A HINT of Something New
On Around the World in 20 Quilts we have a new challenge called "Stellar". We aren't allowed to post the finished work until the three months are up, but you know me, I work fast and once the assignment is given out I am on it. (Just how I worked in college too!) But we are allowed to leave a hint, and I did on that blog, but decided to post here as well. Okay, a hint, a tease of what I am making for my "Stellar" quiltlet. I call it a quiltlet because these are so small! 8" x 11". I am using Angelina fibers, and I did teach myself to hand needle felt using a set of needles I picked up on a trip this summer in Minnesota. There is a marvelous shop there run by Susan Stein, who is an art quilter and so her shop has every art quilters dream fabrics and embellishments and tools. I have her book (one of several she's written) called Fabric Art workshop Exploring Techniques & Materials for Fabric Artists & Quilters.
