Art Journey with a Quilty Voice:
I here Voices. The Voices tell me to cut up Fabric. Good Fabric. Into small pieces. Small interesting pieces.
Then the Voices tell me to put them back together again. In interesting ways.

A couple of Charity Quilts I've been working on

They are almost done, hopefully I will get some help in the next week to finish them. Two are string quilts using some of my scraps and fabric I want use up. The other two were started a few years ago when our guild wasn't making charity quilts, but I still wanted to make them. Now I have a place to give them to so recently I've been inspired to finish them.

My 2009 Christmas Quilt

I found this fabric while on Vacation last summer for $4.50 a yard... I bought the whole bolt! At our annual retreat in November I took a class about making fractured quilts and decided that this was the time to make my first Christmas themed quilt ... ever! I also decided this because I had just used the same fabric to make a tree skirt. Once it was done I went on to make a table cloth too for our Christmas dinner. Wow!

Layer Cake Quilt

I finished this last summer (2009) just in time for my parent's visit. It is a king size quilt that I quilted on my old sewing machine.

Update on my Timon quilt

I've made more progress this year than I imagined!
This is the last panel I need to assemble to finish the top. Someone asked me "what are you planning for the border"? I was so surprised because all these years I've been focused on finished the image
