I was contacted by the editor of Art Quilting Studio magazine recently. At the editor’s request, I submitted a couple of my art quilts for consideration to be published in an upcoming issue. I’ve been contacted before and had an article about me and one of my art quilts published, so I was hoping to be included in another issue.
. When the second editor contacted me just informed me that my art quilt WAS accepted for the the upcoming issue, I was thrilled!. … Out of the Blue!
I’ve been pretty busy last few months working on a commissioned piece. I really enjoyed working on it and I’m happy with how it turned out.
I took a moment to catch my breath and now I’ve started a new art quilt. It’s an abstract this time.
I love the colors orange and dark blue when they are used together. They set each other off and look awesome. When I painted the silk I wanted to feature those two colors in deep rich concentrations. I also added some elements of metallic gold and copper in there.
Here are a few shots of this new quilt in progress. It’s an abstract. I’ve finished the the applique and begun the thread painting. I want a very linear look.
I admit it, I love thrift store shopping. I don’t know why this admission is a bit embarrassing. It’s true, I enjoy it. It’s a treasure hunt, you never know what you’ll find. That’s part of it’s appeal. When you discover something unexpected, that you just love, it feels like you won the prize.
