Halloween Fridge Quilts

These are my own embroidery patterns that I've been working on. I've made little quilts out of them. I put magnets on the back so that I can hang them on the fridge. I'm going to make some more of these.

Scrappy Nine Patch

Quilt background is woven strips of fabric. Patches are little peices of scraps, hand embroidered. Quilt is 10 inches square. Fabrics are tea dyed and rusted.

Rusty Rose

This doll I call Rusty Rose. The recycled fashion doll was first covered with tissue paper, gessoed, and rusted with a two part rusting solutions. The fabric was rust dyed.

Bad hair day.

Frankie doing his usual activity of napping, woke up with messy hair.


I've been into making flowers lately. I've been practicing my ribbon roses. I really admire georgous ribbon roses, and some of the dyed ribbons that one can buy are so luxurious but a bit pricey. But crochet thread doesn't cost much, and these crocheted flowers look so vintage.

Valentive Hearts

These hearts were my Valentine project. I made so many, it will be a while before I get them all embellished. Frankie wasn't very interested.
