New project

I showed you these fabrics a few weeks ago and they have morphed into this project. I looked and looked at books and pictures and then finally I decided half-square triangles would do the trick. Sometimes simple is the best solution.

And one more California Girl, Scooter
I've been doing a lot of water coloring, more on that later.

California Girl Finished!

 Not a very "fall" looking quilt, but fall is here!
This is the back. I try to use all the leftovers that I can in the backing. I loved this fabric when I first saw it, in retrospect it is a little old fashioned for me, but when I added some of my hand dyes to the front I liked it a little more. The spinning stars are all hand dyed fabrics. It turned out pretty, with  lots of  curlicues and squiggles in the quilting.

Check Out That California Girl!

Almost ready to quilt! California Girl fabric and California Girl taking the pic!

Coffee Mug to Quilt

I stared at this mug for over a year in my classroom. It looked like fabric every time I looked at it. One day I will make a quilt that resembles it, I said to myself. And I did. It was some piecing and some fusing. Fun to make.
