We Love Moms :: 1 Sheep, 2 Sheep

welovemoms2

This project may not apply to all moms, but it’s a definite winner for some, mine included. My mom has been a crocheter and a knitter since she was in her teens. Taught by her grandmother, it’s something that has been passed down from generation to generation, even to me! For as long as I can remember, my mom has collected little sheep figurines, artwork and things of the like. It’s not overpowering, but just the right amount and classy to boot. Something tells me this wall hanging would be a perfect addition. Are any of your moms yarn crafty?

About Jackie:
Jackie is a quilt artist that has had her quilts juried in Canadian and American Shows. She started off in traditional quilts with her first quilt being a Trip Around the World. From that traditional quilt, Jackie made a few more bed quilts, but soon got tired of following patterns.

Jackie loves doing her own thing, not following the rules and wanted her quilts to pop. She disliked that they laid flat and that’s when her 3 dimensional work was born. She hand dyes most of her own fabric. Jackie now designs art quilts using original 3D technique that literally makes the objects stand out on the background. She has also started writing a column for the quarterly magazine for the Canadian Quilting Association. Her articles take on a humorous approach to quilting.

Jackie enjoys teaching others about her techniques and encourages them to explore their creativity.
