Mostly applique and one block from the Block of the Month at Cabin Fever Quilt Shoppe. Calvin the cow is awaiting batting, backing and quilting. The four smaller appliques will end up in a larger quilt with 12 appliques in total; all of them are baskets. The large butterfly applique is...well, I'm not sure where it's going at this time but I had fun doing it. I'll probably add some sparkles and other embellishments to make it look more fairy-like. That's all for today.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
