    Oh, I need more challenges in my life. Independence day was yesterday. My last daughter graduated from high school. But is it independence day for me or her or both. I'm anxious to see what I can come up with. The wheels are already spinning. I just started trying to learn how to do fused quilts with wonder under. But I don't get how you don't have to stitch around the entire snippit of fabric. I guess I'll learn as I experiment with this.

    I love the trees, bushes and stream just the way they are. I can see why you are struggling.. the trees are right behind the bushes up front and then this background just appears....

    I cant figure out what the green is in the background, hill? mountain? that throws me off.

    The tall trees are right in front of it. Id say shorten the mountain considerably so it looks like it is way in the distance and add some horizon, maybe a meadow (hill and dale) between it and the tree.

    Im thinking more like in this photo http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...ectedIndex=111

    Look at just the right half of this picture, then substitute your stream and bushes for the grass and fence in the front of it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Is this still going on monthly? Any one still creating - I would like to try fabric painting but haven't gotten the nerve up to try it or enough knowledge about where to start.

    I think it would be fun to see this thread revived.

    Me too. Have not done any quilting since all my quilts were stolen. Just took the heart right out of me.

    I did a monthly art quilt a while ago but participation was disappointing. The monthly mini quilt is pretty open to all ideas.
    I do that swap, post cards and mug rugs. A good way to try new ideas! Dotty

    Challenges

    Our Art Quilters Group locally has decided on a monthly challenge. This month was an art quilt made entirely with items bought in a hardware store. It was amazing to see the different quilts brought in for show and tell. One of the ladies made this one.
