CRAZY QUILT wallhanging 2004

this CQ wall-hanging was made from a bag of scraps I found at an auction in 2004...most were very small pieces ... so I decided to practice making crazy quilt...I was new to CQ at that time...so I made 1 square and than another and another and so on...well, I liked the way they looked and made this wall-hanging...I also made a ton of CQ ATC's ....and I still have bags of these scraps left...LOL...

these were my very first fabric/fiber beads...made in early 2005...I used STIFFY as my bonding agent...and rolled the fabric on metal knitting needles and added funky fibers while they were still tacky...I find I use these beads a lot on projects....

HERE ARE SOME "VINTAGE SUZAN" MOMENTS................................ many many years ago I was making "wearable art" ...starting back in the 1960's...if I find any photo's from that time I will blog them!!! should be good for a laugh!!!!!

anyway, fast forward to the 1990's.....and here I posted photo's of 2 jackets I still own....I made these in the early 1990's and it looks like I can bring them back out now as "ALTERED DENIM ART JACKETS"....back than they were "WEARABLE ART" ... I did have a boutique back than and made and sold a lot of glizzy over the top embellished jackets and T's ...
