FIBER ARTIST SHOW AND TELL

Don’t you just love fiber artists? They can take a plain piece of fabric and make so many lovely and unique items with it. You will love the items The Lakeshore Fiber Arts group shared at a recent meeting. Dodie made this eye-catching purse. Notice the intricate beadwork and the vibrant colors.

Evey P. shared this fabric covered clothesline hot pad. She said she made it during a recent class. I’ve seen clothesline items made into bowls, and it was nice to see how thin and flat Evey made this. Click on the picture to get a closer view.

New fabrics are in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. This is Luna Blooms by Clothworks. I love these deep contrasting colors.

Molly’s Place has an excellent feathered star tutorial. You know how piecing is not my favorite thing to do but I might even try this one. Looks great!

Be sure to stop by again to see more from the Fiber Arts group.

Until next time,
Caroll

I love that hot pad! I didn't know you could sew those on the machine! I thought it all would have to be sewn by hand.

Love the hot pad. I think it would be fun to make a rag rug this way. Ahhh....I just need more hours in the day!
