Time Lapse, You Can Look Over My Shoulder

This is a time lapse of photos, following this piece of fiber art as it takes shape and become a real piece of art. A few photos along the way, it is a mixed media work, so I used some non quilty methods.

Time Lapse Art Quilt Progress check 1

I started my Time Lapse art quilt on Jan, 19. We’ll see how long making an art quilt takes me. Here is the first progress report.
Today is Jan. 27th, Here’s where I am at. It may show, but a lot of work has been done.

Defining the woman behind TAFA. An interview with Rachel Biel.

The world economy has changed dramatically in the last ten years and the United
States is no longer a stable economy that can support the arts like it used

to. As other emerging economies begin to have more disposable income,

they also begin to show an interest in the handmade lifestyle. I

figured if we all banded together and drove people to the same place, it would
be easier to be found. My mantra has been “Together we can do great things.”

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”

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.

60 MPH Sunset I finished the quilt.

So I did the unthinkable, gasp, I took a photo from a moving car. In fact I took several photos. After I downloaded to my computer, surprise, my phone took better photos than I expected. Several in particular I really liked, of a row of popular trees lining the highway silhouetted by the sunset. The minute I saw those photos, the first thing that popped into my mind was AN ART QUILT!!! .

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.

Impressionist art quilt

What I liked about this fabric was it’s impressionist style, the way it resembled a watercolor. I wanted keep focus on the painting itself, no fussiness to detract or obscure. . So, to preserve that element, I came up with my plan of action. Don’t cover the fabric by too much fussing. Easy on the thread painting and quilting.
