AQM and cleanup progress

My quilt "White on Black #3" is in Oberlin, OH at the Artist as Quiltmaker show. The show opens on May 15 so if you are in the Ohio area stop in and take a look.

Here's a link for more information;

Studio B cleanup is progressing, the floor in the back is now visible and I can get to the big white board. The best part is that my sweet husband borrowed a pickup and took away the six 5 gallon cans of paint and the dozen smaller cans of paint that were in the space when we bought it 11 years ago. I'm not done and the room looked worse for a while.

This is not how to store quilts!

Look, a floor!

I now need to take a trip to the dollar store and pickup some more pool noodles and make covers and bags for a few of the quilts. The back part is clean, now I need to move forward and work on the front. I promise more progress next week.

The Weekly Leaf

I did no printing at all this week, the table was covered with stuff. Instead I traced a leaf onto freezer paper, ironed the freezer paper to my hand dyed fabric and stitched around the leaf.

Week #19

Daily stitching updates

Gelli Prints #124-#130

Shades of Orange #51-#57

  1. Another beautiful leaf!!!! I have started mine! Woohoo...but no work for over 4 weeks due to flareup of my RA..had more tests and x-rays last week...on new meds and just might get back to some hand work in another week or too!!! Your work is wonderful and so inspiring!

  2. I like the variegated thread that you used for the leaf. Cleaning up is such a chore, but you'll love it when it's done.I cleaned out my studio closet awhile ago and every time I walked into it I was pleasantly surprised.

  3. And I think the leaf is as wonderfully effective without printing.

  4. Cleaning out a studio is so therapeutic. It always leads me to new ideas and inspiration, too. Nice asymmetrical work around the leaf.

  5. I love your White Ob Black; in fact, I pinned it about 3 minutes ago when I saw it on the SAQA blog.
