Bent Needle - March Edition

I'm delighted to have my artwork made in a technique I call "Ortwork" featured in the Bent Needle - March Edition. This month's topic for that online journal is scrap quilts. There are many wonderful ideas for making and links for viewing scrap quilts in this edition. Go here to check it out. To view all the weblog postings about this method in which I use orts (scraps of fabric and thread ends) to create quilts, click on the label attached at the end of this one.

To see a slideshow of the pieces I've made featuring the "Ortwork" technique go here and click on the slideshow setting.

You are incredibly prolific, the Ortwork album is amazing. I especially liked Vincent's Flowers and the Daisies. Vincent's, I thought I could be looking at a painting! Love your use of color--

Congrats on the Bent Needle article- it did a nice job of showcasing your work.
