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.

Hands Reader Challenge

The hands reader challenge sponsored by Quilting Arts Magazine was a tough one for me.  I am not the best with coming up with ideas.  One of my favorite thoughts when I think of hands it the "Jeep Wave".   Anyone who owns a jeep wrangler knows "it's a jeep thing".  I decided to quilt my jeep wrangler with some happy go lucky hand wavers!
The quilt was made with a variety of fabric. I then hand painted the faces on the girls. The quilt includes machine and hand stitching!  I can't help it I just love my jeep and this quilt just makes me smile thinking about it.

  1. Wow - just googled "jeep wave" - I had no idea! I should probably start the "Honda wave" but I would be waving to half the cars out there. lol. This is very, very cute and clever!!
