I’m happy to share that these two quilts will be showing at PIQF next month!
This was inspired by the very loud and colorful wild parrot flock that are often spotted within San Francisco. I am amazed that these escaped family pets have rediscovered their wild roots in our urban landscape.
My inspiration for this quilt is my delightful son, who is a college physics major. He enthusiastically shares all that he is learning upon his visits home – including trying to help me understand the basics of physics, and in this case, protons: a positively charged particle that resides within the atomic nucleus.
I was excited to learn that “Quilt Melt” has been selected to be judged at World Quilt New England XVI in Manchester, New Hampshire, August 16-18! My first time venturing beyond local shows or trying to get into QuiltCon (the latter of which I’ve been unsuccessful so far.)#modernquilt #modernquilting #mqg #worldquiltnewengland
A recent trip with family yielded much inspiration for quilting. I couldn’t wait to get back home to start ripping up fabric strips from my stash to make something! My husband, kids (both home from college for the weekend) and my brother, sister-in-law and nephews had a wonderful weekend hiking around Monterey Bay as well as making a quick trip to the Monterey Aquarium. The colors in the water around the coast are mesmerizing. This is what I’ve started the first afternoon. We’ll see where it goes….
Looking for something to put over the fireplace, I recently created this quilt from my vast collection of batik fabrics. I have a soft spot in my heart for those batiks. After I finished it I learned that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg claimed to be a “flaming feminist.” I like the sound of that. Here’s to the Notorious RBG.
Well, it’s not ACTUALLY new – almost a year ago I started to draft this post and realized I never hit publish. I have been remiss by not keeping up on the QuiltingintheFog.com blog, opting to use Instagram as my preferred way to track my work. Anyhoo – I adore this quilt! I drink in all of the colors every morning and evening as I gaze upon it. Best of all, making this quilt yielded tons of scraps and tiny pieced bits that I’ve used in several other quilts since this was finished. A shout out to #tarafaughnan who provided the inspiration for the #barquilt.
New Bed Quilt for us!
Keeping with my New Years Resolution to sew only what I have and NOT add more fabric to my hoard…I pulled out my technicolor scrap pile and created this quilt using foundation piecing. Not really having an overall plan or any idea how it would turn out, I must admit I LOVE it! The oblong bricks create an exciting energy. It practically screams at you! I’m quilting it now. #scrapquilting
