Hummingbird Art Quilt

This little art quilt started with the 4 prairie points in the middle that I put on the purple background for contrast. They looked like mountains to me so then I started building it from there. The border is crazy quilt blocks or "made fabric".

 It is machine quilted with some hand quilting.

Size is 18" x 24"

Pinwheel Poppy Sprouts

Dreaming about Spring made me think of red pinwheels. I saw my make believe flowers coming out of sprout leaves. Poppies generally grow in big groups from all their seeds so this is my interpretation of seeing a field of poppies.

I added hand stitchery which I love for texture.This was a great project while traveling on vacation.
 Size 10" x 10"

Spoonflower Fabrics

I love Spoonflower which is a site for anyone that wants to design a fabric online and upload it to Spoonflower. Then they will print the fabric on several different fabric options and lengths. 

I recently bought some calendar towel prints from their design challenge. There are so many amazing designs that it was hard to choose. Here are some of them that I ordered in cotton-linen.

They just need to be hemmed with a double fold and then washed to bring out the softness. Make the kitchen cheery!

I may have to give it go one of these days....
