  • Copyright & Found Objects

    When using text, the artist needs to get permission to quote another in an art quilt. What about found objects? For example, food or clothing labels? What if I were to weave into my art quilt the wire/paper strips with "organic" or "joe's farm" printed on them? Or scanned a tomato...

  • 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

    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...

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

    Everone has self-doubts, that normal. My self-doubts only occasionly deal with the art in my quilts. Now that doesn't mean they are perfect, far from it. But nothing is perfect. My art quilts help me to stay sane, I have a need to create things. Some times it is cooking, sometimes it is an art quilt...

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

    Arlijohn, I think most everyone feels this way (at least I do). I tend to not keep my work and give it away for a couple of reasons: 1) I see flaws, and hope they wont be as glaring to the recipient, and 2) I'm ready to move on... I suggest if you are going to give your quilts away, take pictures...

  • Do you feel confident in your quilts artistic merits?

    I look and admire other peoples work daily. Wow, what a great idea! or How did they think of that? When it comes to my own work I am full of insecurities. Is it good enough? Did I express my idea well or not? Will anyone be interested in my designs or quilts? I often wonder if other people suffer these...
