Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!
I’m hosting a contest to win a spot in my new online class, DESIGN YOUR DREAM ART QUILT.
Here’s all you have to do: send me a picture privately to firstname.lastname@example.org of anything that you are making right now. Maybe it’s a gift for someone in your family, or a baby quilt for a new baby in your world. Here’s my contribution:
This piece reminds me of a nebula in space- so I’m going to call it Where the Stars Are Born. I used a piece of my hand dyed silk and needle felted some wool and silk roving into it (broke 2 needles), ack! Then I began free motion quilting with my large plastic round foot attachment. This kind of foot works the best because there is nothing to snag the fibers.
Now it’s your turn!
Make it small, so you can do it quickly, then send me the picture so we can all see! It could be a special ornament, or a small art quilt, anything you feel inspired to make. Let’s inspire each other!! Send it to email@example.com.
Remember, one lucky, randomly drawn person who sends me a picture of something they made as a result of this challenge will get free entry into my new online class starting in January 2016. This is a $397 value and the name of the class is Design Your Dream Art Quilt!! I will do the drawing on Dec. 23rd.
WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?
This class is for you if:
- you want to make beautiful art quilts, but you don’t know where to begin
- you talk yourself out of trying, because you don’t think you’re “artistic”
- you want the support of a group
- you think to yourself, I’ll do this someday, when I’m ready (that day never comes)
- you want help with composition, color, design, while you are working on a piece you’ve always wanted to make
If you know you could benefit from a small online class like this, please go to: DESIGN YOUR DREAM ART QUILT to register. (You can still enter the challenge and if you win, you will get your tuition refunded 😆
That’s it! Now go to your work room and make something!
The Needle Felting Flower video IS ready. So if you haven’t seen it and want to get your free pattern- just email me and I’ll send it your way. See below.
