Spring, spring , spring
is here. With the prospect of all the lovely flowers to come, another thing comes to mind, art quilts with wonderful flowers and the sights of spring, summer and even into fall. .
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?
I’ve been rattling off about being featured in Art Quilting Studio magazine. The feature will follow the progress of making this quilt, and the inspiration behind it. It was about finding inspiration everywhere and grab a pic of anything that interests you. It doesn’t have to be super high quality photography. Take your phone andContinue reading “Today’s the day, I’m excited!!”
What happened to the time lapse? I haven’t posted any updates on my time-lapse/Hollyhock art quilt lately. The concept of a “time lapse” art quilt, was following progress at regular intervals. It’s been a busy month and I haven’t spent much time working on it. Recently, after a week of daily proclamations made on my blog, that IContinue reading “Exclamation Points and Wink Addictions, I’ve Finished My Hollyhock Art Quilt!!!!!-wink, wink!”
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?
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”
, 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.
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.
I’ve just recently received a book from the talented UK fiber artist Marion Marnett. Marion has written about a product named Lutradur. As far as I can determine, it seems to be relatively unknown here in the states, certainly used infrequently. .Marion has provided information about what it is,it’s properties & application. I’m curious to learn more, perhaps you will be too.
As many people around the Portland area are aware, the MQX West show opened this week. It was everything I had hoped for and then some. I am sharing my impressions and photos of some of my favorite quilts. Two installments to cover it all.
Marion Barnett, is a Scottish born fiber artist, who now resides in the UK., interview to post nrxt week, keep on the lok out for it.
