Thoughts and photos shared by me ... Marcia. I am a professional modern freestyle long arm quilter and a fiber artist, a photographer, and a novice gardener. I love to create quilted items using old and new fabrics. I am also a mother, a daughter, a friend, a wife and a Grandmama! I am a blogger and I share it all here... Welcome!
Welcome new followers and thank you to my current followers!
On April 1st, I will be hosting another Giveaway right here, for my blog followers, as a Thank You for reading my blog. I will again be sharing my Quilt Photo Note Cards!
Plus I am hosting a Giveaway on my Crafty Sewing Facebook Page -- see link in the side bar.
I love sharing photos of my quilting, my quilt projects, my plants, and all the things that inspire my quilting. This is one of my favorite quilts that was inspired by my container garden. It was the first bloom that appeared last summer. I took a photo and then created a quilt.
This is the photo of the first Morning Glory Bloom that was my inspiration for the quilt.
Today's prizes are the Orange Flower Note Cards for three lucky winners! The inspiration for the Note Cards came from a quilt...
Several years ago, I did some thread painting on a batik fabric with my long arm quilting machine. I had a blast stitching each flower! After taking several photos, I chose it for my quilting logo.
I took some photos with and without the flash to see what would look best. Look how it changes the colors.
I made a magazine bag, a checkbook cover, and a table topper from the thread painted piece of fabric.
It all started with me taking time to play - Minutes for Me! I thread painted on fabric at the end of my quilting day...
