It’s good sometimes to experiment, to step outside what one usually does and try something new, to stretch one’s creative muscles. I’m doing just that this week, in preparation for a few short segments I’ll be shooting for episodes of Quilting Arts TV in a few weeks. (We shoot Series 1700 in Cleveland, Ohio, then.) 

The photo at the top of this post shows a little sample of fabric that’s been quilted and then painted. The shot below shows quilting on a piece of fabric I created using soy wax batik years ago. This is for a segment on mark making.  

Series 1700 is packed with wonderful quilt artists, fiber artists, and surface designers. I'll be sharing photos from the set on Facebook and Instagram during the shoot; you can find me here:


And I’ll do a big round-up of all the photos and stories on my blog here after I get back!

Merry and Bright

My “Merry and Bright” painted and quilted wallhanging is featured in Quilting Arts Holiday magazine! If you can’t find it on a local newsstand, you can purchase it here for $14.99. The magazine is also available as a digital download.
