A birthday girl picked out these fabrics and asked me to make an art quilt for her similar to my small purple one...BUT BIGGER!!  of course.

So I told her not to look at the blog until after her bday..cause I wanted to share :)

fabrications2B - now sustainable!

Well, finally....I replaced the carpet in the studio.  Mainly because cleaning those threads from it was a horrible chore, but also because it was a great place to get eco-consious!

Cork!  So far, it's great!!!  Clean, soft on the feet, forgiving and susatainable!

It also gave me a chance to clean up and reorganize.  This room is also a guest room (see the murphy bed?) so I think it's going to work out great.  I also got a chance to bring out my great-grandmother's beautiful rug!

What's next?  Solar powered sewing..... :)

What can we call these?  A "to-go" quilt? "blankie on the run"?
Call it whatever you like, but it will go from bassinet to stroller to bed to carseat to backpack to college (as a pillow of course!)
I remember needing to cut my son's favorite in three sections because the "travel" element didn't work with the orginial big size! 
The 19 x 28 is perfect.  It shoves perfectly next to their head in the carseat or under their head in bed .... and you know exactly what I mean!

I love the Max and Whispers fabric!  It's so fun especially in my "design as you go" concept! I had leftover 3 1/2 random pieces...

These will make fun stroller "schlep along" blankies !

So, it's been a while since I posted some pottery - my other craft that was to encourage my free and whimsical measuring, no math, no rulers,
no straight edges!          

Ha ha...good luck to me!

"It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog!"  and it was my pleasure!
Found this great Beatles fabric and knew it was perfect for Quilts for Kids!

I really didnt have anything planned for these quilts other than staying within the size requirement. After following one pattern from Amy Ellis' book, a stack and slash, basic squares and sashing i just improvised on the backs  - each one is different.

No rules quilting! 
No measuring, just feeling! 

This one is on a small scale (about 12 x 18) and will be a wall hanging with a quilted background ... but this would be phenomenal in a bigger quilt!
