MORE FIBER ARTISTS

Marg Ed made this fabric paper. I love the project, just not sure how it is done. She said she took a piece of muslin, applied glue and various weights of papers to get this wonderful effect. She said that Gail Conlan will be teaching a class on how to make fabric paper in the fall. Looks like something I’m going to want to do.

Barb made this beautiful wallhanging and entered it in the MARIE OSMOND QUILTING CHALLENGE sponsored by Janome America, Inc., Quilting Treasures, and Advantus. The contest said you had to use the Marie Osmond Quilting Treasures fabric. This picture doesn’t do it justice so….

Here is a close up of some of the detail on the project. She did a fantastic job! (You can click on the picture to get an even closer look.)

Eileen Madison made this quilt for her niece as a housewarming gift. As you can see she still has to apply the binding, but it is going to be a fantastic gift. These soft muted colors will go with any décor and something any new homeowner will be proud to own.

Ever wondered how many charm squares you need to make the size quilt you want. Check this out here.

Until next time,

Hi Caroll,
Thank you for your e-mail comment. I hadn't realized I won the drawing until you mentioned it cuz I got home late.

Also, thanks for showing us what the art quilters have been doing! Sounds like a fun group!!

Take care.
