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.

Hat Boxes Quilt
The Hat Boxes Quilt is from Kaffe Fassett's book Passionate Patchwork. Another quilters must have. His use of color is so amazing. This quilt was made using floral fabrics with earth under tones for the divisions between the hat boxes. As an added punch of color, the had boxes are outlined in a blanket stitch in bright red fabric. The gloves and hankies are all vintage finds from yard sales. This is one of my favorite quilts and I have it in my bedroom so that I see it everyday!
