This is the fiber art quilted postcard titled "Look Hoo-Hoo's Ten!" that I created for Quilting Arts Magazine's 10th anniversary celebration. I am so honored and excited that it was chosen to be published with the first grouping of postcards in their 10th anniversary issue! (Dec 2010/Jan 2011, pg. 7)
Three of the fabrics, the green for the owl face, the red background and the numeral ten, were ones that I won from a fabric scrap give away on Pokey Bolton's blog. Pokey is the editor and founder of the magazine so I thought it was fitting to use some of her very own fabric scraps for the anniversary postcard. I free motion machine stitched the designs and used layers of decorated netting and velvet to add texture. For the eyes I used parts of a snap and glass beads. I just love the way he turned out!
I have several larger sized owl pieces in my etsy shop www.bybethstudio.etsy.com and I'm always creating more. Happy Birthday Quilting Arts Magazine!
I am a stay-at-home mom who is also a quilt artist. I have a cute little etsy store http://bybethstudio.etsy.com that I really enjoy. I am a New Orleans native and I donate 10% of my sales to continued Katrina recovery efforts in the area. I taught elementary school for a total of 11 years in New Orleans and in Texas. I have had many miracles in my life and hope you enjoy reading about what goes on in my head during the days at home.
I am a horrible speller and and even worse typer. Add those 2 items to the fact that I usually get on-line late at night when my daughter is sleeping and well, let's just say my english teacher law review editor lawyer mom would be kept pretty busy editing my blog... (oh well!)
