Quilting into Fall

Angelia Armstrong

I have been involved in several new quilting/fabric projects lately.  Met with textile designer Alison Glass talking about designing fabric and Quilt Market, she was most helpful and I hope a new friend in the art community.  Our Peninsula Modern Quilt Guild is planning a quilt show this fall, so have been working with them and looking forward to that event.

Our new school season at RSA start next week and I have many new ideas for my students.  I love the pillows in the photo from the summer sewing club, great job Mary, Amy and Rose.

Modern Plaid

Angelia Armstrong

I am painting plaids.  Planning a quilt for J and looking for plaid fabrics, surprisingly, not many interesting ones available.  My plan is to paint the designs on silk scarves then, use the ones that work for this project and turn them into “screens” for printing on cotton.

Really like these plaid stairs found them at Matters of Style

Another plaid-not the colors for J but an interesting interpretation.

House Art

mow that lawn!

It has been crazy, busy around here with many things going on this fall.  School has started and I have three classes so a lot of planning has been happening.  My lesson plans always take a lot of prep, since I am teaching fiber art and design.  While looking around for a “little” house project for my older students I found some great work out there by some creative artists.

There is a quilt event that I will be working coming in a few weeks, more on that soon.

Studio

Angelia Armstrong

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.

Modern Quilt Fabric

Angelia Armstrong

My creation
I am finally getting some shots of this fabric group.  I have a new quilt pattern I am working on and this is the fabric I was able to use on of my print designs as well as the commercial fabrics.  The yellow is not a color I use that often, but I do like it with the black, cream, and grey. I have a couple of yards of the “Round and Round” print left and will have it available in my shop soon.

I also have a class coming May.

Natural Landscape

Angelia Armstrong

My yard is kind of a mess.  It has been a couple of seasons since much of anything has been done except mow the “weeds” lawn and some pruning.   The soil here isreally bad-red clay here in the South, and I don’t use chemicals or want the waste a lot of water to have a perfect green lawn. Natural landscape plants and rock gardens are slowing going to take the place of just grass.  I have been doing some research and found this great resource, houzz.  You can set up your own ideabook. This photo is great example of working with the area you have, it is beautiful.  Baby steps this year.

Fashion Friday

Angelia Armstrong

Finished and new vest/tunic for myself.  I found this unique fabric, and the design works with skirts or pants.  I get inspired for clothing, is spurts, working on a top now, more for summer.

Saturday art opening for my friend Sandy at Shooting Star and JA plays in the  RSA school concert in the evening, still hope to get some sewing in this weekend.

Do you have any weekend, craft/sewing projects going on?
