My recent endeavor

4"x 10" Dahlia Quilt
I have been working very hard on my class projects for November scheduled classes. Got them all mailed out yesterday. Did do a small quilt with some painting.  As a result of our macro class a couple of months ago, I painted (with seta color on fabric) the center of a Dahlia flower I photographed  as a close-up here in Oregon.  I bordered it and continued the quilting of the flower and leaves into the borders.

Kind of in a creative slump right now, trailer is getting a little confining and weather has been cool and overcast everyday.Tried some watercolor in m sketchbook the other day and just wanted to trash it! All will pass - hopefully weather will change - I like Oregon in the summer, but this year it is really different, cold and misty most of the time. Everyone enjoy the Long Beach show.

  1. Marilyn, that is just beautiful! You are amazing! I love it! It gives me a good idea for a new quilt, thanks for sharing! I love how you used our macro project and turned it into fabric and then let the edges disappear into another fabric with just thread lines! Beautiful!!
