Hi Kim, I guess I posted something that you didn't understand so I came looking for my orig post and did not find it, but I found your glass, funny how we might favor one color scheme over another. I think this turquoise one or lighter one best. Hope I find my post that didn't make sense. Perhaps, I'm just being friendly.
You seemed interested in joining our birthday block swap last month. Our July participant has had to drop out of the group. I'm wondering if you'd still be interested and want to take her place. I'll need to know soon so we can get you set up. You'll need to make a decision on a block for us to make you by June 1.
Yes, I love the colors in your dogs' avatar. I can see that you probably took the photo of the actual dog that is in your slide show. What a beautiful dog. I have completed several commissions for the Goldens. One is made from fabric strips and the other from fabric scraps or snippets.
You are so welcome. Yes, I absolutely love her Dr King quilt that she has on Etsy. I use Krylon UV-Resistant Clear Acrylic Coating Matte finish. I purchase mine from Dick Blick. You can probably find in anywhere Krylon spray paint is sold, such as a hardware store or even Walmart. It must be used in a well ventilated area. I used my patio and covered my patio with a large trash bag. I also let it dry between coats.
It was a pleasure looking at your quilts. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for the compliments on my quilts. Yes, it is liberating to be able to just quilt what you feel! I have done traditional and I appreciate them, but my heart goes to "artsy" quilts.
Most of the pieces are fused. The pieces are overlapped and I have sprayed them with an acrylic spray to preserve the color and protect the cotton. As a matter of fact, Gwen has just given me the most amazing hints on how to quilt over them. I will need to purchase threads and when I recieve them, I will try and quilt over a few. I like the flat look of a "portrait" in some of them.
Thanks for your interest. Have you seen Gwen's quilts where she did quilt the pieces down?
You may ask me any questions, it is okay. Smiles, Diana
I am so impressed by all your wonderful quilts......... I am happy to welcome you to our great site..... It's really fun and a learning thing also. I enjoy going through and checking out different quilts and reading all about everyone and how they are doing with sewing, quilting, and life in general!
It is a fun place to be and wish I had more time to enjoy, but have to get ready for work now!
Chat again soon!?!
