This is the 4th theme for the Art Squared group. The Theme was NATURAL. All I could come up with is wheat. I guess because of the color?
I used a spsecial stitch on my Pfaff to create the wheat shafts. The quilt was a little boring so I added some insects.
I used little pearlized beads to make the grain on some of the shafts. The beads were too white so I colored them with a Sharpie.

Shaye and Ben got married in July 2013. It was a BEAUTIFUL wedding. Shaye chose a cheveron pattern in these colors. It was fun and easy to make. I started it at a GAW in MA.
The back is flannel. Sadie always tries to get in every quilt picture I take. :)
This is the 3rd challenge for my Art Squared group. The theme was "Illuminate". I immediately though of fireflies. My friendly chipmunks, Chip and Munk ( I know... not very original) are playing a game of poker under the illumination of the fireflies. Chip and Munk caught them earlier in the evening to light up their humble abode.
I made the jar out of vinyl and lots of Angelina heat bond fiber illuminates their card game.
This is Chip and he is made out of thread........lots ........and lots of thread. Looks like he will win the hand with his pair of aces.
My brother in law, Jim (all different fabrics and sizes) gave me 85 Crown Royal bags and said he wanted a quilt for their camper. After 1.5 yrs. of thinking, planning, and shopping for fabric this is what I came up with.
Kind of ugly, but he seems to really like it so that is what counts.
