Aryn and Cyber Fyber

Today I made my two bug jar blocks for Aryn’s quilt. This is being made through Quilts for Comfort, a great program that provides gifts for the brothers and sisters of ill children, a source of comfort while Mom and Dad are away from home spending time with the ill sibling during treatments, hospital stays, etc. It’s a truly great program.

I also made my postcard and artist trading card for the Cyber Fyber exhibition in 2009. Here is my postcard. It’s a landscape, a sunset behind the mountains on top, a waterfall cascading down the mountain, a row of trees in the middle ground.

Cyber Fyber
is the brainchild of Susan, a friend of mine and former employer from South Carolina. She is a talented fiber artist. Susan came up with the idea of developing an exhibit focusing on the supportive, global community of fiber artists here on the internet. Her project will be a physical exhibit throughout 2009 in Columbia, South Carolina.

This is my Artist Trading Card:


I started each of these with a scrap block/quilted piece, and built out from it. The trading card started with the teal/turquoise/tan hourglass block in the center, the postcard with the pink sawtooth strip near the top.

Not my quilt, this was on display at the Iowa State Fair…more to come from there later this week…
