På min vägg from Veriquilt

Äntligen har jag fått upp farten och arbetat med min temakvilt i Art Quilt-cirkeln. Det är bestämt att alla i gruppen före nästa sommar skall göra tre kviltar var på valfritt tema. Jag har valt temat "Tillsammans" och det har jag ångrat flera gånger. När jag valde tänkte jag att det blir perfekt till mina screentryck men det var en mödosam väg. Jag funderade på alternativen att hoppa av eller att byta tema till något med inspiration av Sonia Delaunay och jag gjorde en första mall men det blev inte lyckat. Det är svårt att göra något inspirerad av en ...

At the Border from Veriquilt

Jag har fått veta att min art quilt "At the Border" har blivit antagen till SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) Europe and Middle East Exhibition - Wild Horizons VII som, om inte Covid19 innebär ändrad planering, skall turnera under två år med start i Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines i september, jag är jättestolt!

At the Border, detalj
Kvilten är 70 x 76 cm och uppmanar oss att aldrig glömma tragedin med stängda gränser och separerade familjer. Den är utförd i Breakdown printing, de mörka partierna är överfärgade och sedan har jag gjort screentryck med Discharge Paste. Tryck på det ljusa tyget är med akrylfärg ...

No title from Veriquilt

"No title"
 Jag blev naturligtvis mycket glad och stolt när jag fick veta att min "No title" fanns med bland de 24 verk som valts ut av juryn att ingå i SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) första virtuella utställning No Limits. Det var 186 inskickade bidrag och juryn har endast haft fotografier att gå efter så jag tar det som lite extra beröm att jag lyckats med fotograferingen. Tavlan mäter 30 x 30 cm och är monterad på canvas. Bakgrunden är monoprint med akryl på Gelliplate och sedan är porträttet inkjettryck på silkefiber och ett tunt linnetyg. Maskinkviltat och lite ...

Working on SAQA Auction Quilt from From Edge 2 Edge

I have been working on some smaller pieces lately and decided to make my SAQA auction quilt. I still have a little bit of work I want to do to this but for the most part I am happy with the result. I still have to block it, add a sleeve and a label.

I am thinking I might do just a touch more color work on it to add a bit more contrast in both the background areas and the foreground. I will be darkening some background so the hills are a little more defined. I will consider adding ...

Opera House for SAQA Benefit Auction from Life as a Quilter -- Julia Graber

My donation for the annual SAQA Benefit Auction is complete.
Opera House - 12"X12"

The Sydney Opera House is considered to be one of the most distinctive buildings of the 20th century. It's unique roof structure is "a series of gleaming white sail-shaped shells."

I started by finding a copyright free image in Unsplash
and used a photo app to edit the picture ...

... and printed it onto fabric that I had ironed to freezer paper and then sent through my home inkjet printer

I quilted my piece on my domestic Bernina  using a walking foot to +/-1/8 ...

Arizona Understated - SAQA: Part Two from From Edge 2 Edge

I decided that I wasn't satisfied with my first attempt at creating a piece for the SAQA Arizona Understated exhibit. So I started over.

You might be interested in my design process. This post is about the steps I go through to create most of my work and this one in particular. If I am creating a piece for an exhibit I verify all criteria for the work. Size limitations and any other requirements. I make notes and may create a 3 x 5 card or notebook entry with all relevant information.

I create a preliminary thumbnail sketches of ...

Arizona Understated - SAQA from From Edge 2 Edge

I have started working on a piece for a trunk show for SAQA. Here are the details of the exhibit. I am still deciding if I am going to do a representational piece or more abstract. I decided to start with the realistic and then play with the abstract to see which I like best. It is always fun to work in a series as so many ideas  are bouncing around. Working in a series allows me to experiment and play without feeling like I have to make the 'correct' choice on the first piece. I never know where an ...

Papir og tekstil from Iinas Sewing Machine Poetry


Jeg har mange viktige steder for art quilt-inspirasjon. Blant dem er en Facebook-gruppe som enkelt og greit heter "Art Quilts". Og den aller viktigste er den internasjonale organisasjonen for art quiltere, SAQA.
Hvorfor jeg nevner dette nå? Rett og slett fordi disse kildene er den direkte årsaken til at jeg satte tidligere i høst i gang med å teste ut bruk av papir fra gamle bøker i tekstilkunsten min.
Jeg er slett ikke den første til å gjøre dette, men som jeg oftest gjør, fant jeg også denne gangen ut av ting på egen hånd.
Og gjorde det kanskje litt ...

North Star Show n Tell - The Narwhale from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


AH -- I'm back. I had a great night's sleep even though I had a wee nap around dinner time. Let's hope that I'm back in my time zone.

I thought I had better get some of those edited pictures up for you to have a peek at.

I'm going to start with the homework from the North Star quilt by Elizabeth Hartman.

This is one of our ongoing classes at The Hobby Horse. There are nine blocks in total and the last block will be assigned at the next class at the end of this ...
