Hello, Thanks for visiting!
I have been designing and creating lovely fabric art baskets for over 3 years. I also love to make quilts, and over 4 years ago started using some of my wonderful quilting fabrics in a great new way making coiled baskets, trivets and bags. I hand wrap high quality fabric around cotton clothesline, which I then hand coil and machine sew into unique tote bags, purses, baskets, bowls, hot pads, trivets, tissue box covers, coasters and more. I use the raw edge technique to give each item wonderful texture.
I have been sewing for about 40 years. I started quilting over 20 years ago and have made over 200 quilts. I only use high quality 100% cotton fabric and warm and natural cotton batting in my quilts. I am the volunteer coordinator for our local quilting guild, Artful Hands Quilting Guild. I enjoy making…
