I'm finally getting back to Handpainting, Collage, and

cloth journal covers.  I'm surely not finished with all of the other projects I'm working on. But it is time to move on because I have customers that will be expecting journal cover for their gift giving, and I must not dissappoint them.  The journal covers are all one of a kind, which makes them especially unique.
If anyone knows the software that will allow me to point and click to fill the different areas in my designs without using a paint brush please let me know its name.

I have two more body warmers

ready to be bound and wrapped around somebody.  This quilt was really a challenge to me to quilt  because there are so many small pieces.  The squares in each block is one and one half inches before sewn into the block.  Quilting it was a challenge because I was by no means going to stitch in the ditch of anything here.  I decided to do a diagonal wavy line across the entire quilt and am satisfied with it.  This quilt is made to keep your lower body wrapped as you sit and watch that mystery or scary movie.  There is one more I hope to bind today as well.  Will post a pictue of it next time.
I'm painting some fabrics for my journal covers I sell at this time of the year.  Some will be hand painted, some pieced, some fused, you name it.  This is the time I experiment with different techniques since no two are alike.
Happy Quilting Friends.

Sold, Sold, Sold

I just sold three of my latest quilts made in 2010 and 2011.  Three of my quilts, "Mary Magdalene","Psalm 8", and" African Ladies" went to live in Brooklyn, NY just a few weeks ago.
Beginning this month on my website http://www.pettifordjonesquiltdesigns.com/ I will be featuring Debra Freeman McDowell, doll maker and clothing designer.  Debra's dolls are custom made, one of a kind, original design cloth dolls called "Dolls With Attitude".  The doll page is now under construction.  Please check my site and view the beautiful dolls that have been made and sold.  Since all dolls are different the dolls you see are only representative of the quality of workmanship you can expect in your doll.  Debra will be glad to make the doll of your dream.
