This is the year I have decided to buckle down and do more than just piddle. I want to work on my techniques and get more serious about my art. This piece, The Path Not Taken, is the first of I hope several larger (for me) pieces that I hope to complete this year. It is 42" x 45". I would like to be able to enter some shows, other than local ones, so I need to focus more on actually working on my art. I am happy with the way this one came out, including my stitching. The majority of fabrics in this quilt are my own hand dyed and Shibori pieces. There are 3 small pieces of commercial fabric and one small piece of silk from Jane Steinberg. I have done some hand embroidery on here as well as machine stitching. I think I threw everything at this! It is appliqued with trapunto, and stenciled using paint and paint stiks. The piece has a story but I will save that for another time. I have screwed up my courage and have entered this into 2 shows. I could use some luck.
I am a retired Interior Designer who gravitated over to quilting. I have gotten into Art Quilts and fiber art as they fit my personality better. I currently live in Arizona where the sunsets are spectacular. I will miss my helper, Sammy.
I have fallen in love with dyeing my own fabrics. I just love being a mad scientist at times.
