  • Re: Forum Challenge - It's My Nature

    "Peachy Posy" is among many FIRSTS in my life recently! We had a stormy Montana spring and those rainy skies became the inspiration for this design which began first as a sketch while longingly gazing out the window. It represents many "firsts" in my life, one of which was a time...

  • Re: Opinions on online courses

    I have taken 5 classes at QuiltUniversity.com. It's terrific! They post new lessons every friday so you can begin working on your new homework that weekend. Most classes run from 3 to 6 weeks.

  • Re: Do you feel confident in your quilts artistic merits?

    I just finished my 1st solo piece. It was quite an ambitious project so I'm really pleased to have achieved it.

  • Re: Do you remember your first?

    The first fabric quilted piece I made was a sampler in a class using one of Alex Anderson's books. My teacher taught us how to choose colors of fabrics (basically using a color wheel which I had never done) and how important it is to use different values (which was also new to me). I didn't stick...

  • Who or what is your muse?

    Some people love their fur-faced animals, some are inspired by their children, others by nature, skyscrapers or even other art forms and artists. What's your muse? Do you just have one? How do you access it? How do you make it go to sleep at 4 am when you're ready for bed and it still wants to...
