New Arrival

I arrived home to a new metre of dyed fabric from Lisa Walton of Dyed and Gone to Heaven in Australia.  I came across a reference to Lisa and her fabrics in a SAQA discussion about a year ago. I decided to try some of her fabric and found it worked extremely well for me. Both my Rice Fields and Homeless art pieces use primarily Lisa's fabrics. Lisa has a Metre Club where you receive a metre of dyed fabric every month. I am amazed at how her pieces inspire me to create.

Isn't this new piece wonderfully mysterious? I never know for sure what will be arriving in the mail. Some of the metres run an entire gamut of colors. Others are more monochromatic, like this one. I can't wait to create something with this piece. I am immediately thinking of the sea..... Will keep you posted!


  1. Your website and blog look great!!

  2. Thanks for your lovely comments about my Monthly Metre Club and the fabrics. I love seeing what you do with them.

  3. Lisa's fabrics are gorgeous, aren't they! And indeed very inspiring - I have made 2 wholecloth quilts now with her fabrics. Can't wait to see what you will do with this one!
