French Knots and Art Quilts

This art quilt, Kamchatka, by Nancy Steidle, shows just how wonderful and diverse French knots can be.  Nancy used wool yarn, pearl cotton and french ribbons in her quilt.

During the month of June, while I am scrambling at home (where a move and a job change are in the works), I am sharing images and thoughts from Fiber Arts Fiesta, which took place in Albuquerque in May.
