Detail from "Rain Dance," an original quilt by Sherrie Spangler

Monday, July 17, 2017


I'm a sucker for glowing colors, so I had to take some photos of my latest quilt glowing in the sun. I painted the fabric with Setacolor paints and added sparkle with foil candy wrappers, metallic mesh and lame.

I'm joining the blocks with a big whip stitch and hand-dyed perle cotton thread from Artfabrik.

I also love the way orange day lilies glow against blue-purple hydrangeas from our yard.

And last but not least, this Celtic band glows and shimmers with energy in a concert I saw last week at our little local Boat Shop (where they make boats). The trio is MAC (click here for bio), and they are fantastic!

Have a colorful day

Ooh, love your colors and shimmers! Will have to look for metallic mesh... a new one for me. And your floral photos are great!

Yes! The hydrangea and lily combo photos are yummy!
the Celtic music of MAC had me up and jigging about!!
