In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would post these photos from the early part of the century ;-). These are pictures of a quilt done in 2001 for a benefit auction for my son's high school, Notre Dame High School, Chattanooga, TN. It was great fun and now lives in Tennessee.
This is a recent quilt. I had not made a quilt in a while and felt the "call" to do so. Was going to make a simple fence rail, but decided to jazz it up a bit and cut some uneven strips and play with the placement a bit. I like the result. The finished quilt is approximately 70 x 70 inches and has a new home in Georgia.

Welcome to my new Blog. My name is Ellen Stone, thus the name "Rock". I love to create art in all mediums. Particularly acrylic painting, fiber art, quilting and mixed media. Some of my art is usable, quilts, pillows, bags etc. and some is strictly "fine art". I see inspiration everywhere and try to make it my own.
My first painting I am posting is called The Path. It is in a private collection in North Carolina. I love painting roads and pathways as they symbolize the journey of life and faith. Hope you like it and thanks for visiting
