    Hey all you lurkers! It is time for you to share something. How about a promise to post something next month?
    Anything that catches your eye, does not have to be a complete piece. Suzy, give us our next theme, and we can brainstorm.

    I wish I had time to join all of you (it looks like so much fun!) but happily too much going on right now. I thought you might enjoy this little video of my art quilts (behind the photographs) and maybe be inspired! Ann http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5RL0RWo_qs

    very nice, ann! i've just watched several tutorials on printing on fabric. a start of something new for the new year!

    i have an idea for february. remember the movie, "Groundhog Day"? how about we take a design factor and repeat it, but add a slight twist each time. bill murray would be so proud to know he inspired us!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    February Challenge

    February Challenge

    This month we have had 2 suggestions and I adored them both. So you are going to get a bonus 2 challenges this as both are really fit for February.

    Normally we have a more thematic challenge like January's 'Start Something New' but this month we will have theme and also Nancia suggested a technical challenge as well.

    Technical Challenge Part 1

    "I have an idea for the February Challenge. Remember the movie, "Groundhog Day"? (That was where an obnoxious TV weatherman,Bill Murray, had to relive the same day over and over until he learned how to be more caring.)

    But for us.........well how about we take a design factor and repeat it, but add a slight twist each time?"
    Now no need to get intimidated by this idea. It could be as simple as taking a color; say, light yellow and in five steps going through to gold in your piece. Or perhaps the same block with changes in size or orientation? Playing with stamps on one like this is fun. Applique something in 5 different ways? Any part of your design could be modified with 5 twists. You can draw or plan them, or let them happen --And what wonders may appear!!!!

    February Art Challenge Theme Show the Love

    All of our lives contain tragedies both personal and public. But then look at our human responses………they are overwhelmingly filled with projects to help and comfort one another. So this month’s challenge is to somehow portray this.

    The touch of hands between someone ill who needs human contact, the offering of food to the homeless, kissing your child goodnight, writing checks for worthy causes, making quilts for those hurting.

    How do show love and how could you portray it in a quilt? We are not making quilts to give as Valentine’s gifts but showing an expression or idea of love somehow within the work itself.
    But then of course you need to give it away…..


    So with these two ideas you should find some great inspiration. Can't wait to see your ideas and projects.
    On your mark,set,go!
