After a long break from the Studio at the end of the year, with the busyness of celebrating several holidays, birthdays, and family events, I finally find myself back in the studio on a cold, snowy winter’s day….but feeling cozy inside and ready to work! 🙂
Ready to create Art & do Business for a New Year, 2019!…
I thought you might like to see the process of preparing to finish a design!
“Field at Toledo” is ready for a backing, layering the 3 layers~~top, batting, and backing, and pinning together the layers before the thread-painting and free-motion quilt stitching begins!
Even though we had the threat of **Snowflakes** last week, November is still an Autumn month!! We still have orange, rust red, yellow, and brown leaves falling as the north winds howl through the trees!
*First Colors of Autumn #2 (2009) is Available in theArt Gallery~~~Add Fall color to your walls by adding it to your Art Collection! *
A couple of years ago I began “playing around” with the shape of a typical Christmas ornament…experimenting to just see how I might incorporate it into a design. ? After settling on a shape, I used it in unique ways in designing a series of art quilts…each one very different, but all using the ornament shape.
The results (so far) include 3 small art quilts, which all have a Winter holidays theme~~
Santa’s Night-time Trek~
And “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow“~ A current project that I am now finishing.the Studio!
Some of you have seen these photos on Instagram & Facebook. And, when I asked whether I should use Red thread or Blue, the Overwhelming answer was Blue!!
So…..Blue it will be! 🙂
In the Studio this week, I am completing this art quilt and then plan to photograph it. The 3 Art Quilts in this series, Winter Holidays, will also be offered as a set of Art Cards in time for your Holiday Season! So stay tuned… 🙂
