Here is my first square for the “39 Squares” Stitchalong.
I just finished up my two fabric cones for a swap on Cloth Paper Studio Yahoo Group. The idea from these came from Ruth Rae and her article that she did in the Quilting Arts Gifts magazine from 2008. These are a smaller version using a 5 inch by 5 inch of felt as the base and then adding layers of coffee dyed cheesecloth, ribbon, buttons, pearls and fibers and cotton fabric. Very sweet.
Nationally known art journalist Kelly Kilmer will be teaching five classes this coming September in Oregon. Our local art studio, Art on a Lark, will host Kelly with a full weekend of classes. Registration opened today and classes will fill quickly so if you are in the Pacific Northwest and would like to attend one or all of the classes, please contact Helen at Art on a Lark to sign up.
This is a 6 inch by 6 inch square that will be sewn into a small quiltlet.
