Maura Grace Ambrose  quilt maker + natural dyer living my dreams on a hilltop in the woods in the heart of Texas

These caught our eye at the park, to our discovery it’s tiny leaf galls formed by the Mealy Oak Gall Wasp. Galls are a source of tannin and helpful in the dye process —Just grind it up and soak your fiber! (A gall is formed because the tree is stimulated by the presence of the egg, and eventually the hatched larvae, to grow a structure around the wounded area. - Mr. Smarty Plants)

Finding early Spring wildflowers around our home: Spider Wort and Blue Phacelia. Hearing Ada tell a creative story, with her 3yr old voice, on harvesting color from flowers makes my heart beam.

It’s 65°F and sunny🌞perfect weather for stitching by the pool.🌊

A fun project, hand-dyed w natural fermentation indigo, and hand-stitched with Japanese sashiko thread. A quilt project I did for @johnmayer and @martinguitar many moons ago 🌙 it’s a one-off guitar blanket reminiscent of the XO Cover Art I did for his single; Bèyonce’s song⭐️🌝

There’s a couple spots left for the quilt workshop in July! Join me to learn how to create a quilt from start to finish. We'll cover piecing the top, hand-quilting using Japanese sashiko thread, and binding the edges. I'll provide all the materials necessary. No experience required. I keep this workshop small with only five participants. With this intimate group everyone will get individual attention and a solid start on creating a small quilt: folkfibers.com/workshops

My little slice of heaven is at Home.✨

Farm sink inspiration from a neighbors farm.🌻I love the optimism spring brings to make little improvements each year. Last year we installed the fence around the garden with our *own cedar posts (harvested from our forest!).🌳This year the goal is to make gates for the fence. Miraculously the fence alone has kept animals out of the garden thus far, but I’m noticing some nibbles, and we’ve seen a few wild rabbits run through.🐇 Now if we could just keep the leaf-cutter ants at bay, and take the poison-ivy out.🙏

I’m announcing my spring natural dye, and summer quilting workshops through the newsletter on Tuesday!

I teach the workshops at my home studio in Bastrop, Texas (we’re just 25 miles from Austin) No previous experience required, all skill levels and backgrounds welcome.✌️♥️🌏🌞🌙
