Machine quilted cotton
I have made a few quilts over the years and I thought I would share some. This Blue and White Tea quilt my sister and I made for a family member. This person likes tea, blue and white china and a splash of bright color here-and-there. At the fabric store we picked out all the blues that would go with a tea cup and pot fabric.
This quilt is constructed of squares and occasional four triangles making up a square. To give it a slightly formal touch we made the edging and binding out of a simple stripe.

This copy I drew at the Portland Art Museum in the Graphic Design exhibit hall. The work “Frightened Boy and His Dog” was created by Leonard Baskin in 1954. I found the work interesting. The boy is still with his arms wrapped around him, the hand is open like a gesture of needing help. The dog is unsure, paused – a moment in time. The fear itself is confident, bright, energetic and because we don’t know exactly what it is, frighting.
This weeks topic on Illustration Friday.com is fear. It’s fun to see what other illustrators have posted.

Not being a water-colorist I have found colored pencils that you can brush with water easier to use. The color spread is manageable and you can get a combination of hard and soft color easily.
I managed to get a design job because of this illustration. Just goes to show you that what is in your mind to create will touch someone else’s heart.
Keep making things.

This painting I did with the aid of a magnifying glass and tiny brushes. The subject was derived from a photograph I took one Christmas. A chipmunk had gotten a hold of some holly I had put in a plant arrangement outside. This painting was entered in the Blick Mini Masterpiece Challenge.
This skirt is made using New Look sewing pattern 6492, view B. The fabric used is a visc/poly, yarn-dyed double-knit from France that I bought from Emma One Sock. Great fabric to work with. Very comfortable. Perfect drape. I am going to make more of this pattern. The simple cut really shows off the fabric.

This roomy sweater is made of a visc/poly from France. The Fabric, fair isle in style, is a yarn-dyed double-knit. The back side is a tweedy stripe that makes for an interesting accent. This sweater is so comfy on a cold day – I just love it. This fabric can fuzz and pill so I have chosen to make it a dry clean item.
