My name is Patricia and I am a beginner Quilt Artist. I have made one crazy quilt so far and now I'm starting my second. My art background is canvas painting then I learned Tole painting then I taught myself watercolor painting. I have also learned flower arranging and I self taught myself to do some beading with seed beads. I also took a photography class but I have forgotton everything I learned. Colors are what turns me on. I'm into realizum and can never do anything abstract. I have no other artist to share my work with so I can get some good critizium. I've been trying to do thread painting with my sewing machine and I just can't do it or the free hand quilting. My first crazy quilt is done by hand except for the boarder. I'm in my 60's and on SS so my budget is scarce.
