The "F" Word

Fabric Folded Flower

I choose 3!
 When my mom spotted this 3 session class.
We signed up on the spot!

We learned ways to fold the fabric, sew it between layers of fabric
and tack the fabric to create the shapes forming the pedals.

But the fun didn't stop there.
 We then embellished.
 I choose to French Knot the center
 and add sparkly paint. Quilted with metallic threads and added crystals.
 My mom choose to add all kinds of texture yarns.
Had so much Fun making this little art piece.
But mostly because my mom and I share this time together!

Friends, Prom & Segways!

This quilt was made for Keith and Lucy as a wedding gift.
At the reception, guests signed the back, in the diamond shapes, as they arrived.
It was a wonderful day.
They truly are meant for each other!

On the back are a few photos, along with the
signitures and a copy of the wedding invitation.

I spent allot of time trying to turn this photo and just could not do it.
This is my handsome son and his beautiful date.
They looked So.... Stunning as a Couple!

Not only did our son go to the Prom but our Niece as well.
She looked so... Pretty in her white and gold dress.

Had to include a photo of Ronald with his best friend.
 He has been apart of our family since kindergarten.

And a full shot of Ronald and his date. Her dress was perfect.

I think we maybe CRAZY!
Philadelphia is not far from our home,
so we took advantage of the weather.
My husband, 2 sons and mother straped on our helmets and cruised the city
by Segways. I was amazed by how much I have not seen of Phila. by car.

We went to Olde City, down town, shopping area, and the art/threater district.
We stopped to see and hear information along the way.
Did not go to Fabric Row.
But would need a car for purchases anyway!
Art/Theater District looking towards William Penn.

Court Is In Session

Here is a Court House Step design, made with fabric made by Thimble Berry.  
I liked how you had to keep your thoughts in order while constructing this piece.
Each block, created the next color way for the ajoining, top and bottom blocks.

This piece was machine pieced and hand quilted.
The hand quilting added to the antique look of the quilt.
This is not my normal colors nor pattern, so it was a fun to try something new.

Field Of Blooms


This wall quilt is for our local Rotary Club.
This is the 2nd year that I have been asked to be involved in their 
elaborate Fund Raising event.
 I feel a bit honored.  

                                                           A close up of the quilting.

 It didn't stop at the quilt.
Also made a fabric bowl to go with the quilt.

This will not be that last time I make this quilt.
Love the crisp clean look of this quilt.
 I NEED one in my home!
