I am very excited today to share several customer projects. You know that nothing makes me happier than seeing what you do with the fabric. Did you know that if you share something you've made with my fabric that you get a 20% discount that's good for 60 days? Yes! You can submit your project and see all of the other customer projects in the Customer Gallery.
I got the pleasure of meeting Louse Hall last year at AQS Lancaster. I see her work more as sculpture than quilting. This piece is dimensional textile art with machine and hand stitching mounted on painted canvas. It's made with the Red Sunset Gradient. She sells her work and this one has sold. We are always happy to hear about fiber artists successfully selling their work!
Patricia Caldwell, aka, The Butterfly Quilter, has been a fiber artist for over 25 years. She has been published in several magazines, has had several gallery shows and sells her original art in her Etsy shop. She works magic with fabric and I'm humbled that she chooses my fabric for some of her art. You can follow her on Facebook. She was the first person to quilt up one of my Crystal fabrics and is working on the second one now. I believe this one was called Mica. You can see more close up photos of this in her Etsy shop.
Here's another one from Patricia. Her Dandelion quilt is all threadwork on the Rocky Road Gradient. There are more photos in her Etsy shop.
This quit is very near and dear to my heart. People buy the shibori fabrics and I find that they are often "afraid" to cut into them. Not Susan Lamatrice! I love that she took her collection and made them the feature of her quilt. The orange background frames them perfectly. You can follow Susan on Instagram.
This last quilt is from one of my local quilting friends, Margaret Griffiths. Margaret has a very high stress job at an advertising agency and the creativity that she relies on there really shines through in her quilts. She makes A LOT of quilts! She loves doing challenges and that's how this quilt was born. It was a color crayon challenge; she got light purple, purple and pink. She used Stash Packs for this one. You can see a close up photo on her blog.
If you aren't inspired by these quilts then I can't help you!

I really like the shibori quilt and the challenge quilt. My guild is doing a crayon challenge this year and today I picked burnt orange and wisteria. Gotta see what I've got in the stash...

All of the art work from your customers is stunning! Of course your fabric is too :)

I love that Louise Hall one. I can't find much of her on the web. Do you have anywhere to look? Does she have a website of her own? It's like she is invisible....
