I've been working the last week or so on evening bags. Here's one of the most recent. It's made of free motion quilting over satin and just big enough for the essentials along with your symphony tickets.

For the month of April, I have the honor of being "artist of the month" for Skagit Artists Together. This is a diverse group of artists. Take a look!

Co-op show, Fidalgo Island Quilters

Hi all,

The last couple of weeks I've been finishing up pieces for a local co-op show of 27 artists. This is a great show for the month of April. We're set up in a local winery, next to the tasting room. (Tulip Valley Winery & Orchard, Mount Vernon, WA)I have lots of new bags and a few new wall pieces. The first photo is of Azzurro, 6x6", hand painted silk and free hand machine quilting. (Teeny tiny quilting)

This weekend was also the Fidalgo Island Quilters biennial quilt show. More than 350 quilts and wearables were displayed. I had two quilts, a jacket and two bags displayed. Blueberry Dream (jacket) and Tokyo (evening bag)are here. I'll share more later.
