The Process!

Hi! Thank you for viewing my art process! Each piece is an original piece of art created by myself.

The Zentangle inspired art pieces are created with a blank white piece of fabric. Temporary lines are drawn as the base of my art planning. Then I free-hand everything else with black ink and add color with ink or paint.

Once the ink and color are done, I add cotton batting and quilt the piece, sew a fabric border and staple it to a stretched canvas frame.

The photo quilts start with a photo that I have taken of scenes around our Buffalo, NY area. I create my pattern by tracing the colors, shades, and shapes on the picture, enlarge it to the size I want. Using this paper pattern, I cut the big shapes out of fabric and glue each piece on, then sew around each piece to secure the fabric to the base of the quilt.

Then the fun part comes! Painting brings out the specific color that I want as well as the fine details that I cannot achieve with fabric. Lastly, each piece is quilted, sewn fabric border, and stapled onto the stretched canvas frame.

Little known fact……My dad was an upholsterer and he taught me some of the upholstery skills like using a staple gun that I still use today!

My pocket hugs started in January 2021 during the Pandemic. I saw that other people were making this same basic idea of showing someone you care by sending them a token they can touch and hold.

Mine turned out to also include words of positivity and gratitude as well as the Zentangle inspired artwork I draw on each one. Some of these photos show the temporary registration marks that I place on the fabric to guide me. These marks are removed.

Below are more photos and videos of me creating my pieces. Enjoy each one, and thank you again for viewing my work! Please leave a comment and tell me your thoughts!

Part of my drawing process! If only I could draw this fast in real time!

Thank you once again for viewing all of the photos and videos. If you have any questions about my work and/or would like to purchase a piece or have a custom piece made, please contact me.

Paper-Pieced Table Runner

I am going through a slow process of organizing myself and my work area. It was looking like a hurricane hit it. Little by little I am (with my husband’s help) picking up everything. One of the things that I have to do is complete the multitude of unfinished projects (UFOs) that I have. Some are from when I was going to teach and I was in the process of making samples for that class. Others were me trying to learn art quilting and just gave up on it and moved onto another project. Kind of a “Shinny object” disease (new things always catching my eye and interest).

The first one that I am working on completing is this table runner. I designed it and it was suppose to be a class until Covid hit and my plans were altered. So once it is finished I’ll add it to my Etsy list or in one of the shops (haven’t decided that yet).

After I designed the table runner, I print a piece of paper for each square I need. In this case 12.
Then I sew on the pieces of fabric on. Actually, each piece of fabric is sewn on the paper side for accuracy. I’ll have to do a video another date showing you that process.
This is one of the squares with the paper still on the back and all of the fabric sewn.
Now the fun part comes!!! All of the squares are sewn together and I get to pull off every little piece of paper!!!!
It’s all ready to layer, quilt, and add a binding! WooHoo!

Hope you enjoyed this blog! Have a wonderful day!

Fabric Doll Quilt

Before Covid started, I was babysitting this wonderful family. One of the two children turned 3 yesterday (Shout out to the Birthday Boy!), and I made him this Fabric Doll Quilt. About three years ago, I made one for his older sister and he loves to play with his sister’s, so I made him a boy quilt for him.

This is the quilt totally done. The doll is felt quilted (sewn) onto the main quilt.
The clothes (to the left) have the prickly side of velcro on one side so that they can adhere to the felt better.
The quilt itself has two zipper pockets (top and bottom) that can house the clothes. This way everything is kept all in one place!
Here’s just a fun video of me quilting the quilt.

Thank you for reading my blog! Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Gifts!

I’m done with my orders before Christmas! However, my projects are always increasing whether they are custom projects for customers or personal projects. An Art Quilter’s work is never done!

Today I am working on gifts for two young children in my life. These are fabric doll houses designed by Rebecca Page. She has some wonderful sewing patterns and the directions are easy to follow.

I was having some fun with the features on my camera!!

These are just pieces of one for a girl and one for a boy. When I’m done on Wednesday, I will share the entire book completed.

Until then…….Thank you for reading my blog and please leave a comment to tell me how you like this.

Getting Healthy!

For a long time, I have been thinking about writing blogs on my getting healthy journey. Today is the day that I decided to start, and the inspiration is that there are other people out there struggling just like I am. Maybe I can make a difference in their life while changing mine.

A little history: I was following the “American diet” of high carbs, refined and processed foods, high sugar, large amounts of food. This lead me to a very unhealthy mind, body and soul. I have tried a lot of diets and paid good money with little or no results. I was feeling exhausted, depressed, anxiety was setting in, not able to concentrate, and no motivation to do anything including excecise. Doctors take one look at me with these symptoms and basically said: loose weight and exercise. I got to the point that I was giving up with myself.

Over the summer I discovered that a friend has been studying to be what she calls a “health coach”. I was excited to start and as always I pray that this time will make a difference. During our initial appointment, she taught me a ton! This is the stuff that I want to share with you as well as recipes that I have tried and adapted to my nutritional needs.

One of the biggest things I have learned is that life style change will happen slowly. It is not all at once and cold turkey. I found that I’m good for a while, then slip into bad habits for a few days, feel my old symptoms creeping in, and then I change back to the good habits. No beating up myself, this is just the process. The good habits will take time to get use to and I’m ok with that.

There’s a lot of basic foods I cannot eat: Gluten, Dairy, and Sugar are the main items. My stomach right now cannot tolerate any type of peppers, eggplant, or tomatoes. That may be for the time being while I’m healing.

When I was eating these foods, my digestive track (esophagus, stomach, intestines) would get all inflamed and cause problems like reflux for example. So, I’d go to the doctor and they told me to take a pill. Even though it stopped the symptoms, it was causing another issue in my body. This would eventually cause my body to not be able to absorb nutrients from the food I eat. Leading to other symptoms, more pills, higher strength of pills because I was not able to absorb them.

So, with Sharron’s help, I have been working through what foods my body needs to function. I will be explaining in my next blogs about my continued journey to health.

Have a great day!

Emotions

We are all in the same boat with this novel virus. Today, my emotions are getting the best of me. I want to share with you how I handle emotional days. (Not that I’m an expert)

To date I have made about 600 masks. Some are donated and some are sold. Some of you have donated extra money which I have contributed to Buffalo Resilience ($380).

As I work on the masks, I am praying for the health of the people who will be wearing them, all of the essential employees, first responders, and any people who have contracted the virus. These are heavy days for all of us.

So, I find my happiness comes from my art quilting. I am making little art pieces (which are for sale). Today I’m going to continue on a piece to help me get focused again.

Elephant

I have to find about one hour per day to do my art which will bring me peace. Some days it may be half of the day or all day just to give myself some peace and happiness.❤️

If you find that you are struggling emotionally in these times, do something that makes you happy for a portion of the day! Please share with me what makes you happy!

Dog
Flowers

Above are a couple of art pieces I have done. Please contact me if you would like to purchase them.

Until next time, stay safe and healthy.

Peace.

Keeping Busy!

Since I posted last with my wonderful plan of projects to do, I saw on the news that masks are being made with cotton and flannel. I was all over it and started making them like there was no tomorrow! To date, I have made over 300 masks and still going.

I was making them at a rate of 50 per day which totally wiped me out, energy wise. I realized I needed (actually craved) my art quilting and time to be creative.

So, today I did a piece that is a quick “sketch” in thread, painted, and put onto a frame. It helps me get focused on the masks more.

Size: 5” x 7”
$20

I will be doing some small pieces like this to keep my creativity (aka: my happy place) flowing while still helping during this crisis.

They will all be for sale. If you would like to purchase one of these pieces, please message me. Also, if you have an idea of a subject to sketch, please pass it along to me.

Thank you for reading my blog. Stay safe and healthy!❤️

Skills and Techniques

Basic Paper Piecing

I am writing a step-by-step to paper piecing for one of my quilt guilds and thought I’d share it with all of you as well!

In this sample, I used Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper. This paper is thinner and easier to tear away after the blocks are joined. Regular copy paper can easily be used as well. In either case I use a 1.6 length stitch (in other words, very small straight stitch).

When starting a paper pieced block, measure each piece and add 1″ to the length and width. This will be the size you will cut each piece. Be sure to label them!

The pattern you choose should have each piece labeled. This tells us which order to sew the pieces in.

The basic concept is to place the pieces of fabric with the wrong side of the fabric facing the wrong side of the paper and that each piece of fabric will cover it’s coordinating place on the paper with at least 1/4″ seam allowance extending past it’s line. In other words, the lines on the sheet are the sewing lines. The seam allowance needs to be added.

1. Take your first piece of fabric and cover the outline of A1. I use stick glue to adhere the fabric piece in place.
Place piece A2 on top of piece A1 with right sides facing each other. Make sure that when these pieces are stitched on the line, A2 will cover it’s spot when folded to right side up.
2. Stitch on the line between A1 & A2. Start at one end of the line and sew to the end of the line. Do not sew past or before the line.
3. Fold paper on line that was sewn and cut to 1/4″ from the fold (which is that seam allowance), and press A2 to lay on it’s spot.

4. Fold A2 back in it’s place and press seam. I like to put a dab of glue in the spot again to hold it in place.
5. Fold the paper pattern on the A2/A3 line and trim fabric to 1/4″ from the fold.
6. Lay A3 fabric piece, right sides together (on A2 piece) on the wrong side of the paper pattern. Line up the edge to be sewn, and stitch on the A2/A3 line.
7. Continue doing steps 5-6 until all the pieces are sewn onto the paper.
8. When all the blocks are complete, cut on the dotted line of the block which will leave 1/4″ seam allowance so the blocks can be sewn together WITHOUT REMOVING FABRIC at this point.

When all the blocks are sewn together then you can remove the paper. This is a great task for a TV night!!

Thank you for reading my blog! Please tell me how you liked it, and please share with your quilting friends!

Have a wonderful Day!

Skills and Techniques

Machine Stitched Binding Technique

There are many ways to do a binding that are good. I want to share the techniques I use for creating and sewing binding. This is for the big queen (almost king) size quilt. I encourage you to research a bit and find as many different bindings as you can and try them on a placemat size quilt. This way you know what feels comfortable to you.

In my art quilts that are small, I cut strips of fabric that are 2″ wide. For this project, I cut them 2-1/2″ wide just to be proportionate. When cutting your strips, make sure you cut them salvage to salvage or it is sometimes called width of fabric (WOF).

You may be asking “How do I know how many strips to cut?” Here’s the formula I use:

  1. Measure the top or bottom and one side. For this example, let’s say that the quilt is 50″ x 50″. There are 4 sides to a quilt. The equation would be: 50″ x 4 = 200″
  2. Measure the width of your fabric. (In this example we are using a 40″ width.) Take the 200″ and divide by your width of fabric (40″) to equal 5 strips of fabric need to be cut. (I usually add one more strip for extra).
  3. Take that number of strips needed and multiply it by the width of each strip desired. For example: 5 strips x 2-1/2″width = 12-1/2″ of fabric needed for this binding.

Now you have all the fabric you need and the strips cut. It’s time to sew the strips together.

2-1/2″ strips cut for quilt.

These strips need to be sewn together. I sew them at a 45 degree angle. This will disperse the bulk of the fabric in the seam allowance as to not create bulky spots on the binding. If you are a beginner, I encourage you to mark and pin everything until you are comfortable. The directions are under each picture.

1. With the wrong side of fabric facing up, place the 45 degree angle on the short straight edge of the strip and move the ruler to the bottom corner of your fabric strip.
2. With the ruler still laying down as it step 1, mark the line.
3. Place a second strip perpendicular to the first strip with right sides facing together. Be sure to line up all the edges, pin on either side of the line and sew directly on the line.

The previous 3 steps are for beginners. The next is for more advanced and using the markings on my machine.

1. Over lab two strips with right sides facing each other. This time don’t line up the edges. Off-set the edges a little bit to create tiny 90 degree angles as shown above.
2. Place the top 90 degree angle to the needle and under the presser foot. Then use the bottom 90 degree angle to line up at the center needle mark on your machine. (Not all machines have this mark. Bernina’s do have it. You can put tape or a mark on the extension table that mimics the line I use.) Sew from the point of one 90 angle to the other 90 degree angle. I like to chain stitch the strips all together.
3. After all of the strips are sewn together, I cut them apart and cut off the point, leaving more than 1/4″ of the fabric for seam allowance. I do use scissors in this case because accuracy in cutting at this point will not make a difference in my opinion.
4. Press the seam allowance open and press strip in half with wrong sides together, creating a 1-1/4″ strip.
I tend to roll my binding strip as I go to keep it neat.
5. Sewing the binding onto the quilt. I start by sewing the binding onto the back of the quilt. I stitched a scant 1/2″ seam allowance and checked it by folding the binding over to the other side of the quilt and making sure that the folds meet up and cover the stitch line.

Leave 6-8″ of the binding free and start sewing onto the back of the quilt.

The above slide show has step-by-step photos of how to fold and sew the corners and I explain it below. I wanted to give you as many photos I could to help explain what is hard to explain in words.

1. Stop sewing 1/2″ before the edge of the quilt. (second photo)

2. Fold the unsewn part of the binding back at a 45 degree angle and finger press. (3rd photo)

3. Fold the unsewn part of the binding back lining up the raw edge of the binding to the raw edge of the quilt and leaving the fold along the first raw edge of the quilt that is already sewn (6th photo)

4. Starting at the edge of the quilt where the fold is, continue sewing that scant 1/2″.

5. Repeat these steps and stop 6-8″ from where you started sewing the binding.

Joining the binding is another tricky spot. Once again, I am providing a bunch of similar photos to help to understand the written directions below.

  1. If necessary, trim the loose end on the left so that it falls approximately in the middle of the open 6-8″. Lay it flat against the edge of the quilt and pin. (2nd photo)
  2. Use a scrap piece of the binding (about 2-3″ long), open it up and pin the scrap piece on top of the already pinned binding. Line up the long edge of the scrap binding to the end of the already pined binding. Pin the scrap on the left side. (3rd photo)
  3. Lay the right side of the unsewn binding over already pinned binding from step 2. (4th photo)
  4. Fold the top piece so that the fold is matching the edge of the scrap piece underneath (5th photo). Finger press.
  5. Unfold that top piece and cut on the fold. Unpin everything. (both of the pieces are suppose to over lap at this point for sewing room)
  6. Lay the edges of the binding facing together and open up (wrong side of fabric facing up).
  7. Pick up the edges slightly and match the edges together (the quilt will seem to be shorter, just push it out of the way).
  8. Rotate the end on the right 1/4 turn away from you. The ends are now at a 90 degree angle from each other. Line it up the same way when the strips were joined together. (The right side strip can be marked at that 45 degree angle if you wish to have that line)
  9. Pin on both sides of the “to be” sewing line. (Tip: the binding strips are at a 90 degree angle and you will be sewing across to form an “A”.)
  10. Sew ends together
  11. Unpin and check to make sure the sewing was done right by folding the binding in half lengthwise (the way it will be sewn to the quilt). It should lay flat. (photos are in the below slide show)
  12. Open up and trip the corner, finger press seam open
  13. Continue to sew the unsewn section of the binding.
  1. Roll the binding over to the right side of the quilt. It should be snug around the edge and slightly covers the previous stitching. (6th photo)
  2. I use a foot with a flange to help line up the binding when I fold it over. I also move my needle to position 2 to the right. (photo7)
  3. When I get to the corner, I pull out the binding on the other side of the quilt and this should create a 45 degree angle on the right hand side. I continue to sew straight to just about 1/4″ from the edge of the quilt. (photos 11 & 12)
  4. I rotate the quilt 1/4 turn, fold the binding over aligning the corner to the previously sewn binding, and continue sewing until completely sewn around.
  5. Whew! Lots of information!

Thank you for reading my blog! Hope you try this method on your next quilt.

Have a wonderful day!

What’s Happening!

Happy New Year everyone!!!🎊🎉

I’ve been working on the wedding quilt for my son and daughter-in-law over the past couple of weeks. I’m happy to say……I’m almost done with it!!!

I used a cotton and wool batting for the first time and I like the results. I did learn that I probably needed to pin baste closer together to avoid fabric shifting (like every 2-3” would have been perfect). It turned out nice and has a good weight to it! It will keep them warm for those winter nights!

I’ll be finishing it this weekend by squaring it up and binding.

That’s what’s happening! Thank you for reading my blog. I will be doing some quilt tutorial blogs in the near future. Please tell me if there’s anything you’d like to see!

T-Shirt Quilts – Custom made vs Manufacturing Companies

There are a few manufacturing companies that will be more than happy to make a t-shirt quilt out of your t-shirts. Then there are private professional quilters like me who pay attention to details and the customers vision.

I looked into those companies a bit. Yes, they are less expensive (considerably) than the private professional quilter; however, you are getting a different quality and not as much attention to details. Here’s what I found:

  1. The manufacturing companies will take your shirts and use a die cutter to cut the design part of the shirt out. I’m not sure if they stabilize the shirts or not which in my opinion is a must when sewing knit (stretchy) fabric to woven (non-stretch) fabric. It produces a smoother seam and stronger end product. The other part…the die cutter cannot adjust for a shirt design that is larger than the size of it. In just about every t-shirt quilt I have made, there is at least one shirt design that is bigger than the size of the square I use and I have had to make adjustments. That is what you are getting with a custom quilter……creativity in adjusting square size to the design. Plus, I sit with the customer and ask if they want the back of the t-shirts if there’s a print on both sides. I don’t know if the manufacturers do that. My guess would be they don’t do that personal touch.
  2. I (as the custom quilter) give you a choice of how you want the back of the quilt to be. Traditional (batting and fabric), more t-shirts with batting between, or fleece alone. The one that I saw had just fleece which is much faster to work with.
  3. Once the front and back of the quilt is sewn together, the manufacturing companies don’t sew the layers together (or known as quilting together). That is a very labor intensive process. You do pay for the quilt to be quilted. In my opinion, the quilting together bonds the layers together to provide a stronger end product. The quilting together is important to prevent the t-shirts and other fabrics from sagging through the years, and when it’s washed the quilt is all bonded together and it’s easier to fold and put away.
  4. My thought is that the quilting together will overall last longer than the not quilted one. You’re getting a stronger quilt.

So there you have it, the pros and cons to custom t-shirt quilt and a manufacturer t-shirt quilt. Same end product in general, different quality of work and attention to details. If you are looking for a custom t-shirt quilter, please contact me for further details.

Thank you for reading my blog, and have a wonderful day.

Time to Re-Focus!!

I am sew embarrassed that I have two wedding gifts from 2 years ago that I have not completed.  Sew, for the next few weeks, I am going to complete these gifts and give them!  This is going to give me a good focus on the work I have to do now.  I just started painting the fabric.  I am planning on finishing this by the end of this week, and I can give it to the happy couple (my cousin). The photo in the middle is the quilt at the end of the painting stage.  The original photo is on the far right.  Next step is to quilt it and frame it.

 

The other part of this is that my work area is totally messy.  I am focusing on re-organizing this space to get ready for a litany of projects I have to complete by the end of the year.

Since my teaching experience at AQS in April, I have decided to focus on teaching and competition quilts; andI will of course take any commissioned quilt work that comes along.  This allows me to have a very specific focus that I could market and expand on!

Thank you for reading this post!  I would love to read your comments!

Heart Quilt

I have the pleasure of having my youngest son getting married later this year! He’s marrying a wonderful young woman whom I just adore.

As one of their wedding gifts, I have created the Heart Quilt pattern and making it for them. This is all made from 2″ squares and the final size will be 98″x120″. Yes, a very big quilt!

This will not be completed by the wedding date, however, it will be hanging on the wall and all attendees will be able to sign their name and add a message for the happy couple. There will be a table with a piece of fabric that I ironed onto freezer paper. The fabric will eventually be part of the back of the quilt along with a blessing that will be on the label reminding the happy couple that we are all supporting them through their journey of marriage.

Going through my list of things to do to get ready for teaching at the AQS Spring Paducah Show from April 23-27, 2019!!!  It’s only 3 weeks away!!

I filled all of the little paint containers with Red, Yellow, Blue, and White paint.  Filling the Aloe Vera (Fabric Medium) containers was a bit tricky, but using a pastry bag and the big round piping tip worked perfect!!  Labeled all of the containers.

There are a few more things to pick up for my classes, have to do the step-outs for the ALL STAR REVIEW on Wednesday, and organize all of the boxes of class supplies I have.

I am really excited to attend this show!

Applying to Roycroft Artisans

Since the November, I have been on the fence as to applying to The Roycrofters-At-Large-Association, Inc. (RALA). From what I understand, RALA is a group of very skilled artisans who help educate and foster the continual growth of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Why do I want to be in it? (I really struggled with the answer.) I feel that I am in a very unique spot between quilting and fine arts that I can help inspire other people/artisans to grow as well as them inspiring me. I am imagining that I would teach, be taught, continue to grow, and sell my art all in one group! I know that I love to teach and see people grow in a field that I am so passionate about.

So, why was I on the fence? It’s that old, whinny me saying “I’m not good enough – That might not be the right path – It’s too much”. Yesterday, when I saw the deadline to enter as 3/10/21, I really made a conscious decision to just go for it! I might not be accepted on the first attempt, however, I should be able to get good criticism to apply again next year and maybe the year after that! This could be the place that will help me grow in the way that I need to!

The jurying process is April 10 and below are the pieces that I submitted to them. I will keep you posted as to the results, and I can tell you now, that I am so excited to go through this journey!!

Please send me a message of your favorite piece!
