Fiber Art Trees and 3D Foliage at Quilting Arts Make It University Open Studios

I have been invited to demonstrate in the Quilting Arts Make It University Open Studios On Saturday, November 6 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I will be demonstrating how to make 3 dimensional fiber art trees and foliage. This tree has been designated as part of The Village Project, a challenge issued by Kathy York. When she first approached me about participating in the project, the whole idea seemed quite intriguing. I knew what I would do for the house but my propensity for nature led me to inquire about trees for the project. The response was, "Go for it!" Never having made a 3 dimensional tree before, I was filled with ideas. About the same time, I was contacted by Lindsey Murray of Quilting Arts Magazine who asked if I might be interested in demonstrating some of my work. This fiber art tree seemed a perfect fit! This has been a challenging but rewarding experience. If you have a chance, please stop by and visit. I would love to see you!
