Fabric & Found Object Weaving article

A little while ago I submitted an article to Quilting Arts magazine about a new type of art quilt I had started making that involves weaving fabric and then incorporating found objects into the woven base. The article didn't make it into the print magazine but I'm very honored to have a condensed version of it published in their e-newsletter, Embellishments.



It appeared in my inbox this morning and features this quilt. (Other quilts using this technique can be seen here, here, here, here, here and here. And now that I've typed the word "here" six times it looks totally strange.)

You can see the full version of the article here. These are a lot of fun to make, you can do a lot with it. Hope you enjoy it!

Yes...when I opened the email I thought the art quilt looked somewhat familiar, like Lynn's work....and of course it was! Pleasant surprise and good article, I'd like to try it.

I enjoyed your article in Embellishments. I googled you and found your blog.
Your weaving has a nice freedom about it. I make pin woven bags and kits, which are much more structured. I am eager to try your version, and experience something new. Isn't it wonderful to try new things?
Thank you
