Susan became very interested in a band that she discovered through NPR known as The David Wax Museum. The band combines American folk, Mexican son, and bits of bluegrass and the blues. After watching one of the band's videos she decided to create a work that illustrated the band.  There is, of course, quite a bit more to the story of David Wax Museum: 3 of potholders (Coins) in the Kitchen Tarot.

The quilt was begun 4-29-12 and finished on 6-9-12 and is 60.25" x 76.25" It is a whole cloth, painted quilt. To learn the whole story behind the quilt, click here.

Hearts Alive #2 is one of Sonya Lee Barrington's latest pieces of silk work.  It is a small piece measuring only 12" x 12."  It is made of dupioni silk, machine pieced, and hand appliqued.  Sonya hand quilted it with copper metallic thread and embellished it with Mother of Pearl vintage buttons, glass beads and other objects.  It hangs freely from a stand created from copper tubing.

In Episode 1012 - Beyond Cotton: Working with Wool and Silk with Sonya Lee Barrington, Sonya demonstrates how to work with wool while showing Ricky how to make a purse out of a jacket.  This quilt is also a "re-cycled" piece.  The quilt top is 100% recycled wool and the buttons are recycled as well. It is machine pieced; hand embroidered and hand quilted. The back is new Pendelton® wool and the batting is wool as well.  The quilt measures 48" x 72".

The Jigsaw site changed the look.  You can increase the puzzle to full screen by clicking the little box and arrow icon in the lower right corner.  You can see it in the picture below.

After you make it full screen use the gear icon to rescatter the pieces.

Alex began this quilt in a Charlotte Warr Andersen class at Asilomar.  She didn't want to do the face of a person, so she decided on the eagle.  It measures 66" x 72" and is pieced and appliqued.  It is her own original design and unfortunately, no pattern is available.
