Name This Baby


  • FEATURE ARTICLE:  Name This Baby

Remember this one?


I finally got around to quilting this baby.  I’m having a contest to name it.  If you come up with the winning name, I will send you a downloadable picture you can print out at a decent size!    So put on those thinking caps, and answer this question:  What does it make you feel like?  Please help me name this baby by  commenting in the comment section and submit your name.  I will announce the winner next week.  😀

Here is the finished piece:  Can you tell I was having fun with feathers? There is bobbin stitching, hand painted fabric, hand dyed fabric by Sherol Lappala, batiks, and even a few scraps of my shibori hand dyes.  I always say, whatever gets the job done.

Wedding gifts, grad gifts, anniversary gifts, birthdays are all good excuses to give someone a gorgeous Giclee print of one of my textile paintings.  Please email me ( if you are interested in ordering any of my work in a museum quality print.  Notecards are also available.  Calendars might be good too.  What do you think?

And don’t forget, I make custom commissions too!  Read what my client Glenda had to say about her custom commission experience:

“Normally, I would be anxious about commissioning someone to do a work of art such as this. However, I felt a connection to you when Leigh showed me your work. It resonated with me and when I met you, you seemed almost a personification of your work. I immediately felt comfortable with you and knew that what you would create would be stunning. And it is!”
