The "girls" are going to Houston!

I'm thrilled to hear my "Omelet Sisters" quilt has been juried into A World of Beauty at the Houston International Quilt Festival this Fall!

We had four urban chickens in our backyard for a while. They were such fun to watch.  

 They were quite young when they arrived from my friend Vicki's farm in Terrell.





I made this quilt using images of our chickens.

 The Omelet Sisters - 36 x 21”

The background is hand-dyed sateen and the leaves are 
stenciled with fabric paint using a freezer paper stencil. 
The chickens are thread painted on an inkjet print on fabric.

I hope to see you at the show!
