Inktense Flowers

Inktense Flowers

By popular demand, how I created my “Inktense Flowers”. I was new to Inktense last year so this was an experiment.  A normal person would have thrown this experiment away pretty early on, but we’re not talking about a normal person here. We’re...
“Galaxy” Quilted Art on Canvas

“Galaxy” Quilted Art on Canvas

Another fearless experiment with paint! (I say fearless because I don’t know about you but I find a blank canvas or a blank piece of fabric quite intimidating!!) I got a nice set of Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow fabric paints (all fabric paints are linked in my Products...
LOTUS and PAISLEY QUILTS

LOTUS and PAISLEY QUILTS

I found two gorgeous Kaffe Fassett prints and paired them with Moda orange grunge to make two lap quilts, each 55×70″. [Actually, I’ve found way way way more than two gorgeous Fassett prints…and other prints!! If this keeps up I may qualify for...
Raw Edge Appliqué Cat Art

Raw Edge Appliqué Cat Art

Yes, I know, it’s been almost two months since I posted…sorry! Been so busy!! I’ve made some quilts (which I will post soon). I recently wanted to try my hand at raw edge appliqué and do something artsy. Artsy is a word I’m sure if not, it is...
FMQ Zipper Bag Tutorial

FMQ Zipper Bag Tutorial

Ok, you asked for it, you got it. This is how I make my quiled zipper bags! There are different ways to make them. This one is not lined and is a simple, flat rectangular bag. If you’re in a hurry, this is an easy and fast way to do it. This is also a great way...
COUCHED SNOWMAN

COUCHED SNOWMAN

Follow my blog with Bloglovin –– Staying with the holiday theme this December 2018, and wanting to try one more couching experiment I decided to make a small snowman wall hanging. This would be good practice for some artsy ideas I have later!   Since I wanted a soft,...
FMQ GIFTS!

FMQ GIFTS!

Since this is a gift-giving time of the year for many people I wanted to do another post this week and share some of the small things I made my first year (2017) as a new FMQ-obsessed crazy person!  (If you haven’t turned into one already, you will!) I made...
Santa–Couching Foot

Santa–Couching Foot

The temptation to get the COUCHING INSERTS for the BERNINA #72 ruler foot was too tempting this past Black Friday (50% off)! I really had in mind using the smallest of the 3 inserts to do some small projects, but so far I cannot get anything to work but the largest...
ROOSTER–Inktense Quited Art

ROOSTER–Inktense Quited Art

I decided to try another Inktense experiment. I had this awesome photo of a Rooster which I took a few years ago at the Austin Zoo (a rescue zoo!). I thought he might make for an interesting piece of art… that is IF I could pull it off. I mean, seriously, using...
Asian Fabric Inspired Quilt

Asian Fabric Inspired Quilt

Another fabric whisperer moment. Once again, minding my own business, although what business I had in a fabric store AGAIN, who can say? (Seriously, I have enough fabric to quilt for an army by now.) Anyway, there I was and suddenly this fabric whispered, “Wouldn’t it...
Sakespeare Portrait (Inktense Painted)

Sakespeare Portrait (Inktense Painted)

So, right after the cat portrait, I decided I wanted to play with Inktense again! Not only that, another portrait. The fearless and crazy spell was still in full swing. After getting my sketch onto my white fabric (I like the ready-to-dye fabric; it’s...
Cat Portrait–INKTENSE Art

Cat Portrait–INKTENSE Art

I know this is out of sequence.. but I thought I should toss this in separately since so many people went crazy over it at the time (March of 2017) and well, it deserves its own post I guess! At least this special cat would think so. This is Tatey’s portrait....
