My new fabrics were delivered.  I really like the colors, and they are available to order here Angelia*A.  You can see some linen and hand dyed fabrics this weekend at the Tidewater Quilt Guild show in Chesapeake.  It has been a busy spring and many more things coming up,  working on many new pattern and fabric  designs.

Even though it is winter I still love the soft, muted colors of the yard and garden.  We have been talking and planning for some changes in the outdoor space for next year, slways on the look out for ways to make it more sustainable and add more food to the household.  Looking forward to a the new year with many ideas.  Hope you all have a fun New Years Eve!  See you next year.

New Fabric Designs for Spring 2014

Posted on December 11, 2013 by

It has been a learning fall for me.  I am trying to convert my hand drawn design ideas to the computer on Adobe Illustrator.  In my past career I did a lot of Autocad technical work, it is one thing to make straight lines and measurements and all that using a computer and mouse, it is so tricky for me to make my hand drawings look the way I want on the computer.  The boys did buy me a Wacom tablet that lets you draw directly on the screen.  I am finally feeling a little more comfortable using it.  It is still not quite the same, but if I want to have my designs printed on fabric,in large quantities, I will continue on, it is never too late to learn something new, anyway.Mod-Tear-Drop-grey-1 Tiny-Layered-Circles

I have been super busy getting ready for the Buyers Market show next week.  I am finally getting some of the images up from our photo shoot.  The girls did a great job and everything turned out so beautiful. Debbie’s photograpy work always great.   Looking forward to showing all my new work.

Hand Quilting

Posted on July 27, 2012 by

A friend ask me last week about hand quilting.  She had received a donated, unfinished quilt and needed it for the Art League fund raiser auction.  I do some had work, but have never completed a whole quilt.  I started looking about on line and found some beautiful examples of hand quilting in modern design form.

The time involved seems daunting to me to do a a large quilt, but I will included some hand stitching and quilting in some of my smaller projects.  It is great practice for all sewing skills and I use it in my teaching.  This summer in turning out to be full of inspiration and new up coming creative adventures. More ideas coming soon.

This beautiful detail is from Victoria at Silly BooDilly.  I have followed her work for a while and really love her color sense, and the hand quilting is equally amazing.  She has a beautiful collection of work quilts as well.

This is one of the new design I just finished for a rather large hand printed fabric order.  I was interesting to translate a small square piece of collage work into yardage of fabric.  It did give me a lot of inspiration for future designs.  I am currently doing a lot of “playing” with surface design, and will soon have some 1/2 yards and fat quarters on line for sale.

Always on the lookout for fashion/color/design inspiration I found this article in the New York Times and it showcases a collaboration of sorts.  It is surprising how some people get together in thier work.  I work with SA a lot but we are in our own style in design.  I would like to find an artisan to work on a project, someone with a different style as well as media could create and interesting challange. This is a great combination, and so much interesting color and pattern.  So, who would you love to collaborate with in you work?
