poppy art quilt ~

good morning all ~

lately, i've been working fervently on class samples, this time for  timeless quilts from missoula, montana, as i've been asked to teach an art quilt class this early november, where we will be focusing on bobbin play, and i'm very excited to about it! how fun!
 any art quilt... well, my favorite kind of art quilt, begins with apiece of hand dyed fabric {this beauty is called the navajo gradient} from vicki welsh!!!  yay!  and a lovely, so very elegant stencil by rebeccabaer.com.  beautiful-beautiful!
 and i'm customizing it!  just look at these possiblities, with a stencil and paintstiks... grape and watermelon.  yummy.  this is not a quick process... a bit messy, and lots of scrubbing action with a stencil brush... but the results?  priceless!!  lol
 and a pretty spectacular background calls for a spectacular motif.  a large-scale print of a poppy.  {forgot to get a picture of the whole fabric}... slightly cut up, rearranged, and embellished, of course.  here's a shot of my auditioning:

 and now for the finishing touches... free motion quilting, of course. my favorite thing to do.
if you're living in montana {or want to travel there lol!}, this class is happening on saturday, november 8th, at timeless quilts and friends on reserve street, 10-4pm. {406-542-6566} we're going to explore lots of embellishment, bobbin play, and couching to create your own one-of-a-kind styled art quilt.

it's gonna be a good time!!

soli deo gloria!

Angelina Fibers

Ahhh... Angelina - fibers, that is.  Forget Angelina Jolie... these fibers are the real stars!    
Translucent, iridescent and beautiful combinations are yours for the making!



Just a quick 5 seconds or so with an iron!  Heat those fibers longer, and they will change to a darker color... which you may be after?!
PRESTO!  They bond to themselves, and you can peel them right off of the teflon sheet (or parchment paper or tissue paper).

and... instant gratification, I might add!
The sky's the limit... so 'get you some'!  (borrowed from Toby Keith song!) 

Tomorrow I'm finally ready to reveal my completed "Summer Shimmer" quilt that showcases Angelina fibers, Textiva film and bobbin play with free motion quilting.
In Great Falls, you can easily purchase Angelina fibers and Textiva sheets at our  Bernina Silver Thimble.   Get more ideas and lots of cool inspiration in this book; still in print, I believe! I'm pretty sure there is an update too... I think I remember seeing a newer book called "Between The Sheets With Angelina" --- can't say it's not a clever title, but I will say... NO MORE!
