"It Takes all Kinds of Music" a fabric collage, raw-edged and fused appliques, and free motion quilting with metallic threads. This is the same technique I use when I quilt up my sweatshirt jackets.
Yesterday's weather was fantastic: warm, sunny, and breezy. The Art at the Met, Jacksonsville, Florida is held at riverside for 3 days. Our spot in facing the river with a beautiful, wisteria covered gazebo in the back. It's at least 10 degrees cooler there - great when the sun gets too high and hot. The music was great as well. Foot traffic swells when the music acts take a break. I do spend a lot of time talking about fiber art - art quilting. People seemed amazed what I can do with fabric, thread and a sewing machine. Many comment that they have never seem anything like this before. A teacher always. I am wealthy with compliments.
