjoy reading books on this device, but it also serves as a great photo album for my quilts. Of course, I made a cover for it! Here it is.

Baby It's Cold Outside!

It's 10 degrees outside this morning! In our part of New England we have lucked out, with no snow on the ground yet! I am writing and making Christmas cards, have almost completed my, "slice," for my first slice quilt to be done with fiber art friends and taking stock of the quilts that I have completed this year. Ho, Ho,'s almost Christmas!

It's finished: Lobster Boats

This quilt is complete and I am now working on my first slice quilt, with fiber friends. Pretty soon I have to inventory what I have finished this year. It's been a big year for painted whole cloths. Thats what Lobster Boats is.

In Process

I started painting this quilt the week before Thanksgiving, after painting nothing for a little while. As soon as I start with the painting, I feel better! It didn't take this one long to be finished with the painting process. It's on my machine now and almost done!

Racing Quilts

Here are the horse racing quilts that I created from my digital photos. They are the result of a day at Saratoga!

Feedback welcome.


I took down a picture of I quilt that I did, in order to comply with entry requirements, in an upcoming SAQA show. I wish I had not removed that post from my blog. It had great feedback from those of you who took the time to critique the work. The quilt was not accepted for the show, and I've lost the comments. Lesson learned.
