EGAD in Bloom

 I was very happy with my first vending experience, at EGAD in Bloom.  It was definitely a LOT of work, but it was also a lot of fun.  This photo shows my display.  The room was a little dark, but an overhead light happened to shine exactly on my two center quilts. Click any image […]

Tags That Tell a Story

In preparation for my upcoming vending event, I’m making price tags for everything.  At first, I followed the typical exhibit-style wording, listing just dimensions and materials.  But then I thought “Is that what people really want to know?”  I asked myself the question, “If I were standing next to someone admiring this piece, what would […]

Prepping to be a Vendor

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you know a lot of my art features Florida foliage.  So, I’ve been thinking I should look for opportunities to show my quilts to flower and plant loving audiences.  As a result, on March 29th and 30th I’ll be doing something completely new (for me:)  I’ll be […]

Prepping for Sticky Fingers Demo

On Saturday, March 13th, I’ll be doing a demonstration of my “Sticky Fingers” technique, in conjunction with my guild’s local quilt show. In preparation for that, I’ve been working on a sample background, which I’ll paint as part of the demo.  The fabrics are mostly white-on-white, with a few black and white thrown in.  Click […]

Cosmo Commission: Getting Started

I’ve been working on a commission piece, featuring cosmos.  I started with this computer sketch: Since this piece is only about a foot square, I was able to use a lot of my scraps.  First, I used them to create the black background.  Then, I tore fabrics to create rows of fuschia on the left.  […]

That’s a Wrap!

Did I mention I was going to do a TV interview?  Well, last night was the night.  After lots of preparation with my co-interviewee, Dij Pacarro, we were anxious to talk about fiber art on “Focus on Art,” a local show. It ended up being rather fun, and we were both pleased with it.  (Although we haven’t […]
