A Peek inside *My Studio*

My studio *on a budget* was featured in the latest issue on Quilting Arts Magazine . I am on page 20!

This issue is full with wonderful articles.

Paducah Fall 2018 *Quilts*

The first thing I do during a *Quilt show* is to go and admire the quilt display. It's always magical to see so much talent under one roof.
This year in Paducah it was no different. Here are some pictures of the quilting art that caught my attention:




Quiltweek at Paducah Workshops



Just a few pictures of one my classes during QuilWeek in Paducah Kentucky. I had a wonderful time with wonderful students!
Although I forgot to take more class pictures I did have some time to walk through the Show and will post photos of some of the quilts they had on display.
What an intense and fantastic experience  I had. Thank you AQS for having me and letting me be part of your faculty this year.

Art-Cloth with *Recycled Newspaper*

Above are *details* from my latest work. An Art-Cloth study with *Paper*.

This is an Art-Cloth which has been painted, resisted, dyed and Infused with recycled newspapers, a technique I developed and called INC (Infused Newsprint Cloth).

The challenge for me was to obtain a soft, washable, pliable and easy to sew fabric. This is not an easy task, especially after the addition of several layers of dyes and paints plus the application of paper.
I am pleased with the results! This is a 32 inches by 32 inches piece of cotton. Now that I know it works I am already planning my next project.

*Paper and Fabric Collage*

This is a paper and fabric mixed media art. I used This technique to appliqué the recycled paper.
It all started with hand-dyed and hand-printed fabrics. Purple, red and green color dyes has been used for the solid color cloth.

After I designed my own silk-screen, grey was used to imprint the white fabric with lettering. Then, magazine clippings were laminated, cut in the leaf shape and sewn in place by hand.
Close up.
I will offer this as a *NEW* workshop.
