Rosie's Monkey Quilt

My 9 year old granddaughter drew a picture of a monkey in a tree.  I made a small quilted piece based on her design. I used some handdyed material from Kathy Loomis and from Wendy Richardson.  The piece is a raw edge applique.  I used embroidery floss to attach and to quilt the pieces.

Maeve Warrior Queen of Connaught

I took a workshop on calligraphic printing.  I wasn't pleased with what I made.  We used Gina's printing lab, and she challenged us to make something with the fabric we had made.  I cut mine up, and made a Celtic queen.  I called the piece Maeve: Warrior Queen of Connaught. Rosemary Hopkins
