During our April residency for the last few years we concentrate on making all new work for our booth at shows for the coming year. This year was no different; however our time in Paducah was shorter, we then taught in Peoria, Ill, came home and left soon for Spring Quilt Market, returned home long enough to repack boxes and leave for QSDS in Columbus, Ohio. Whew!!!! No wonder I didn't post anything.
We have been trying to show how we use our products in Home Dec, Quilts, Garments, 3-D pieces and Mixed Media. The first 2 photos are of new pillow designs and the patterns are available on our website.
Flower Basket Pillow;
This pillow uses burlap and osnaburg in Heather; a new color introduced at market. The flower basket is wool applique, using Mary Flanagan Woolens.
Tuscan Bird Pillow;
We used Mint Hand-dyed Burlap for this pillow, scraps from our stash of commercial fabrics in shades of "tuscan" and "butternut", because like many of you...we cannot resist shopping for fabric everywhere we go. The embroidery was all done using our hand-dyed floss and perle cottons.
