I've been looking for.... and thinking about... small gift ideas for Christmas. I have so many 'big' ideas but never start soon enough to get them made for Christmas! So over the next few weeks, I'm going to share some ideas for easy and reasonably quick gifts.

My Mystery Quilt Classes are More than a Mystery

Have you ever taken an online quilting mystery workshop? They sure can be a lot of fun as you work your way through them. I've written a couple of these and I have to say, neither is only about the mystery. Both workshops include a lot of learning as well. My most recent mystery is based on art quilting definitely written for those quilters who would like to dabble in art quilts but unsure where to start or art quilters who just want a bit of fun in designing and creating.

Bedazzled and bamboozled by color? Consider a class! Once you know the basics of color theory, color choices become so much easier...in any medium.

Can You Pick the Vanishing Point?

Perspective can be an important element of art quilting depending on your style of quilting and what you want to portray. If your work is abstract, perspective may or may not be important to a particular piece.

This week I'm going to be winding up with our spring challenge, but it isn't just going to be about binding it off. I'm going to add a whole new element. It is up to you as to whether you do too. We've been working with warm colors thus far, so let's throw in some cool colors and see how it all works out.

For my challenge, I decided to go with the page size using the light background I had auditioned my ideas on. I love this fabric - it creates ideas in itself!

September's Flower

Posted by on 17 September 2019 | 0 Comments

If you're a regular reader, then you know that for the past couple of months I've been listing Flowers of the Month. It's almost the end of September so figured I'd better get on to that pretty promptly. There are two flowers for September so depending on where you are in the world it may be aster or it may be morning glory. Both flowers I have made as blocks for my BOW flower collection.

So last week I set you a task of collecting 'warm' materials to make your challenge project as well as a neutral for the background which could be pieced together if you wanted. (Review last week's post). You also needed to come up with a plan or two of ideas for what you wanted to create.
