Little Fabric Boxes

Posted 5/11/15


We had our second annual fundraiser this year for the Idaho State University Department of Art, Art a la Carte. The whole department came together to hold open studios, a chili and cornbread dinner, and a silent art auction. Our fundraising this year will be used for student scholarships and visiting artists.  I had some art to donate, but I also wanted to include a small gift item, not just something to hang on the wall. I made these charming little fabric boxes from a wonderful pattern from Carol Fletcher. My version includes screenp rinting, stamping, collage, and machine quilting.

Carol Fletcher, designer of this Little Treasures quilt pattern, has had this pattern featured in Quilting Arts magazine issues. It is currently available as part of a free Quilting Arts e-book here. It is part of the Small Projects e-book project.

Thank you for sharing, Carol!
