2012 Quilting Arts Calendar

Sorry to say that Katie-Klepto was not a finalist for the Quilting Arts 2012 Calendar...but I'll try again next year! This was my first attempt at this much thread painting on my own...and I learned a lot on this project. Here is the finished 12" x 12" wallhanging and a detail. I used hand-dyed fabrics and batiks from my stash, rayon threads in Katie colors, beads, scanned the notions and printed them on fabric treated with Bubble-Jet, and machine quilted. I have it hanging in my sewing room now...

  1. Very cool, mom! I'm sorry you didn't get into this year's calendar. There is always next year, like you said. Plus, as long as it was a great learning experience, it was all worth it. I'm sure Katie can appreciate it, too...She was almost famous! :0)
