You're Nothing But the Truth (Redux)

It's the same quilt, but I've added some tulle to give it more texture and depth.

Power Animal Art Quilt

I finished this a while ago, but it's only when I look at it now that I feel like it's finished. This is my power animal. It is a dozen feet long and eats paper.

Power Animal Art Quilt

8" x 23" Machine appliqued cotton, cotton batting. I tried a different binding technique on the edges- just using thread- and it was better on the thicker parts of the quilt than the thinner ones. Good to know.

Dispatches From Hexipuff City

86 so far and the cat loves 'em. He also loves sleeping in my lap while I knit. Everybody wins.

Rhino Order of Assembly

A sketch for my next quilt-- trying out a new technique, and I want to make sure I get the pieces down in the right order.

"Whales" Art Quilt

This is my largest art quilt yet, going by surface area. It's up in the living room now, weirding out my friends until I try to put it in a show.

The Whales Art Quilt

54" x 36" Machine appliqued cotton, cotton batting.

Baby whale detail
Here's a detail of the baby whale-- I knew I had the placement of the eyes just right when I laughed out loud.
