Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Week 30 Mackinac Island

Week 30 is a photo quilt of mackinac island. This photo was taken while leaving the island on the ferry. It was the perfect day. The photo was printed out on photo fabric. The flowers were cut from fabric from an upholstery book using the Tim Holtz Vagabond cutter. They were sewn on with a button in the center. The Mackinac was stamped on fabric and sewn on. The word "august" was taken from a calendar from 1961. A fun photo quilt commemorating one of the best days of summer.
