My Art Quilts Need a New Home. Do you realize

I’m going to put my big girl pants on! I can fix this mess all by myself!

My art quilts need a new home. My blog theme has imploded and I need to find another.Wordpress has so many new shiney themes that they let you preview to see how they fit, like trying on clothes at a dept.store. Does this fit? How does it look on me?

EXCUSE ME FOR THE MESS, WE’RE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Some major mafunctions oñ my site theme have made it necessary to make a few changes around here. We’re { by saying we’re, I really mean me, a scàrey thought for sure) changing themes i’m going to arrempr a revamp as well. Aft all,  it will already be a mess for a while anyway, right?Continue reading “EXCUSE ME FOR THE MESS, WE’RE UNDER CONSTRUCTION”

Contrast, make your art quilts POP!

Do you want to stand out in a crowd of people dressed in black? Wear white.
Contrast can make an impact.

Wear white.

Strong contrasts make things stand out, they are noticed immediately, commanding your attention. A strong contrast will intensify the impact cf the contrasting items. What this brings to my mind is an image of a elderly woman with bright dyed red hair pulled into two pigtails, one on either side of her head.This all goes to show how memorable contrasts can be.

How to manage my 24

There are only 24 hours in any given day, no more, no less.

Funny thing, everyone has those same 24 hours. So how do they manage? Answer? Scheduling. Planning ahead for the allotment of time they wish to devote to each activity.

So the question I have for myself is “What am I going to do with my 24?”

What’s This? Am I Going Traditional?

Here’s a baby quilt, with a tea party theme. It could make a cute table topper too.
The hand turned applique tea pots and cups are in small blue prints. They rest on a center square of yellow fabric that has tiny blue tea cups over it. It is darling fabric. I did a bit of fun quilting, feathers around the borders and wisps of steam coming from the tea cups.
The white outer border fabric has lightly colored pastel teapots

A busy little bee, that’s me! Part 2

Most Etsy sellers are singular artisans making and selling their work, one piece at a time. They aren’t pumping out large quintiles of assembly line products. That’s the attraction.

Still, it’s challenging to keep shops full after several sales, the purpose of this whole exercise

It’s a happy “problem” to have. The best part is you can give yourself permission to work, focused on just what you love.!

It’s A Stained Glass Window

Now getting back to this particular art quilt, a stained glass window wall-hanging. it was a fun quilt to work on. I tried to make it look like a realistic stained glass window. The tricky part was to how could I create the illusion of light behind the panes, subtle, without it looking too obvious. I definitely didn’t want shafts of light shining down.

Update, Whew. I’ve Been Keeping Busy

I’ve been working fast and furious to finish several projects. I thought you might like to see a few of the finished fiber art quilts.
