This week I’m starting on a challenge that is through one of my Quilt Guilds. Their challenge is to choose an envelope that had two crayons (I did not know what colors I was choosing). Create a quilt using these two colors and add up to four more colors.
I received BLUE and BLUE/GREEN.
I came up with drawing rings on white fabric, add designs in the rings, painting the fabric with the colors.
And the following photos are my process thus far. Quilting will begin tomorrow. It’s due December 4 at our Christmas party.
Enjoy the photos!
This week is a busy and exciting one for me!
Monday, April 3, I will be holding my last class for a very successful T-shirt quilt class at Sweet Home School’s Community Education. I will be doing more classes, and will post when those are!!
Tuesday, April 4, at 6:30pm I will be doing a hands-on presentation on The Meaning of Color at the Newman Center on Skinnerville Road. I’ll be talking about how colors effect our mood, spiritual meaning of colors, and bible references of the colors. We will be painting, so if you come, please wear a smock.
Wednesday, April 5, 6:30pm I will be at the Twin City Quilt Guild presenting my Trunk Show. I am excited to tell my quilt journey and share my quilts!
Tuesday and Wednesday are at no cost to you. Please come and join these presentations! I would love to see you!
I just finished the door today. There are stairs, ground, and bottom of building to paint. The bumpy knobs on the door I feel turned out the way I wanted them to! I took a lot of squinting and using the camera on my cell phone to make sure I got it right. I could not get it like this without the modern tools.
Why squint and use the camera? When I am painting, I am right on top of each stroke and don’t tend to see the results of my painting from a viewers stand point. There are many ways to view the art in progress in a “viewers” eye. Squinting is one (be careful of this, I have a headache and eye pain which will go away with some well deserved rest), cell phone camera, and step back from the art piece about 20 feet.
Hope you enjoy it!
This is a little slide show presentation showing how the painting process changes the quilt and brings it alive. Hope you enjoy it!

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!
