I’m excited that another one of my little landscape quilts is on the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative’s auction block, starting October 1. As usual, there are many wonderful quilts up for auction and for sale on the AAQI website.
If this piece looks familiar, that’s because it is a smaller version of my other work, “Moonglow”.
I’m very excited that some of my artwork will be on display alongside my friend Sue Atlas’ art quilts during the month of October in The Frame Maker showroom gallery. I hope you’ll let me know if you get a chance to stop in and view the exhibit.
Location – 3102 Reynard Way, San Diego, CA 92103 Hours – Weekdays 9am to 5:30pm and Saturdays 10am to 4pm.
I set recent purchases out on my table along with a piece of fabric I had just painted and discovered I’m going through a green (Citron, to be exact) phase. Do you ever find yourselves working in color phases? Do you think it is good to be in a color phase or is it more of a rut that is difficult to get out of?
The fabric featured in this new video will be donated to the San Diego Quilt Show auction to benefit their 2012 charity – Girl Scouts San Diego. SDQS begins this Wednesday evening with a preview event and then runs Thursday, September 13 – Saturday, September 15th. Besides the piece from the video I’ll be donating two more – and as you can see they are purple!
I posted some time ago that I had been having fun with Gelli Arts gel printing plate. Well, I finally got around to adding another layer to some of the printed pieces. I’m not sure where they’ll go from here but I’m happy so far. I used painted Lutradur, home made foam stamps, a batik style paint technique, real ivy leaves as stamps and as resist on the gel plate. I hope you’ll let me know if this helps get your creative juices flowing!
Working with fabric or fiber most of her life Ann continues to explore the possibilities. Ann’s art quilts have been published and have traveled Internationally. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows. Ann has presented lectures/talks and trunk shows, has taught and on occasion still teaches live classes. She enjoys making videos lessons and demos for her YouTube channel in hopes of encouraging others to give quilting, fiber art, and mixed media a try. Ann admires knitting and crochet, and though she can’t knit and can only crochet a chain stitch, she’s discovered other ways to use yarn!
