This month's challenge was about the beautiful Aurifil thread colors and of course, the also beautiful Island Batik fabrics. We were to use the Aurifil for quilting, shading, dimension, and just general fun. I decided to start with an appliqué shape and see how I could enhance with the thread. The fabric I choose for… Continue reading Thread Painting

This month was a big step out of my box: it has been a long time since I made any bags or large project, besides a quilt, so I was very glad for the great instructions and video tutorials provided By Annie.

The beautiful greens and blues made me think of days spent canoeing on the Wacissa river here in Tallahassee, Florida. Sarah called… Continue reading Tumbleweeds in River Valley Fabric
