Tortuga

I did this quilt with the intention to donate it to the silent auction for Ray’s House of Hope, a shelter for elderly pets in Florida. I am so happy to say that it sold for $350.00!

14″ x 16″ all cotton fabrics and threads, shading done with textile paints. 2021

Keyshia

(Papa’s Girl Keyshia Whitepaw Hooligan Princess)

This was a commission piece. There’s lots of thread painting, which is putting details and shading in with lots of thread work. I wanted to give the impression of fur, since her’s is very tweedy. I really enjoyed making this portrait.

15″ x13″ All cotton fabrics and threads. Textile paints added for shading. 2021

The Look of Love

I was asked by my daughter to do a portrait of this pitbull Sadie, that recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Her owner, a friend of my daughter’s was devastated. I loved doing this piece and I am so happy it brought some happiness to Sadie’s “Mom”. I am a dog lover too.

This piece is with Sadie’s “Mom”

Tou can play

This is a piece I did to donate to the SAQA (Studio Art Quilters Association) fall fund raiser. I was just enamored with Toucans so I wanted to do a quilt of one.

9/24/21 I’m so happy, this little quilt sold today on the SAQA benefit auction site. All funds go to SAQA to help with all their programs.

The Spark

You might think this is a representation of a flower, but it’s a totally abstract design I did. I very much wanted to portray movement, or flow. I also tried some different free motion quilting patterns that I had not done before. I also wanted to work in a complementary color scheme, which is the yellow and purple.

Mickey

This is the portrait I did of one of my dogs. Mickey has been with us since 2007. He’s an old man now, mostly deaf but in pretty good health. I love him dearly.

DIL’s grandfather and a true gentleman.

Can You Hear Me Now

I did this piece for a class on scrappy quilts. It’s a great way to use little bits of left over fabric from other projects. I look forward to doing other animals in this technique.

They Came Before

This quilt was gifted to Vice President Harris when she visited Denver on 3/16/21.

I did this portrait of Kamala Harris after I took a class in fabric portraiture. I loved this photo of her. I struggled for awhile on what to do for a background but then I came up with this. The names and sketches are all stitched on, her face was done separately, then stitch onto the background. I am very happy with it!
