One of the better decisions in my life was to join the QuiltArt list a few years ago. I had no desire to do traditional quilting but I love working with fabric and this group really pushes the envelope and encourages creativity and thinking out of your box. They recently celebrated their 15th year with a Quinceanera challenge. We were to make a 15"x15" fiber piece celebrating QA. I decided to step out of my box and make a piece based on some photographs that were taken by a friend of mine. I have in mind to do a larger piece based on cave and rock art in the future and this was sort of a way for me to get my toes wet and see if I could actually do something like this. This idea is still percolating in my brain and maybe one day it will see the light of day. In the meantime, here is the piece I made for this challenge.
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.
