|This is my Fiberactions challenge quilt made using the word Structure -Structured Landscape 20" x 16"|
|It can be hung from any side, it changes with each turn.|
|I used a piece of hand dyed fabric from Vicki Welsh for the pool and batiks for everything else.|
|I did all the quilting free motion and I made life easier by only using Black Aurifil thread 50W. It looked more graphic, like one of the sketches in my sketchbook.|
|I used mistyfuse for the applique and for the facing. I'm putting together a tutorial for how to do facing with mistyfuse, I'll share it soon.|

I just got back from the International Quilt Festival. I went with my friend Sue. We had a lot of laughs and met lots of friends. We spent time in the Mistyfuse booth which was very cool. I also did a demo of my new pattern in Sue Pelland's booth using her Leaves Galore Template. I got to enjoy dinner with a lot of wonderful woman in the quilting world.
The New England Quilt Museum had a bag auction to raise money for the museum. I made this bag for our guilds donation to the auction. It was filled with items donated from other guild members Sue Pelland Designs, Deb Wednt, Michelle Civetti, and Linda Ramrath.
When I went to the International Quilt Festival in 2009 my friend June bought some gorgeous hand dyed fabrics from Marcia Derse. Just before I left for IQF last week June asked me to pick her up some more. I love to shop with other people's $$$ :) Marcia doesn't sell her hand dyed anymore because a manufacturer picked her up and is printing her whole line of fabrics. They are fantastic!
If you are a quilter, you have to go to IQF at least once...it's crazy fun :)
