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.

A Finished Jacket and the Beginning of a Quilt Class

I finished the "Just a Basic Blue Jacket" over the weekend and am pretty much pleased with it. There is a beaded band on the front which is hard to see in the photo as well as an embroidered hmong strip on the front and sleeves. Almost all the fabrics are batiks. The back has an embroidery which I purchased on Ebay, two beaded bands and four hmong bands. The lining is a tiger fabric.
Today I began a two day class taught by Pat Pauly at Marcia's studio. These are two stripped pieces which I made as the beginning of the process.

They were then cut and stitched together randomly
Tomorrow I will need to do more cutting and adjusting and adding more fabric. It was a lot of fun.
