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.

An Apple A Day......

 This quilt is from the book Quilting with My Sister by Barbara Brandeburg and Teri Christopherson. This is a quilters must have. I have actually three quilts in progress from this one book. They have such an amazing eye! This one is titled "apples" and is in the hearth and home section.  For those that know me, there is no hearth and my home is a small apartment. I still find these very feminine quilts so cheerful. This quilt I finished 100% on my own. I find now that I like to have my quilts professionally quilted as I just don't have the time to quilt them, nor the patience. Not to mention they come out exquisite when done on a long arm machine. This is one of the few that I did from start to finish on my own. Remember an apple a day keeps those doctors away.......
