Frida Kahlo Tile

Experimenting with painting on tile. I just doodled Frida Kahlo and painted her on tile, which I found to be very awkward.  It’s very different from painting on canvas. And, you never know how it will turn out until it’s been fired. Despite it all, I think she came out kinda cute 🙂

Community Service Quilt

I found these cute teddy bear blocks at our Guild shop.  They were in various stages of completion.  I took the five most completed blocks, finished them and made a baby quilt for community service.  I love working on baby quilts! – so cute and small 🙂

Ceramics Class

After months of effort, I finally have something to show.  Yes, I do other things creative besides quilting.  I have been having fun making whatever catches my fancy with clay the last few months.  Since I don’t have my own ceramics studio, it has been slow going.  Nevertheless, I’m happy with my first batch of […]

A Wedding Tablecloth

Muriel’s daughter recently got married.  I thought it would be fun to design fabric from Muriel’s artwork, and sew up a tablecloth as a wedding gift.  Her favorite color is orange, so I picked Muriel’s Orange art, designed a repeating pattern, and uploaded to Spoonflower.  I found orange fabric with an orange peel look to […]
