Quilits, wonderful Quilts MQX x

As promised, I’ll share a  few more quilts from the big MQX show. Pick out your faves and shout it on out! It’s interesting to see who likes what. Funny how tastes are so varied.

Did I mention last post, that there seemed to be more quilts with glimmer  and shimmer? I had to find out which methods were used, besides the obvious  metallic thread. It finally  occurred to me “What about those nice neat cards provided for each quilt?” Might the cards  shine some light on this question [excuse the pun]?” Goodness me yes. So here are a few more lovelies. I hope the glimmer is visible on film.

Gold embellishment, I’ll zoom in more next shot.

Closer examination, can you see the glint of gold? It appears to b the thread

He just glistens, how beautiful? Excuse me if this picture is a bit blurry, but I was very excited.

After c0llecting some information, I literally ran to the Superior Threads booth, with a salvaged snip of paper dredged from the bottom of my purse. It had the names of some of the products used on these gorg. quilts. “I gotta have these, a whole lot of these, in many many colors of these”. I blurted out when I saw the sales rep. He seemed, well, startled.  I was pretty urgent I suppose. It must have sounded as if I was asking him to call an ambulance. Yet,  didn’t everyone else who looked upon all this magnificence do just the same?  Certainly they must have, what was  wrong with this man? He should have become accustomed to it by now! I don’t know, is it possible for men to love glitter as much as women? Maybe not.

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifying. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.
