Citizens of Textile tomorrow!

You may already know about Heather's newest project, Citizens of Textile. If not, in short, it's a small marketplace of handmade goods and fiber love. It's only available one weekend a month, with a few artists featured each month.

And I'm a lucky duck who is included in the October offerings! Tomorrow (Friday), at 5 pm PST, you can find a few of my handmades, as well as loads of gorgeous hand-dyed yarns. Also included this month, is Splendor Falls. She has made some amazing woven pouches!

Speaking of weaving, two of my woven scarves will be available in the sale this weekend.

FO: Oceanic

My Oceanic scarf, which I love so much. The colors are just my favorite, and it's so soft and fine!

FO: Rosy Mariposa

There's also this Rosy Mariposa scarf, woven from some treasured handspun from an old friend and some Malabrigo Worsted.

COT Needle Rolls

I also made a handful of needle rolls, using my pal Amanda's pattern.

Lastly, you can find a few of my quilted pillows, of the Halloween and Autumn varieties!

Natalie's FQV

Last month, I worked on Natalie's fantastic quilt voyage.

Natalie's FQV

Her theme was inspired by nature and I decided to make some improv sunny blocks. I used scraps that Natalie sent, along with a few additional pieces from the stash, and made these four blocks, which I sewed into a long strip.

I really love them, and I hope Natalie does, too.

I attached my strip to Nicke's diamond blocks, and sent Natalie's quilt on to the next person.

FO: A quilt for Ginger

Ginger embroidery

I was recently asked to make a memory quilt for a sweet dog named Ginger. Ginger belonged to a close friend of Elliott's, and I was given a collection of scarves from Ginger's groomer. Given the oblong shape and size of these fabric pieces, I thought a coin quilt would be a simple way to showcase them, and I used a Timeless Treasures Sketch print for the background. The quilt is a decent throw size.

I embroidered Ginger's name near the center (I traced a printed version to get the bubble letters, from a Word document), and the embroidery is my favorite part. I quilted it simply in a very light blue thread.

I never thought I would make a memorial quilt for a dog, but I'm glad I could give her family some comfort.
