I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

Quilting by the Lake...Take Three

One of the features of a sample making class where you are exploring some possibly new materials is doing a "what if" exercise. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia I came upon a needlework shop where I found some very interesting sort of hollow woven metallic polyester wire. I gave everyone a length of it and initiated a small contest to see what everyone would come up with with prizes of course.

The most common result was some form of jewelry...such as this nice necklace.
But here was a nice potted palm tree!
Then there is always the wag like Mary who made an "imaginary" piece.

And Eileen made another necklace.
Wendy made a beautiful "art quilty" piece.
And Lynn said she was going to make bag handles with it.
