Guest Blogger on Subversive Stitchers

I have been asked to be a guest blogger on the Subversive Stitchers Blog, and I jumped at the invitation.

After asking Dawn what she might like me to write about, she gave me some thoughts…

“I have no specific direction although you have great experience with publishing books, winning awards, being part of the quilt community, I would imagine you have much to share. I always enjoy being surprised at what my guests bring to the blog. So whatever you want to write as long as it relates to fabric art.”

So I thought I’d ask my readers… What would YOU like to have me write about? Please drop me a comment under this post before Feb. 25th and I will take your ideas into consideration. AND, because Feb. 25th is my birthday, I will randomly select one person’s name from those who respond and send them a “It’s my birthday” surprise. Make sure I know how to contact you if you are selected!

Now, please leave my blog and go visit Subversive Stitchers Blog, It’s one of my favorites!

Appliqué and Embroidery

DSC00023

DSC00024I love the look of applique and embroidery together, don’t you?  These are a few close-ups that were requested by one of my Facebook friends in the group Amazing Appliqué.  They are from my quilt “Floral Star of Bethlehem.”  

These aren’t the greatest photos, but they show four different parts of the quilt.  I wish I had a wall large enough to hold this quilt.  Alas, I don’t, and it sits on a shelf in the closet collecting dust.  Maybe someday! DSC00022 DSC00021
