Fabric cookies on Ellen Lindner's blog:

Have You Ever Heard of Fabric Cookies?


Me neither – until I invented them.

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.

Is it Hot in Here, or is It Just Me? An improvisational art quilt by Ellen Lindner.

New Work:  Is It Hot in Here or is It Just Me?

After making a quilt with orange and fuchsia, it was just begging for a title about heat.

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.

What’s New

I’m anxiously awaiting my local TV debut on Quilting Arts TV!  Check your PBS station to see when it might be on in your area.  I’m in season 1900, episodes 1902, 1908, and 1913.  I can’t wait!!!

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.
