Meet Bari J.

Bari J. is the author of a new book published by C & T, "Inspired to Sew." I took a look at her blog and was so impressed with her style, that I had to show you some photos of her work. The machine applique above includes a little selvage - now that's high style indeed! Visit her blog and see the pretty blue hexagon quilt.

Bari J (the J is for Jill) is also into quilts, collage, jewelry, handbags, crafts and clothing. She has designed three lines of fabric. Bari J likes to create patterns for vintage looks for modern women. Is that jumbo ric-rac in the quilt below?

She has such a unique style. I really like this. Can't wait to see the book. Has anybody seen it?

I'm going to keep an eye out for some of that giant rick rack. That gives an instant vintage look.

If you can't find giant rick rack, let me know. I know a couple of places here in Portland, OR that sell it!

Wow. Her book makes you think really traditional old days gone by quilting, then you see the chair!
