Subject: As some of you know I'm a fabricoholic; here is what I've been up to lately.

Recently I entered my first quilt show and won a second place ribbon and a viewers choice award, very thrilling. The quilt was one I designed so I would have some hand work while travelling in Britain last year and it is the first quilt in the slide show. I've finished several more quilts in the last 6 months, all my own designs. I began dyeing fabric 2 years ago when I couldn't find any green and black fabric for one of my quilts and I got hooked on doing it. The first year I bought 50 yds of fabric to dye figuring that would last me a lifetime and went through it in one year. In March I ordered 150 yds, hope that lasts a bit longer. See the slide show here
The landscape quilts of the tree are a colour exercise one cool and one warm in case you are wondering why two. This design of mine was also printed in a design manual earlier this year.

[> I forgot to mention the remaking of the cushions for the deck chairs which I have been dreading doing, and now relieved that its accomplished, hope they last as long (15 yrs) as the originals. Also put a matching flange on the umbrella. Hasn't the capatcha gotten difficult!! -- PD, 10:33:25 06/06/14 Fri

[> One quilt is prettier than the next, all are amazing..... and the tree is so different from a typical quilt very cool. I cant believe you make outdoor cushions.......I just cant imagine! *g* Yes, one time it took me five times to get it right. -- M&M, 14:07:28 06/06/14 Fri

[> These are beautiful! I just tried sewing a couple of years ago and I've made a bunch of rag quilts because I can only sew in a straight line (sort of). -- M.F., 18:37:59 06/06/14 Fri
