This month our group gathered at Dort Lee's say she lives off the beaten path would be an understatement. The ride to her home is quite a distance off a rural highway....along a very narrow, winding gravel road that at some point intersects a small creek. PTAer's are hardy souls......and we don't miss meetings, so when invited....we come.

She lives in a 100 year old home with charming out buildings sprinkled around the beautiful and serene property, filled will treasures of the past.

No wonder Dort creates such visually appealing landscape quilts!

For the last several months she's been concentrating on small wall quilts featuring birds. She says this new direction came about in an effort to use up her many fat quarters. I wish my fat quarters would inspire such works of arts from my studio!

Enjoy her very special one woman show.....and thank you Dort for sharing them with my readers.

We all oohed and aahed over this little charmer, which is only about 6" x 8". Believe it or not, the bench is made from lengths of ribbons. She's used inks and paints to provide texture and shadows..... Fabulous don't you think?

Ribbon bench is quite clever...not turned or raw seams :)
