Dragonfly Vest

Some of you saw this vest in various states of completion.  Well I got it done in time for the Evergreen show and prior to our trip to Argentina.  I am currently into finishing my UFOs!

Garden Gone Awry

All 12 WWRWS pieces
Women Who Run With Scissors combined with the Green Bay Ikebana Flower Arranging group and the Green Bay Embroiderer's Guild for a weekend show at the Green Bay Botanical Gardenson March 2 and 3.  "Garden Gone Awry" was completed for the 2012 WWRWS challenge for the  show.  The requirements were: the size had to be 16" X 16"; the theme was botanical in nature (pun intended); and we had to use one or all of three grays selected by the challenge committee.  12 people with 12 very different viewpoints! This fun show exhibit was also exhibited at the Evergreen Quilt Guild Show.

Fresh Berries

This piece was completed for an Evergreen Quilt Guild Challenge.  It was completed after a series of sketches and a smaller trial version.  This completed version is 30 X 36 inches, which is a fairly large work for me.  The rules included: the required size, 30 X 36 format along with the need to use one of the recycled fabrics required by the guild. I placed third in the challenge.
