Little Monsters in the Waved Icarus Design is our latest Featured Fabric. Little Monsters because one day I noticed that many monsters and critters on kids fabric were this color. And Waved Icarus Design reminds me of all the new growth sprouting.

Inspired to Create!

Playing_With_SnowI have posted this wall-hanging before.  But just to recap many of you said you couldn’t cut you Snow Dyed Fabric.  I chose the fabric and my sister Karen put this together for me.  And many of you have fallen in love with the idea.  Recently I was delighted to see what was inspired by a yard of Snow Dyed Fabric and the Pavers pattern.

Snow_Dyed_QuiltKarin Rainer calls her creation, “Can’t Cut That Fabric”.  I think I’m in LOVE!  Now I have all sorts of new ideas rolling around in my head.  Just wait and see.

Snow Dying Wonderland

Yes, we had snow for a month.  It started with beautiful fluffy powder.  Then it hung around and turned into ice, also referred to as Cascade Concrete.EvergreenWe even ended up with some beautiful Hoar Frost.
FrostI put all of that hard icy snow to good use.  You guested it, Snow Dying.
Snow_PileYep, my pile of yet to be ironed Snow Dyed Fabrics.  WOW!  I did create some beauties.  You can find them on my website.  I am still ironing and will be adding more to tempt you.

Orchid is a wonderful rich color.  After about a month with show on the ground I am already dreaming of Summer and beautiful colors bursting out of the ground.  Sigh!, guess it’s going to be a long Winter.  Orchid Hand marbled in the Freestyle Design.Orchid_Freestyle

Goodwill Save!


Karen Nickelson found this orphaned wallhanging at the Goodwill.  Felt like the very light center looked like a bullseye, a distraction from the beautiful colors.  Hummm! Here’s her solution.


She chose Shiva Iridescent Paintstiks and a stencil to help add some interest, texture and color to the center.  Helped to pull the piece together.  And yes she got the paintstiks and stencil from www.marbled-arts.com  Can’t wait to see what it look like quilted.


While cleaning out and organizing old photos I found some lost treasures.  This wonderful chicken wall-hanging was created by Karen Nickelson.  She used my hand marbled fabric to give the chickens some feathers and texture without having to cut out each feather.
