Back To Quilting from The Snarky Quilter

I haven’t abandoned quilting amidst my printing and collaging. In fact, I finished “Whitewashed,” sewing straight line arrow heads with off white thread set at varying intervals. After a long time (years?) without buying a quilting book, I bought Jacquie … Continue reading

Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch from The Snarky Quilter

As a matter of fact I have been sewing; in between collaging, printing, and virtual gallery viewing. Last month I improvised a piece from leftover blocks and some Grunge fabric I had forgotten I had. I overprinted my leftovers with … Continue reading

Spring Green from The Snarky Quilter

Green has finally returned to northeast Ohio, and my eyes can’t get enough of it. A mixed media piece I’m working on uses a lot of what I thought was spring green. It turns out that my crayon memories are … Continue reading

Vertigo, Not Whiplash from The Snarky Quilter

Earlier I mentioned pieces that I kept pulling off my design wall to make room for work that was flowing more easily and I actually had a plan for. I estimate “Vertigo” was on and off the design wall at … Continue reading

Not So Scientific Experiments from The Snarky Quilter

As everyone knows, you need a good stockpile of cool bits to create collages. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it as I kluge fiber and paper together to build up my stockpile. First, I unearthed diluted Setacolor paint … Continue reading

Soldiering On With Quilting from The Snarky Quilter

My quilt “Fortune and Fate” is now almost ready for a facing. I just need to decide if I want to rip out some stitching around fabric that’s ripply before I seal the deal. How did those ripples happen? User … Continue reading

My Paper Route from The Snarky Quilter

Quilting is inching along at a tortoise-like pace to spare the tendonitis in my arm. I allow myself about half an hour each day. To do something quickly I’ve made still more collages using fused fabric and paper and glue. … Continue reading

Sewing Is Happening In Moderation from The Snarky Quilter

Like many of you, more time on my hands hasn’t translated into more artistic work done. For one, I decided it was time to¬† learn how to collage. I know, I know, how hard can it be to cut up … Continue reading

Strange Times from The Snarky Quilter

Who knew quarter inch wide elastic would become such a sought after commodity? And the surge of videos on how to make bias tape is another sign of our times. Then, there is a rush to buy HEPA vacuum cleaner … Continue reading

From A Distance from The Snarky Quilter

My husband and I are well stuck into our current isolation, and we’re glad our house is large enough to allow us to have our own spaces. Otherwise, we’d be tripping over each other. Of course one of my main … Continue reading

Work Slowdown from The Snarky Quilter

The pace of the creative work I’m doing seems to match that of our economy right now. That’s because I’m doing hand sewing, not one of my stronger skills. A few weeks ago I showed you set in circle blocks … Continue reading

The Inspiration of Limitations from The Snarky Quilter

Too often I trip myself up with a lack of focus in my work. I start with an idea that cascades into yet other ideas and, in the end, I realize none of them well because I try to do … Continue reading

New Year, New Start from The Snarky Quilter

It’s just past Epiphany and I have completed my first top of 2020, surely a record for me. Of course conception began quite a few months ago, and the “father,” Frank Lloyd Wright, has long since departed. Many years ago … Continue reading

Back To Business from The Snarky Quilter

Now that I have my save the planet message out of my system I’ll return to my usual programming. Lately I’ve been playing with additions to old surface design pieces and using up scraps and pre-assembled bits. Thanks to an … Continue reading

Button, Button, Do I Want Buttons? from The Snarky Quilter

A recent almost-finish has me flummoxed about what, if any, embellishments to add to it. As a mashup of ice dyed fabric, curved bias strips, and sashing it leans toward the arty side but pulls pack to traditional with that … Continue reading

Summer Is Done from The Snarky Quilter

I realize the title makes me sound as if I’ve been seriously out of touch with reality, but I’m talking about my Nova Scotia tidal marsh landscape series. The fourth one, summer, is close to completion, some five years after … Continue reading

Weird Fabric Finds A Home from The Snarky Quilter

Several years ago I snapped up a yard of odd mottled rose/gray fabric because it was just $5. Ever since it’s been hanging with my yardage, being passed over each time I look for a new quilt palette. Finally I … Continue reading
