I finished all 6 leaves for Postmarkd'art Fabric Postcard exchange.. I used a fig leaf and a rubber mat for the sun printing. I bought the fabric from Blueprints on Fabric, www.blueprintsonfabric.com. Check out their site for lots of ideas, supplies, and fabrics. Sue Reno's quilts are my inspiration.
I finally read the Pfaff machine directions and figured out that I used the wrong bobbin and it does help to read the directions.. takes only a bit of patience. Something I sometimes lack. I now need to buy more fabric,, lots of ideas. Will show more photos as soon as I put them on my scanner.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
