Simply Moderne Magazine #9* My latest Article*

*Rainbow Flowers* 90cm -35 1/2 inches-
 
My latest article is out! I am on page 96 in the French magazine Simply Moderne number 9. In the article I teach you how to use liquid paint with hand-carved stamps.
 
It is a unique technique to achieve rainbow images on cloth.
You can also paint silk scarves or...
... a whole length of cloth like the one shown here.
This is a close up picture of the finished quilt. I used Aurifil LANA thread with the hug stitch!
I hope you will try it and have as much fun as I did :)

 

*Embrace who you are* Part One

I am challenging myself on making a pieced quilt! It is for a very special person. I want her not only to feel the warmth when she uses it but also to receive the message *Embrace who you are*.
 
With that in mind, after the fabrics have been hand-dyed I made a series of screens with letters, numbers, polka dots and one with the message: Embrace who you are. I used them to print with thickened dyes and with opaque paints all over the cloth. 

Afterwards, I used the book "Quilt Talk" by Sam Hunter to construct the word embrace. This is my first time doing paper piecing. The book's instructions were easy to follow even for a beginner like me!

I also wanted to include a heart shape. I made this block inspired by the Tuesday hearts by Quiltmania
Stay tuned for my next post where I will show you my pieced blocks!
Thanks for stopping by.

My Workshops at the International Quilt Festival

 
 
Standing proud in front of my finalist whimsical quilt *BLUE DODO* at the International Quilt Festival.
 
I returned from Houston with happy memories in my heart.


Even though it was a lot of work to prepare a workshop (materials, samples..) it was well worth it because I love to teach!
 I want to thank you, each of my students who came to my classes and demos. You made it fun!

I also had time to play. Meeting with old and new friends.
Thank you *Omnigrid* for the generous swag bag.
 
In my next post I will show you some of the beautiful quilts I saw at the show.
