June 2019

Summer is emerging but it's hot pad season in my little creative studio space!  These are the perfect size for experimenting and improving my free motion quilting.  So far I've only been making them for gifts but if they catch your fancy and you'd like one, let me know.  They're approximately 8" square and no two are the same.  $21 ea.

 Notice the wonderful 'crinkling' effect of the quilting after being washed and dried.

Blessed . . .
 This one hasn't been washed yet so the fabrics are still smooth.

Vintage Paris
Only the word Vintage has been quilted to stand out.

Hand painted coaster
I took a class from Joanne Sharpe a few years ago and made some 16" samplers.  This was one of them.  I didn't want to make a pillow from it as the colors don't complement my home decor so I decided to cut it up and make a hot pad and coaster set as a gift for my daughter who just moved into a college rental house with a bunch of girlfriends!
