  • Designing with colour

    Does anyone know where I can get a DMY colour wheel to help me in my use of colour in my designs? A UK source would be preferable, as that is where I am located. Hope someone can help. Thanks

  • Ocean Wave Wall Hanging Art Quilt...

    This is a recent project I completed for my mother. You can also see my entire web posting about it at : http://auraquilts.com/archives/305 This was the first quilt block that I hand pieced for my mother’s quilt. I hated the fabrics combined so I set it aside for over three years thinking I would...

  • Suggestions On Design - Before I cut the fabric

    I have a quilt planned and wanted some advice on the design, before I start cutting my fabric. The quilt will be 52" square. The background is a multi tone blue (sky) and the sunflower blocks (2 shown as line only in blue area) will be the same color as the background fabric. This is just a small...

  • A design improvement

    Hello Everyone, I want to share with you a design flaw I had and how I improved on it. If you go to my name (spirit2sew) and look at my files, you'll see a quilt called "Three Bales". I had that quilt critiqued by Sandra Sider and she recommended 3 improvements. One was to remove the clouds...

    Belinda, Thanks for taking the time to respond. I've been reading a tour book about the places we want to see and I think that I"ll be able to immerse myself during the 5 weeks. I think it will be important for me to add words as you suggest so that I know what my intent was when I did the sketch...

    Approachable Art, My husband has a high quality camera and he is taking photos to remember the trip by. My camera is just a point and shoot (digital) and I'm using it to gather images for art later on. I'll stick them in photoshop and manipulate them, use parts of them, etc. to create art quilts...

    Judy, thanks for the response. I like the advice of reproducing the colors. I once did an exercise on a photo of a bouquet of flowers . The goal was to estimate the percentage of each color in the photo and then create a study using squares and rectangles of those colors in the percentage they appear...

    Butterfly, thanks for the response. Good advice. You are correct in that senses other than sight can lead to compositions and some of it will be from my subconscious. I'll try to keep in touch but I will probably get limited time at Internet cafes.

  • New designs

    Hi Everyone, I'm very excited about heading in a new direction. I'm starting a backpacking trip through Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia tomorrow. It is for 5 weeks. When my husband first proposed this I felt that 5 weeks was too long. I'll miss my cats, my fabrics, and my sewing machine. But...

  • Re: Welcome to the Studios Forum

    Hi, Actually, we do show some normal, cluttered studios! Juliana Coles' and Rayna Gillman's studios in the Fall 2008 issue are two good examples. In the Spring 2009 issue, Jennifer Maestra has stuff out all over the place and Lesley Riley shows how her fabric is stuffed in open wire baskets all...
