Quilt! Knit! Stitch!

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! is coming to Portland, OR on August 14-16, and I have 2 pieces in the Fabulous Fiber exhibit!    The show is brand new, and managed by the great folks at Quilts, Inc.
Lunatic Fringe by Wendy L Starn
Lunatic Fringe is a knitted shawl, original design, hand knitted by me, using 2 strands of cotton  yarn throughout.  I graphed the design on knitter's graph paper and learned some new techniques as I went along.  
Orb Weaver by Wendy L Starn
 Orb Weaver, also a shawl, is midnight blue velvet, machine stitched with metallic silver thread and hand beaded with hundreds of clear iridescent seed beads to look like drops of dew.  Each bead is hand knotted on the inside.  I also made the fringe using chainette yarn and larger iridescent beads.

I won't be able to be at the show, but if you are lucky enough to attend, enjoy!

These are beautiful! I especially like the Lunatic Fringe, but then I love lime green.

Both are fabulous! Like Norma, one of my favorite colors is lime green (or chartreuse as I like to call it), so I'm drawn to the first one.
