When I first heard of "door quilts" I thought it was sort of a strange idea. But, now I see what fun they can be. I designed a couple for my Celebrations class. They can be anything.... I designed name quilts for a child's room, but it doesn't have to be limited to that idea. It could be "Dad's Study"... or "Do Not Disturb, Homework in Process"... or "Nap Time" or a Holiday Quilt, quilts for various seasons, a memory quilt, a quilt to Celebrate your child's favorite team or movie star or.....

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.
