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.

Finished Jacket

The jacket is finished and I am pleased with it. The leaf fabric came from my friend Nancy Board and is an Alexander Henry print from over 20 years ago and a favorite. I made a couple of bog coats with thei piece I had back then.
Its a made to measure kimono style. The band is purple velveteen. There's a bit of trim with hand dyed ribbon and beaded shisha mirrors.
