THIS KING-SIZE QUILT IS FINISHED!
(rail fence pattern)
It was built by me, was long-arm quilted by dear friend Jeanne Knudsen; and was completed in the summer of 2020.
It conjures up thoughts of fishing and the flow of the stream.
The quilting stitches reflect a trefoil fish mimicking the threesome of the fisherman, the fish and the water.
MY FIRST ART QUILT: “OCTOBER QUILT” 2013
THIS ART QUILT HAS BEEN EXHIBITED THREE TIMES TO DATE:
PAINTBRUSH PIECERS QUILT GUILD SHOW in Cody Wyoming,
BIG SKY QUILT GUILD SHOW in Billings Montana
PARK COUNTY FAIR in Powell Wyoming.
IT WAS MY FIRST ART QUILT.
AT THE FAIR, It was a ribbon winner IN THE ART QUILT CATEGORY!
Here are some details of the stitching, etc. It is an illustration of Asheville’s famous author Thomas Wolfe’s description of October. This quilt is now in a private collection.
It measures 18 inches wide x 24 inches tall. It incorporates decorative stitching, piping, calligraphy, and applique. Great project to learn a new sewing machine!

I made this bracelet under the tutelage of
Master Beader Birdie Real Bird of Montana.

and tighter together.

EMBROIDERED BAG 2012
this Elegant evening bag ABOVE I created using my Viking machine.
I had a tapestry offcut I got from a textile mill in North Carolina and some Damask to create a small Two-pocket purse with a magnetic snap front enclosure
for my sister in law.
