|Some of my Fabulous Folded Bags and my new sign for my booth that I had printed at Spoonflower!|
The next item for you is from my dear friend and amazing quilt artist Jamie Fingal! Yeah Jamie!!! Jamie is an amazing artist, writer, teacher and friend. We met about 5 years ago and she has never quit inspiring me to reach higher and dig deeper in my art quilt life. She also introduced me to Moo Cards, which I love and use all the time. They are a business card company that will print your photos on business cards, multiple photos up to 50. So it is like carrying around a mini portfolio. Here is her card she has included with a picture of one of her art quilts.
|Jamie recently had surgery and a bunch of her friends sent her|
Valentines and get well wishes which I put together and delivered.
I was worried she was lonely but found she was being watched
She is also a curator and curates shows through the Dinner at Eight Artists. I have been honored to be invited to have my pieces juried for her shows and they travel the world, it is very exciting. She writes articles for Quilting Arts Magazine and has written a book too, wow, I know what your thinking, she is amazing! How does anyone do so much? Well I am not done yet, she also has a heart for philanthropy work and has a House Quilt Projects for returning Veterans. If you see her on Facebook you know she has a standard line, Whats for Dinner? She has a large following and now Quilting Inc is taking it one step farther and they have a contest going that will be shown in Houston, centered around
Jamie' s daily question! Check it out on her blog. Her bright art quilts and zippers are her signature style and she wins time after time with her innovative quilts. I hope you will check out her sites and blogs and maybe sign up to do a house quilt for a special veteran coming home from war and her Whats for dinner challenge! And now the drum roll please..... Her gift for our goodie bag is 2 packages of Misty Fuse fusible, one in black and one in white plus a Goddess Thermal Pressing sheet for appliqué! She uses these products in her quilts and loves them. Misty fuse keeps your quilts soft and does not leave that stiff feel often seen with other fusibles. Please visit Jamie and thank her for her gifts. Thank you so much Jamie for your generosity and for your wonderful addition to our goodie bag!!
