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.

Jacket Class...Day Three

Inspector Suki arrived early today to get some attention and check on progress. She feels she needs to guard Marcia's vest while she irons another strip.
Then there always sewing stitches to monitor.

Lynn had her vest almost finished today. She sewed some beautiful embellishment stitches on the center back panel and added strips of seed beads.
A small mola is going to serve as a pocket on the lower left.
Bev made great progress and her jacket is taking on a sort of Kimono like look.
And Mary's jacket just sparkles and she also added a touch of seed beads to her creation.
Beth managed to finish the outsides of her jacket. My colors are terrible and this is a much brighter piece but still quite subtle. Marcia was ready to cut out the sides by the end of the day. She also added seed beads to the red strips of the front. She will do a bit of quilting on the back panel to hold the pieces in place.

Beth has her outside pieces finished and does a bit of modeling.

And Mary shows her jacket off at the end of the day.
