Do You Want to Watch Stitched?

I just spent an enjoyable 1 -1/4 hrs. sewing and watching Stitched, the documentary about three  controversial art quilters, Hollis Chatelain, Randall Cook and Caryl Bryer Fallert as they create their quilts for the 2010 International Quilt Show in Houston.

Cook created quite a stir when he entered this male nude quilt in 2007.

I took this picture right on my computer as I watched the show.

I have to say this is a stunning piece of fabric art.  Whether it's a "quilt" or not is where the controversary lies.

If you want to watch, Stitched, you can do it for free today and tomorrow by registering at this link.

While watching the documentary, I started my third fairy godmother, Knotzelena.
For this one I picked out all the elements I liked best from the ones I had printed.  I am so looking forward to watching this one progress.  She will have long hair with a knot on the top, big blue eyes, glasses, big smile, and scissors on a rope around her neck.

I had quite an enjoyable late afternoon today.

and Now I have Two

I have now made two quilting fairy godmothers. You can just tell that they would have very different personalities!  I have a feeling I will be doing quite a few of these this winter.




ScrapAnn is a stern, but loving fairy godmother.


I am happy with the colors I chose. I really like her red hair and purple glasses.


You can get free patterns for these at paperpanache.com.

I am Working on ScrapAnn

Fall is upon us and that means I am back in my sewing mode.

I am having such fun with the fairy godmothers from paperpanache.com. 

They really bring out the creative juices............this is my second one so  I know what to expect; it is fun to plan the colors, etc.

Here she is so far..............

I still need to make the last section -- her dress and necklace.

Linda at paperpanache.com has now made them free forever, so you can go there and print off as many different quilting fairy godmothers as you want.   If you like to paper piece, don't miss this opportunity!

I have no idea what I will end up doing with all of them, but I plan to make a few more this winter. 

If you have made one, I would love to hear how you are planning to use her.
