Tea and spice dye art quilt final lesson finished !

Hey i finished my final lesson for my tea and spice dyeing class which was to make something using some of our dyed fabrics.  I did not bother dying larger pieces i used all my samples that were left and made this small art quilt.  i pieced the back ground then made a flower from the pinks and purples and yellow and thread painted to add highlights.

A Creative Week !

I am so pleased with myself this week, i have been creating almost every day and thought i would share a little of what i have been doing.  I mentioned about my online classes i signed up for and i started the Tea and Spice dyeing class at quilt university and after lesson one  i achieved some interesting results.

I also managed to work on my crazy patch using some of the tast stitches and a little silk ribbon embroidery  which was fun.

I managed a few  journal pages as well so yes all in all a very creative week !!

crazy quilting and classes

Hi everyone, back from my trip and missing the sunshine,  i did get my first crazy patch made up from my embroidery guild class and i have just started stitching.  Our next class is learning some silk ribbon flowers looking forward to that !  I want to do all creams and gold and i will be adding more lace etc as i get going.

I have also just signed up for three quilt university classes i got my first lesson today on my first class which is Dyeing with tea and spices with Marjie  McWilliams looks like a lot of fun it's a three week class, so i will post some of my work once i get started making my samples.

The second class which starts on feb 17th is Artist Toolbox with Lyric Kinard a four week class excited for this one ! and the third one is Darned quilts with Dena Crain which is also a four week class and starts on feb 24th so i guess i will be busy for the next few weeks with all these projects on the go.
