I am a quilter, fibre artist, musician & gardener. My blog will follow mostly these activities with a few fun ones tossed in here and there. Please let me know if you find something you like.

Textured Book Page
Our ArtCGirlz group has been involved in a project where we are each making a small piece that will eventually become a page in a book we are creating. We decided to take a picture - either one we took or from a magazine, crop a small portion and make that into a small quilt. The challenge was to interpret it in "texture".
This is my finished piece:
The finished pieces are attached to upholstery samples which conveniently have all these grommets for assembling the page. I used cottons, corduroys, silks, sheers, upholstery fabrics, beads and metallic stitching.
This is a picture of a light on the ceiling in the karaoke room on our cruise ship last fall.
This is the one portion of the light that I decided to use and shrunk down even further.
This is the final picture, that I used to interpret my piece shown above.
