Stop and smell the flowers!

I have been working on wall hangings. Basically mini quilts with a focal point. I head back to driving a school bus a week from today. My goodness where did the summer go? Any ways before starting back to work I'm trying to get some inventory ready for a high end fun Hyde Park Street Fair in Sept. My parents have always done well with their Native American items. Last year mom and I added a few of our quilted items and sold them out. So this year with a larger booth we will be filling it with more quilted items.

I haven't been on line much still having trouble with the computer it takes so long and frustrates me. THANK YOU ALL THAT LEAVE COMMENTS! I am unable to reply individually.
This is my first boquet of flowers applique. It took forever to design but the fabric really made it. Super size the picture to see the details.
Ok for those of you that have known me for a few years I had to bring in another chicken. They are so very popular that I am sure I will be makeing more of these guys, they make me smile.
I have been influanced so much by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston's book Collaboratrive quilting and their "Parts Department".


  1. Whimsical and gorgeous work! I love the flowers. Great design and use of fabrics!

  2. I have never thought of doing applique but seeing yours makes me want to try it. I love the chicken wall hanging, so much detail. Of course I love Gwen and Freddy too.

  3. Love the wall hangings. Seems like great minds think a like. I have several that I am getting ready to sew up.

  4. Nice art, but i am expecting something in light colors.
