Happy Valentine’s Day…
Not a big holiday for me, but I am on Mid-winter break as well so celebrating with some art time, finally!
This is the first lesson from a joggles class I am taking.
Art Quilt Explorations with Jane LaFazio
My friend Diane was posting her work from the class and I was so impressed I decided to take the class too. This will be my first time taking an online class from Joggles, so I plan to post a lot of comments and progress throughout. I am currently waiting for my forum account to be approved so I can post there.
I decided instead of a traditional grass and dirt colored landscape, that I wanted to do a sunset style color theme. Mostly because I wanted to use purple! So after grabbing a bunch of fabrics from my stash, I went on flickr to look for some purple sunset pictures for inspiration.
Here are a few that I found:
Then I went back to my ironed pile to place them in a fashion that looked good to me. Next I did some satin stitching and fancy styles to hold the layers together. Now I am going to go add trim and beads and embroidery floss.
I have several other projects on board for this 5 day ‘weekend’ mostly for EBSQ shows. So expect to see a lot from me in the coming days.
I still need to get a February page started for the beaded journal project. I am thinking of making a duplicate of this but in my alter shape… we shall see!
