第二被子’m featuring is 车轮 made 通过 维基 Adams and quilted 通过 Libie Peterson. 维基 was our featured artist at the show and her special exhibit was highlighted in an earlier blog. The 车轮 pattern is from Kaffe Fassett’s book Quilt Granduer, but 维基 designed her own border.
我们重新安排了第33届年度 Kitsap被子’ Guild show the first weekend in May was a great success. We had a wonderful array of 200+ 被子 and guild member, 维基 Adams was our featured artist. 这里’s 维基 in her lovely display area.
维基’s immersion in fiber arts began at an early age. Her mother and grandmothers sewed, did embroidery and other handwork and 维基 took to it naturally completing her first embroidered piece at the age of five. She loves knitting, counted cross-stitch, clothing construction, and all kinds of embroidery. She began quilting in 1976 after she spotted a quilt at the local county fair and replicated her own version of it using all her fabric from her bottom dresser drawer. Since then her fabric stash has grown and she’总是在寻找新技术来尝试。
The two purses are knitted and then felted, including the large flower. Below is a gorgeous embroidered peacock, which was a project that 维基 inherited when is was barely begun. The detail is exquisite and her choice of frame is perfect for the piece.
