Blog Hop: Book Chat with Lori Kennedy

Lori Kennedy and I are talking about the Stitching chapter of the book -- especially free motion quilting. Plus, Lori challenges me! It's going to be interesting to work with new materials, inspiration and techniques.



Here's the items I sent off to Lori to see how she would put her own spin on these unique materials. A scrap of denim, a piece of my original surface designed fabric with a leaf stamp, a bit of hand dyed linen, a piece of wool felt and a beautiful skein of variegated perle cotton. They are small pieces because of the best things about creating art quilt collages is working small!
