Cyber Fyber Exchange

Here's the beautiful fabric postcard # 78 and Artist Trading Card #111 (ATC) I received from artist Susan Lenz in her Cyber Fyber art exchange. She made more than 150 postcards and 130 ATC's to exchange with artists and she will show our art in an exhibit in January 2009. "The focus of this exhibition is to highlight the influences of Internet access for today's fiber artists." There are still a few postcards and ATCs available to trade so hurry if you want to join in on the fun.
Both of the cards I received were made by cutting up previously made artwork. Don't know if I could cut up completed work but I definitely think it would be a good way to use UFO's (unfinished objects). Susan was able to make many pieces out of her old work and they are being seen around the world. Now I need to make my small artworks to send to Susan.

Scrappy Color Play Miniature

September 2005 Journal Quilt 8.5 X 11 inches

Journal Quilt Project - Special Exhibit Houston International Quilt Show 2005
Made as a sample for my sister Donna’s class, her paper pieced pattern called for 3 inch squares but I reduced them to 2.75 (eek) to fit this project. It is a mix and match sampler; there are 6 pairs of blocks with the same pieces but each twin looks different based on color placement. See if you can find the match for each block. Quilt awarded 2nd place in Miniature category at 2007 Utah Quilt Guild Annual Meeting (QuiltFest). The ribbon was much larger than the quilt. I gave this quilt to my sister for Christmas 07 so I guess I need to hand it over to her now that I have it scanned and posted. There is a pattern available.
