    Thank you very much! This is my favorite piece of dyed fabric. I still need to do some machine stitching and some hand embroidery.

    LOVE this little art piece. Hope it was satisfying to do and it's great to look at and think about

    Oksewglad, is that an original poem? I really like the imagery.

    Thanks for the kind words. No nancia, it's a poem by Sara Teasdale--mid 20th century poet. I thought it fit the quilt. I do write haiku and have a couple of ideas for mini's with a couple of those.

    It is so precious. I love it.

    PS: yes, it is still August, I hope! Can't believe summer is gone. How did that happen?

    Fun experiments

    OK-- I am not quite done----poo! I kept thinking of other things I wanted to play at as I went along. It was fun but not conducive to meeting month end deadline. I bet several of you can relate.

    So here is a quilt of our daughter's family dogs/cats. It is due for the couch in their TV room rather than my usual wall pieces.

    The fun Play parts are as follows; The body was white cotton-green crayon and chicken wire. I'd never done crayon b4 and did several things with them, this one looked best here. Other crayon experiments will get used later of course.

    The B&W pattern is printed off my printer. I have used a lot of Bubble Jet b4 and love it. The experiment here was this-- If you go online and search for 'QR code' you will discover that a QR code is a small B&W bar code type visual. This site will generate a visual code for anything you type in. (People put these codes on the front t-shirts. Towels, plastic stickers for shoes, coffee mugs etc. It is all great fun) So I typed in the names of the dogs & cats in the family, the QR generator made me a code which I repeated all over a page and printed to fabric. So the B&W is actually an 'in joke' of the names of the animals with a little of it used in each of the appliqued blocks.

    Will show the whole finished Q when I get it done late in the w/e.

    This was sure a fun month for me. Hope you guys all enjoyed yourselves.

    Guess I'm getting older..don't want to say goodbye to summer. Fall is a beautiful time too (especially if it's a warm fall)!

    SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE

    Create something and Play with all sorts of GOLD!!!!!!

    Many a project can benefit greatly from the additions of gold highlights or complete drenchings in gold and it is amazing how few people use this versatile, delightful metallic in their projects. I am not talking the mellow deep gold fabric hues here but the actual addition of bling.

    You can paint the reds,oranges and golds with fabric irridescents. Gold lamé can do some fascinating things. Then there are Gold ribbons, metallic goodies of all kinds, Angelina fibers......and I imagine some of you will come up with media I never thought of and I can't wait to see and hear about it all.

    Pick your project and find a ways to 'gold it up' or go completely gold, or.......well you get the idea.

    Suzie I love following such talent and seeing what you do month to month. Eventually, I won't be able to find them all. Lots of pages. Have you thought of using separate topics for each one. I'd love to find them all in one section. Just me asking. NO offense meant.
    Beautiful work being shown here and the next challenge with Golds sounds awesome as well.
    Congrats to all who step out of the box and create creations to remember......

    Suzie, your puppy is so cute. I love his little paws the best. Thanks for teaching us (me anyway) about QR codes. I didn't know you could make them of things you want to. Very creative.

    Love September's challenge. After our fishing trip I will have to get started. The other day I asked a clerk at JoAnn's about angelina and they had no idea of what I was talking about... even the manager didn't know. Where is a good resource here in the USA to get the stuff? I imagine there is an online site.
