Given the freezing temperatures and snow covered grounds, I thought these two photos might be a warm touch! "Hibiscus" was created for a challenge hosted by fellow "sister" and friend, Evelyn Judson. One of the requirements of the challenge was to use the color green. At the time my stash was seriously lacking a choice of green fabrics so I decided to make the best possible use of only one piece of green fabric by alternating the direction of the stripes. This was my first attempt at machine quilting and I've been hooked ever since! Sunflower is a small 8x8 piece that was inspired by friend and photographer, Rose Alpert. It is part of the Sisters in Cloth "Double Take" exhibit which included large scale and detail pieces inspired by Rose's photographs.
