Hubby and I went to the annual art show in downtown Birmingham today - look at the treasures I found! Literally. An old piece of steel, a wonderfully rusty, curly piece of metal, and a piece of caution tape. I LOVE this kind of stuff. I can wrap vinegar soaked fabric around the metal piece to give them a rusty patina. I'm also planning to other fun things with the curly cue piece - I love its movement. And the caution tape - I'll bet I can sew through it, so it will definitely be added to a green quilt at some point.
And yes, we saw lots of cool artwork, too. We did actually buy one little thing. I'll show it to you tomorrow.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
