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.

Do You Dream in Color follow up -it’s a real quilt!

A few posts back, I mentioned an unfinished project I had restarted. Was I just having a little free motion fun? Or was I seriously considering this a legitimate quilt? Was this my guilty little pleasure, like some low brow TV show that you enjoy, but would never admit it?

Photo Editing Programs- New Tool For Designing Art Quilts?

I’m currently experimenting with what may prove to be a useful tool to generate a few new creative inspiration options. I’m sure this isn’t a unique idea that hasn’t been tried ideas sources to for creative quilt design.options quilt ideas. ideas for art quilts, photo editing programs.
I’ve been playing around with Photoshop and have had a few results that liked enough to put into my future projects folder. one looked like an old photo negative

Do You Dream In Color?

I vacillate between ” This is too insanely wild” and “Oh I’m just having a little fun”. I ask myself “If I ever finished it, would I have the nerve to put it in my shop?” I haven’t got a clue, but in the meantime, I still just having fun.

That’s a Wrap, Hollyhocks and Ladybugs

This is a floral art quilt, but I wanted to add a contemporary spin, a little non traditional. So I chose to give the flowers and stalks a disproportional profile. As my husband observed , it would be how the world might look to a little bug as he looked up at the huge world. hat’s a Wrap http://wp.me/pZYTG-3ar Here is the contemporary art quilt I’ve been working on

The Internet, A Shrinking World and Connecting With Hollyhock Lovers Everywhere!

An new owner of one of my art quilts found an interesting benefit in hanging fiber art.
An art quilt could add a level of comfort, I can see how it would feel more like home and less like an office. When she mentioned it, I thought of how comforting it was as a child, being wrapped in Grandma’s quilt. It would also block out the sounds of a noisy city, much more relaxing.

A Whole Lot Of Flowers!

What I found in making these, was that each new project you begin,, no matter how many spools of thread, or amounts of fabric that you own, there will always be at least one or more necessary colors that you don’t have. I needed a huge variety in the shades of red, Thus began the great “thread quest’, I can’t fathom that out of my entire collection of thread, massive as it is, I couldn’t find the exact shades of red that I wanted. Unbelievable, and I will provide pictures to impress upon you just how unbelievable this is..When I say that I have a massive stock of thread , enough to open my own store, it is no exaggeration.

Change is Good, Growth and New Beginnings.

I’m already thinking of fall, and the changes which it brings. That theme is behind my latest landscape art quilt, “Change, New Beginnings”. Wow, “time really does fly”, as the old adage goes! It becomes more evident and rings truer with each passing year. Change is inevitable, but with each change of season, we’re given a fresh start, of sorts. “I didn’t get to that last fall, but this year I’m going to….”. It’s up to us, the slate is clean, we can do the things which nagged away at us this past year. The changing of the seasons offers an opportunity for renewal. It’s a good time for change. Use it wisely because time really does fly!

A Feature in Art Quilting Studio Magazine

My issue of Art Quitting Studio has arrived.I’m in it. Just opened it up, thumbed through a few pages and there I was! Who’d a thunk it? A whole article, a 1 & 1/2 page feature. I’m buying several copies, before they change their minds.
I need someone to slap me across the face and say, “Get a hold of yourself woman”.IT’S HERE, IT’S HERE! My issue of Art Quitting Studio has arrived. And they weren’t kidding me, I’m in it. Just opened it up, thumbed through a few pages and there I was! Who’d a thunk it? A whole article, a 3 page feature. .

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?
