When this blog first began, it featured all things quilty and was titled Art From The Heart. Years go by, interests morph, horizons expand, and all of a sudden you realize you are a quilter, yes...but also a spinner, weaver, knitter, crocheter, mixed media, fiber artist. The art is still from the heart, but the new name reflects my excitement with all things fiber! It's Fantabulous!
Thanks to the encouragement (and guilt inducing support) of an online UFO finishing group this batik is now a done deal! Yes, the scrambled layout is on purpose-it took me days to arrange! And the free-motion machine quilting (on my 35 year old Viking) includes my favorite 'snail shell' pattern plus lots of uplifting words, such as joy, peace, love, bless. All this in response to the last class instructor's comment, "I love quilts that make my eye travel, search for, and find surprises".
