Memory Quilt in process

I have the honor of creating a memory quilt for a special person I know. She wanted me to create a quilt using two photos from her sister’s wedding including a family tree. She also showed me photos of what she was thinking.

So I came up with doing an embroidered border with the photos on either side of the family tree that I’m painting. This project is not complete yet, but I am sharing with you my process.

Cutting out the embroidered designs

Every piece is cut out and now I’m painting the family tree on the yellow fabric.

The tree is still not complete. It still looks like a tree in winter right now! Leaves will be put on soon and the names will be painted. Still lots of work to do, but I’m enjoying the process!

Peace –

Michigan Street Finished!

I’m very excited to present to you my first piece in the Buffalo/Niagara Region Series.  This is Michigan Street.  It is mounted onto a painters canvas and has a hanging wire for easy hanging.

I am working on three other quilts at this time to add to this collection.  In 2017 or 2018, I hope to have an exhibit at the Carnegie Art Center in North Tonawanda.  More information on that will follow!

Buffalo Scene

I am starting a new adventure of exploring the amazing Buffalo/Niagara Region.  I have lived here my entire life so far and wanted to capture some of it’s past, present, and future views by using my art.  I am enjoying taking trips with my husband to take photos.  We usually have an area we photograph.    This will be my first series which will continue to grow over the years.  I intend to show and sell them at an exhibit next year.

This is the first one I am doing.  It will be called Michigan Street Lift Bridges. I’m not very far on it as of this point, however, by the end of this week, I hope to complete it and move onto my next one!

I would love to hear what you think of my idea and if you have any favorite areas I can visit and take photos at.
