Prayer flags

One of the art groups I belong to is doing a prayer flag exchange, and   I’ve just finished mine!

I sewed buttons on the bottom corners to give them some weight.   I made twenty of them, and I’m very happy with the finished product.   Thank you, Lynn, for making the screen so I could print them!

Self portrait

One of our challenges in the fabric art group Running With Scissors was to do a small self portrait quilt.   This is my offering.   I started by taking a photo of myself, upping the contrast, then I transferred the image to a silk screen.   I printed many little me images and cut them apart, then rearranged them with felt behind them until I was satisfied.   Add a little floss, a few buttons, and this is what you get.
