Hi Jude, I have been sewing, quilting, and oil painting since eight years old, but when I first saw art quilting and all the things you can do with textiles, I really found inspiration, too. I have asked alot of questions on this site and always get an answer and help. Also, I buy the Quilting Arts magazine and Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. There are always detailed projects to do and lots of inspiration. I also like that they have ads that can find you just about anything you need. Where to start? Maybe find an anrticle in one of these magazines, or something off this site, and oh, the wonderful books there are now for art quilting, fabric painting and such. I am getting ready to try the silk painting in the latest issue of Quilting Arts, waiting for the silk, I am very rural and have to order things online, no fabric or quilt shops around here. Give it a try, and ask these artists questions on this forum, you will be happy at how much help they are. Welcome. Linnet.
Welcome Jude! So glad to have you with us! If you need anything, let us know.
