The last Fiesta Ornaments

Things have been busy. My sister Deb has been visiting since the quilt show and you know how you have to got to all those places you don’t normally go except when someone from out of town is with you…

I keep thinking things will slow down soon.

    gosh! i cannot believe how much i love those ornaments. maybe i missed something…are they for something special or was just a fun project?

  2. These were the ornaments I started for the IQA Festival to demonstrate the process in open studios. I originally designed the ornaments for the Quilting Arts Gifts issue. I really enjoy making them, once I start the little paintings, I just want to paint more and more.

    I love the combination of the shiny decorated metal with the painted fabric after the metal is sewn to them and embossed.
