Welcome to my quilt studio.
I'm working on a set of Journal Quilts for the IQA show in Houston this fall. We are not supposed to display them ahead of time, but I can show you three of them unfinished. The quilting you see below is based solely on the images in the applique and batik background on the front of the quilt. The free machine embroidery on the piece at right is also based on the imagery in the fragment of commercial batik fabric chosen for that month's quilt.
It has been a most interesting experience and one for which I am profoundly grateful!
