Today I met Vicki Welsh of “Field Trips in Fiber” blog fame for lunch. She lives and works not too far from where I live but we had never met. Since I’m off this week, it seemed natural to see if she could do lunch.
She has many talents. If it’s a fiber art, she can do it. She made a ton of art postcards for Christmas, I would’ve been lucky to have done a half dozen at most. She is a longarmer, although I’m not sure if she does quilts for clients.
I got the impression that her biggest passion is dyeing fabrics. She has an Etsy store for her hand-dyes and I bought some from her.
I like her gradients. Laura Wasilowski dyes her own fabrics too and uses them in her applique designs. I bought another of Laura’s patterns when I took her class at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Fest and I need fabric for it.
Aren’t they pretty? Check out Vicki’s Etsy store, she has every color imaginable plus tie-dye, sun prints, all kinds of neat stuff.
