Woven felt

   I am continuing to use felt in different iterations.  This time, quilted, layered, stitched and woven, mounted on a gallery canvas.  The weaving is so inticing…let’s go larger!  Happy Holidays…from the studio

Finished

  I have finished my fused quilt!  I am pleased with how easily it quilted and how flat it finished.  The pieces do not look separate and layered…much to my surprise.   When I finished the quilting, I thought it

  This is a detail image of a quilt I completed a few weeks ago.  I have submitted it to a jury, so I do not want to show the entire piece until I know its fate…EITHER accepted or rejected.
