I love hand dyeing my own fabrics.  Then I love exploring the capabilities of my various machines.

     An electric cutter machine creates perfect circles & ovals in heavy interfacing for appliqué templates.  It creates the perfect crisp edge for my turned edge machine applique. My sewing machines are used for accurate piecing and decorative embroidery stitches to enhance the appliqués. And my sit down longarm is used for freehand quilting, including ruler work. 

     A nod to traditional quilt techniques is made  by adding the Yo-Yo's. My only handwork is to attach the yo-yo’s and add beads.
