I love making landscapes, especially landscapes that have some form of moving water – waves coming into shore, waterfalls, streams, rapids and ripples. There is an art to making water in motion, and in this class, you will learn many techniques that will give your water scene that realism that makes your scene come alive!

Deciding what to do with my stitch along project at this point was probably the hardest part of the whole challenge for me, but I decided I might make this one into a cushion - after all, I could do with some fresh covers!

My finished block ended up a little over 15" but I figured that was fine for now, I'll use the excess for straightening up later once I get an idea of where I'll be cutting.

An Introduction to Abstract Art

Posted by on 18 March 2017 | 0 Comments

More Abstract Art for quiltmakers - "fragment" by Elizabeth BartonOver the five lessons in More Abstract Art for Quiltermakers, we’re going to explore more aspects of abstract art. In my first Abstract art for Quiltmakers class we looked at the lives and work, ideas and processes, of female abstract artists, artists often overlooked. In this Abstract Art for Quiltmakers Part 2, I’d like to focus on the best known and most influential abstract artists, regardless of whether they are male or female, though (in the way of things!) most of them will be male.

Honestly, I had no idea what I was going to do with these strips before I started. I could probably just join them up but then that would be a little boring. I did decide to join two strips together to see where it took me.black and white strips joined

Montage Quilting Part Two

Today I wanted to share this fun little video that Marilyn Belford made about her Montage Quilting class. If you didn't already know, Marilyn creates exquisite quilts and teaches how she does that. A big part of creating the right art quilt is in the designing which is all covered in Part One of Montage Quilting, and Part Two is all about putting your design into fabric, from enlarging the design to making templates and transferring your design into fabric and stitching. By the end of this two-part course, you will have your own unique art quilt.
