First, the HeartStrings stuff. I quilted, bound, and labeled this donated top yesterday. Since Mereth's pantograph Feather Me was still on the table I used that one - it quilts up SO pretty.
Tomorrow I'll be traveling south to attend the HeartStrings MN area sew-in. We'll be working on our October Project Pink. If you'd like to join us in spirit and make some blocks to send in click here for the guidelines and mailing address.
I always label my quilting as scrappy and traditional versus *art* quilting like Deb's so I know I'm leaving her an opening here ....
I admit it, the postcards are fun so the first thing I start doing when I become interested in a subject is to look for books to inspire and instruct me. I showed the first book I bought in a previous post but on Wednesday I found two books on art quilts that I hope will inspire future postcards. I haven't completely read through both books but the parts I've read are wonderful and the quilts and photos very inspiring.
Art Quilt Workbook by Jane Davila & Elin Waterson
The Uncommon Quilter by Jeanne Williamson
I'm toying with the idea of doing a series of small quilts (postcards) similar to what Williamson describes in her book. She did one quilt a week for seven years....I'm not committing to any time frame but I like the idea.
