It was so exciting to get a package of gorgeous fabrics in today's mail! One of the blogs I follow is Field Trips in Fiber written by Vicki Welsh, . Vicki is a wonderfully creative quilter and artist who hand dyes fabrics. She has been encouraging her readers to get busy finishing up UFO's so we can get to work on our Dream Quilt project. I've been commenting just to keep myself on task with my UFO's, and much to my surprise, she had a drawing to win a yard of her hand dyed fabric - and I was the winner!
We sent a couple e-mails back and forth, and she generously sent these luscious light blue pieces. Thank you, Vicki! I'm planning to use them to make my dream project...a Storm at Sea quilt. (Which I constantly keep calling Ocean Waves for some reason.) Now I have all the fabrics, and the pattern, so this fall/winter it's 'game on' for Storm at Sea. No excuses.
Vicki has a great Etsy shop where you can get some of these, and many more, wonderful fabrics for your own special project. The weight and quality of the fabric is very good, and her colors are so clear.
In addition to her fabrics, and her quilting, Vicki is an amazing artist in a number of other mediums. She is creating a mosaic wall she in her home, and makes lovely bowls with slumped glass. She also makes beautiful quilted postcards for her family and friends and shares how to make them on her blog. Someday I'm going to give that a try!
