On being photogenic and other things. Is this what I really look like?

Quilts can be like people, Sometimes quilts just don’t photograph well. Me either, take 100 photos, you won’t get a good one I guarantee. I’m beginning to wonder is this what I really look like?

Polar Opposites. How Does Your Garden Go?

I’ve started two new garden quilts. They may both have garden themes, but they are polar
opposites. So here is a preview of these 2 unfinished garden art quilts. See what you think.
I think you will can get an inkling of the direction I am heading with each one.
So hear we go…

Can you say garden? How about Trending?

I’m on a garden art quilt rampage, or I think I may be doing what is called “trending”, but on a personal level. Honestly, I’m not entirely convinced,I have it right, there are so many new phrases that just go over my head.> For example, hash tags? What on earth are they? N0 clue, I likely stand out like a sore thumb, “What on earth is that woman talking about ?”.

Cherry Blossoms, It’s Raining Pink!

“It’s Raining Pink”. This art quilt is from the perspective of looking up the trunk of an old twisted cherry tree. It carries the scars gained from many years. As you look up you see a cloud of pink above. Your eyes follow the slow drift of a pink petal as it finally reaches the ground below your feet, that is covered with pink. Is it raining pink?

Cherry Blossoms time, the theme of my new art quilt

I love cherry trees, it’s breath taking to see each new tree as it is in full bloom. I love the romance of the pink “snow” which covers the ground after the blossoms fall. I love that glorious spectacle that occurs every year. The fact that it lasts  for only a brief  time, makes theContinue reading “Cherry Blossoms time, the theme of my new art quilt”

Whoa Nelly and Alphonse Mucha

I must apologize for an attempt last night [a really, really late night attempt] to post these two quilts. Somehow I posted a rejected draft, which was jumbled, incoherent, misspelled and unintelligible. To answer your obvious question, No, I had not been drinking heavily at the time nor was I having a psychotic break withContinue reading “Whoa Nelly and Alphonse Mucha”

Two Down, One Scraped? Who Rah!!

, there is so much beautiful fabric available, it’s hard to control the urge to start a new project with every new wonderful fabric you see or buy. It reminds me of a 2 year old running from one toy to the next until he has emptied his whole toy box. I always feel that I’m 4 or 5 projects behind.

Am I addicted to stress, 3 at once?

I’ve started work on 3 quilts, don’t ask me why. I usually take em one at a time.The silk background is completed and the silk art painting finished. I’ve just begun the thread work, which is now where near finished as you see. I’ll post updated pictures along the wayI added lots of pearl to my paint colors as I mixed them. So to continue the sparkle, shine theme I’m using quite a lot of metallic threads for the thread work.

A peek at the beginnings of my 60 MPA iphone quilt

Here’s a peek at a new art quilt I’ve started. I’m going to call it 60 MPH Out The Window’ I took several images from my iPhone and used them as the inspiration for this wall hanging.

A iphone photo I feel a quilt coming on.

A follow up to my iphone “sunset out of a moving car window ” photos. I have gotten a good start on an art quilt using some of the car window pics as an inspiration. I’ll post the small beginnings tomorrow.
