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.

Scrappy Jacket Class - Day Two

This was day two of a Scrappy Jacket Class at the Bobbin Case in Rochester. The task during the break was to use 4" to 5" squares and make "fabric" on a foundation cut on the jacket pattern. This is my sample jacket made from squares sent a few years ago from Hancock Fabrics in Paducah. It is embellished with a great deal of machine stitching using variegated thread, fabric sample squares from the early 80's and antique pearl buttons.
The three students created a wide range of "fabric". Some of embellished with appliques.

Sharon had her jacket "together" by the end of the day. She plans to add some beads and more embellishment.

Varda made a jacket made of many different orange fabrics and will trim down the amount of lime on the sleeve bands and add a purple band with a trace of lime to the front.
