What Are My Students Up To?

Hi Everyone!

My students have always inspired and amazed me.  But now that I am working with them privately, we are able to really delve deeply into their wants and needs as emerging art quilters.  The results have been amazing!  Scroll down and take a look:

Here is Cathy, with her son, proudly holding up a newly finished piece she designed and made about her son hiking in the woods.

Just look at the depth she achieved with value and placement!

And here are some 3-D fans she made for her dad:


Cathy has really taken my coaching and run with it!  I can’t wait to see what she does next…..

Then there’s my student in Illinois, Lynn.  We both set up our Ipads and  meet with each other on FaceTime to have our sessions. Lynn’s main focus has been learning the different ways to balance a composition successfully.  She has made huge strides and here are some of her  works in progress:

Last week’s post about Finding Your Voice got a lot of comments on Linked In in the Quilting Enthusiasts group which I belong to.  Lots of art quilters are trying to find their voice in the medium of quilting.  If you find yourself wondering about where you are in your journey of quilting, take a look at this video I made about the 5 Stages of an Art Quilter’s Development.  I posted it last week, but you may have missed it 🙂

Here’s the video, and please share with your quilting friends.  And don’t forget to tell me what stage you are in in the comments!

Did You Know?

That I am on Pinterest?  Did you know that there are many amazing art quilts and traditional quilts being pinned every day, just waiting for you to look at?  

Never before has so much inspiration been in one place.  It’s like having an art museum in your hands.  If you haven’t checked it out, there are many, many types of things being pinned.

 It’s super easy to get started.  You can take a look at my pins, which are organized on different “boards” HERE.  Once you are on that page, you can click on the Get Started Button to make your own page on Pinterest.  Then start pinning!  I can spend a lot of time on Pinterest, because it’s all visual.  And I have a feeling, you will too!   


And don’t forget, I make custom commissions too! Read what my client Glenda had to say about her custom commission experience:

“Normally, I would be anxious about commissioning someone to do a work of art such as this. However, I felt a connection to you when Leigh showed me your work. It resonated with me and when I met you, you seemed almost a personification of your work. I immediately felt comfortable with you and knew that what you would create would be stunning. And it is!”
