Sunday Morning -- Fiber Art

Sunday Morning
29.5" X 17.5"
Materials & Techniques: Fused raw edge applique with commercial cotton fabrics. Quilted with Superior Thread +/- 1/8" apart on a domestic Bernina. Edge is faced and hand stitched to the back. Signed & dated.

My inspiration came from a picture I took of 5 of our grandchildren in front of Lakeland Presbyterian Church on Hwy 25 just north of Jackson, MS in Flowood.

Using a photo app "Prisma" I changed the photo using the 'composition' filter.

Bonnie Hunter Mystery and Michigan Trip

Listening to Handel's Messiah while I stitch units for clue #2 of #BonnieHunter's mystery quilt #OnRingoLake .
 

Continuing our trip to Detroit, we passed this huge Uniroyal tire on Interstate 94.

It is made from a ferris wheel that was at the NY World's Fair in 1964. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniroyal_Giant_Tire

Scott and Darry have a junk business in Detroit. They find all kinds of 'treasures' and have furnished their houses with some of their finds.

Scott prepared popcorn for the snack at the weekly activity center.

The children gathered around for prayer before snack.

We had supper with Scott & Melissa, Kaylie, & Samatha and Darryl & Laura, and Kenny & Danielle.

Alex with his mini bike. He let me sit on it but was afraid I'd wreck it if I took it for a spin. It's probably good that he was skeptical of my driving!

Darryl and Laura live on Casper Street with very close neighbors.

Paul helped Darryl work on the garage while Kenny supervised!

A Few Grands and Improv Quilt Workshop

Life ...
This evening we celebrated Rusty's 2nd birthday.

Talya, Georgi, and Tina made special letters with stencils, watercolor markers, and stickers.
The boys entertained themselves by running a remote toy from the other side of the carport.

I enjoyed teaching an improv class today.

Summer Life

Life ...
Did I mention that I got a ...

... helicopter ride this summer?

It was so neat to be sitting there and then gently lifting up, up, up and away!

 I don't know the name of these beautiful flowers ...

... in my friend's yard.

Teryn helped me make his cake for his 4th birthday.

Occasionally the farm boys need me to take them to the field.

... as a Quilter
I exhibited at a gift shop in Columbus for their annual ArtWalk.

MQA - Patches Workshop

Recently I taught my "Patches" class in Jackson for Mississippi Quilt Association. These nine students were a fun group and did wonderful work.

I'm always thrilled with the talent and creativity of the group.

Life

Life ...
Paul just happened to be at the right spot when I asked to get a picture of Justin and Rachel, the new bride and groom.

Maybe Quinten can help get the radio controlled plane going.

Home ... sweet home!


We have 4 Pekin and 4 Mallard ducks that we enjoy.

... as a Quilter
I've finally finished a quilt for Josiah Paul.

He was right pleased to be able to take it home.

I'm starting another quilt for "PeaPicker" using the scraps of his daddy's ties. It's taking a little longer as I need to do more piecing and trying to make the best use of the scraps.
