Butterfly Dreamin' Art Quilt done in Sheerplique
I am always trying to create something new and different with my favorite medium . Fabrics and the last 10 years I have become drawn in by what I can do with sheer fabrics. Such as my PAS technique or my latest fabric adventure, Sheerplique(C)2014llc, something a little different with spectacular results. Art quilts that will glow. A friend of mine wanted a quilt just for her and that is how the Jelly Fish quilt came about, the previous post is about that. But now from that 7 month adventure I was able to take that technique and go farther than I had imagine. This Piece that I am calling Alice's Palace for now is 20 by 30 inches and the bottom photos were taken while it hung in a window. I love the way this looks and works...the top Butterfly is a collage of fabrics and is free laying on the face of the quilt, which is multiple layers of sheers. Have a wonderful day and if you have questions email me . I am working on other designs, birds, bees, fish and otters.
All of my Art quilts are created with the help of my faithful sewing machine "Stitches" A Brother SQ 9050, love my sewing machines and have sewn only on Brother Machines for the last 30 plus years.

- Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
