Have You Ever Heard of Fabric Cookies?
I needed a way for a statewide quilting organization (SAQA) to thank a smaller group, so I asked members to send me “fabric cookies.” Just little stitched lovelies, about palm or hand-sized. I got a wonderful selection and you can see a bunch of them on this blog post.

New Work: Is It Hot in Here or is It Just Me?
This quilt is rather different for me. First, it’s pieced, something I do only occasionally. Second, I finished it with a binding. I haven’t done that in about 13 years, so I really had to think about the process once again.
I had a lot of fun making this hot little number because the improvisational piecing is addicting! See more about how I did it.
I’m showing an ENTIRE art quilt exhibit on my blog, featuring quilts made by the Florida members of SAQA, (Studio Art Quilt Associates.) Posts one and two are up thus far, with two more to come.
Also, please check out the new student work in the Floral Improv Gallery.
