I grew up with a family of creative artists. And many of them quilt. My mother and aunts have made many. My attention span is not very long. Other than my colored pencil drawings, which takes many hours to do, I have never been interested in making a patterned piece quilt. I admire them and appreciate the time it takes to make them, but it isn't for me. That is until I went with my aunt to Pidgeon Forge last March and saw the most beautiful art quilt at the Quiltfest there.
That visit inspired the artist in me to read up on art quilts. I have spent many hours, purchased books, you tubed,Pintersted, you name it, I have done it! I have yet to try the free motion, but as soon as I finish all my pieces that I have started, I will practice it. Right now, I am creating my pieces.
i look forward to seeing all the quilting going on! I will now browse around some!
