What are you doing to celebrate Canada's 150th? The Canadian Quilters' Association is celebrating by collecting quilts (with a strip of Canada fabric in each block) which will be donated to Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada. As BC Coastal Rep for the Canadian Quilters' Association, I am collecting quilts on Vancouver Island & some from the Fraser Valley. Amrit, Kaleidoscope Quilt Company's owner @ Whippletree Junction & me with the quilts!! Spectacular.
"free thinking" notes from my 2009 sketchbook, which are most helpful in exploring preliminary ideas for an art piece. Rummaging through some upholstery fabric, there was the perfect piece for my project. Copper foil was used to design the K. Washers, bottle cap and buttons are used as embellishments.
Welcome to my Blog! To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday I've created a few celebratory pieces. Pictured below is a puff paint maple leaf painted and stitched to fabric. The brown part is the remainder of the actual leaf used. Notice how well the veins show up. Leaf anatomy is one of my favourite subjects.
