Video summary: The video below was from a Nancy Zeiman TV episode that shows how to prepare the Autumn Leaf Appliques for the Falling Leaves Art Quilt below. It runs about 7 minutes and shows the process using a needle felting machine with tulle fabric, then free-motion embroidery, to create the leaves which were then stitched onto the finished quilt.

Fabric and Fiber Artist

I have been creating quilts for 33 years, exhibiting my art quilts in local, regional and national juried quilt competitions and shows with several awards and publishing opportunities in magazines, books and calendars.
I have been teaching quilting and fiber art in local quilt shops, Adult Education courses, Quilting Guilds, Artist-In-Residencies in local schools and was an Adjunct Instructor in the Fine Arts department at The University of Valley Forge in southeast Pennsylvania for 6 years. I have also been an Educator in the sewing industry for several companies.
As an art quilter, I found myself becoming more and more frustrated with traditional quilting methods that didn’t give me feathered edges, or gradations, or the texture in my work that I wanted – especially with creating trees and clouds. I use wool collected from people and animals I knew personally and began the journey of translating traditional wet felting and hand felting projects into Machine Needle Felted Art – especially subjects related to nature and natural objects.
The style of the Impressionistic painters of the 19th century, such as Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir and Vincent Van Gogh have always looked more like fabric than paint to me and I've wanted to try to duplicate them using the medium of wool fibers. I began building a stash of yarns and rovings for my future textured landscape quilts, not knowing how to use them yet and by trial and error, produced some beginning projects that I finished and hung on my walls.
I purchased a needle felting machine and began to create what I knew was possible with wool and, of course, made them into wall quilts. These are for sale here on this site. I also wrote a book about my process and it is also for sale here as a digital download called, "The Art of Machine Needle Felting."

Enjoy this site and contact me if you have any questions.

    From the first time I fell in love with quilts I saw them as art. Design, color, pattern, like a painting or puzzle was entirely up to me to formulate. I continually experimented with new ways to make fabric “talk” trying unusual combinations.
