Tuesday's Tiles - Chocolate and Chartreuse

Quilter's Tile - Chocolate and Chartreuse

I am amused by the fact that we, as fiber artists, often strive to make quilts that resemble flat paintings and other artists strive to add brush strokes and shading to mimic the look of texture.

We have that world of texture right at our finger tips.  We can employ the use of a vast number of three-dimensional techniques to create our art work. We have an unlimited supply of fibers which we can add to our flat surface. We have threads and stitching that can bring our work (or should we really say, play) to new heights.

In this week's Tuesday's Tile I've played (It was certainly more play than work.) with different yarns and a bit of gift wrap.

As I was looking at a roll of chartreuse wrapping paper, I noted on the label that it was metallic poly.


I know Poly.
Although, I usually address her by her given name, Poly Ester. (even when I'm not mad at her)

Poly and my sewing machine have been friends for a long time.

If this wrapping paper is poly, I can sew it! And, I did!

Before, I stitched I did have a little fun with a heat gun, warping Poly's personality at bit.

What's new with you? Have you been busy this week?
Have you created a tile that you would like to share? If you have, please add a comment.


  1. You are too funny! Poly Ester - what a name for a quilter. Perhaps I should mention it to my Son and DIL to consider for their soon to be daughter :-). Love the Tuesday's Tiles!

  2. You are so creative, Sharon! I love it!
