D-Dub APP Quilt

Some of us here in Southern California were invited to make an APP Quilt which represents aspects of our personalities.  The idea is that if you push the button you learn more about me.  Color, texture, movement and that fabulous technique I invented using the embellisher - dry felting machine - which requires NO thread.  The technique is durable and excellent for blending one fabric into the next - no hard edges within the design; I do like innovating!  I put it all on an edgy urban ground fabric onto which I printed more to complement the commercial design.   D-Dub will be on display at Road To California, the large quilt show in Ontario CA, which is on in late January. 

Kites Landing

These are two of three kites in a series I made decades ago and which have been on the wall at my friends' house.  They are now retired (yea, both the kites and the friends)!

I used matte medium to laminate printed paper to antique linen.  I then scraped some of the paper away revealing the fabric underneath and used water soluble media to color the pieces.


Behind Bars:


I used water-based paints on silk to create the background and then applied ink and stitching.

This is my contribution to round five of the Formulators round robin.  Guess who the stars are.
