I'm lucky enough to be a member of this amazing group of artists. Each year we select a challenge to inspire our work. These quilts were created in 2018 for our initial challenge "Architecture."

Big bold flowers. I can imagine them painted onto the side of a warehouse or a parking garage. Inspired by a sample from DelveMIY. Machine quilted and machine raw-edge appliqué.

Our happy place. We spend many evenings on the terrace at "our" litte famhouse looking up to the Assisi skyline. I see the San Francesco Basilica, the temple of Minerva, a figment of my imagination, Basilica of Santa Chiara and San Rufino.
These linens were purchased in Montefalco. Their rustic appearance reflects Saint Francis of Assisi.

Isn't this a gorgeous piece of fabric? It's a digital print by Hoffman. When I found the variagated piece in my stash, I knew they belonged together. At an Artist Retreat in Lake Tahoe, one of the painters looked at the two fabrics on the design wall and said, "This needs to be a triptych." Why didn't I think of that!
Gifted to realtor friend Rowena.

My husband took this photo at a park in Boston. I love the perspective. Raw edge appliqué and paints. Both techniques are new to me!
24" x 36"
Please check out the next photo taken by my husband from inside our villa (on the hilla) in Ravello, Italy. His photo was the inspiration for an Artful Log Cabin taught by Katie Pasquini Masopust at Sisters in 2018. These abstract log cabins are addictive. This will be the first in a series.

My vision was of someone standing in an intersection in a city looking up to see the tops of all the buildings. I love working with wedge rulers, and consider black and white fabrics to be the printed versions of Zentangles. Can you see the sky?
