Silent Auction Quilt-Houston Exhibit

Since I lost my old Blog when my new website was created, I'm going to duplicate a couple of my more recent posts. I wanted to share the small hankie quilt that will be up for bidding at the Silent Auction booth at the upcoming Houston International Quilt Festival.  This started out as a beautiful hankie that I stabilized with Bosal stabilizer first before placing it on top of Radiance fabric.  I quilted this with Superior Threads' Kimono Silk and used Hobbs Tuscany Wool batting and quilted it to death!  The background grid used the "baby" triple grid stencil from...

Featuring Linen Lady ~ Ramona Resurreccion!

My third Featured Linen Lady is Ramona Resurreccion.  She was originally from the Philippines and migrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1988 with her three children.  She stumbled upon a quilt show in Melbourne in 1995 and never looked back.  She has taught quilting and makes 7-8 exhibition quilts a year not counting the ones for her grandchildren!  Ramona will be traveling all the way from Australia to be at the show and I can hardly wait to meet her in person.  I am in awe of the beautiful work she has shared with me and can't wait to see her...

Featuring Linen Lady~Karen Azevedo

  Karen Azevedo is my first Featured Quilter for the Love of Linens exhibit in Houston.  I first met her "on line" and we quickly became very good friends. I've had the pleasure of staying in her home in Colorado and couple of times.   She loves vintage linens and lace as much as I do and is completely obsessed with creating fabulous linen wholecloth quilts on her longarm.  I still don't know how she gets the tiniest details so perfect.   One of Karen's favorite handwork projects is French Boutis.  Two layers of  fabric are hand quilted together with...

For the Love of Linens~ Special Exhibit in Houston!

Whew...the new website is up and running and my fabulous team, DK Web Designs, has done an over-the-top job with the design and have been very patient with me getting it all dialed in.  Thank you Heather and Danielle!!! Unfortunately with the new website being launched my old blog was euthanized.  Years worth of inspiration disappeared.  A good friend shared that there may be a way to pull the old blogs into the new website but there just wasn't enough time to do this before the launch.  Soooo, the good news is that I can start fresh, inspire you some...
