  • Inspiration needed

    I am a traditional quilter and I would dearly love to do an art quilt. I've been doodling in a journal but nothing is really taking off. I don't know which 'topic' 'style' or 'subject' is me. I like so make different looking styles. I would like to keep to thread and fabric...

  • Inkjet Printers

    Hi, I'm fairly new to the Art Quilt world and want to purchase an inkjet printer to make use of some of the new products, i.e. printing onto cotton, organza, silk, canvas (all paper backed for printers) and lutradur. It seems that people like the Epsons the best. What do you have and how do you like...

  • Re: Forum Challenge - A Word Challenge - Homophones/Homographs/Homonyms

    For this challenge, I chose Homonyms and selected the words pray (to speak to a God), prey (a victim). For some reason I instantly thought of a praying mantis in a compromising position and praying that he would not become the next prey. I drew out the design and then had fun selecting the fabrics. I...

  • Re: Forum Challenge - It's My Nature

    My challenge piece is "A Font for Patrick" I also used this for a challenge piece for my local quilting guilt. Theme wise, it appeals to me more of what I strive for than what I am. Nature centers and calms me. This quilt represents a Celtic cross with a small spring dedicated to St. Patrick...

  • Re: Forum Challenge - It's My Nature

    I have really wanted to make a quilt with hummingbirds. I am crazy about birds and this challenge inspired me to come up with a design that included hummingbirds and two of my favorite flowers: orange trumpet vines and beebalm. It has been unusually cold here in Florida, and Im really missing all the...

  • Sea Turtle Quilt

    I decided to try something new with this quilt and work with felt. I created the image in photoshop and then took that to Kinko's and had it printed the actual size of the quilt. I began by making all of the sea vegetation first. I created the big red anemone out of individual pieces that I then...
