This is the very large fusible applique on which I've been working for the past two weeks. It will be the center of a quilt. The blocks that go around it are nearly done. I'll probably put the whole thing together after the new year. Please click on the photo to see the flowers more clearly. The folded fabric flowers are supposed to be tulips or budding tulips. I took a class from Rami Kim a few years ago and learned all kinds of things about Korean chop key which is sort of paper origami using fabric.
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.
