This week’s post is a simple shameless plug for the Vintage View Quilt Show and for the Capital Quilters Guild here in Raleigh. There are many tireless volunteers putting on this amazing show, and they are hard at work getting it ready for YOU!
I will personally will be there with a display booth. So you can buy my art work, stop by and say hello, and watch me demo my free motion techniques. I will also be there to answer your questions in person about my Private Mastery Art Quilting Program.
I will be selling brand new art work, like my small Fragment Squares:
And Fabric ArtCards:
Or some of the new needlefelted pieces I recently made:
There will be a variety of things to see and buy for every pocket book. And I will also be showing my larger pieces too. Three of them will be on display as part of the show!
Here is the info for your calendars, and I hope to see you there!

The 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!
PRIVATE ART QUILTING MASTERY COACHING
I want you to make the most amazing, original art quilts that you can. That is why I am now accepting private students who are serious about their creative expression in the world of art quilting. Take advantage of my 15+ years as a textile artist, and speed up your learning curve.
To work with me privately, please set up your initial, no obligation, free Get Creative Call here:
You can find out more by clicking on the Testimonials and Private Coaching tabs to the right in the sidebar or at the menu at the top.
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!”
Roxane is a full time studio textile artist and teacher with two girls and 1 fat cat. She is a 2012 Niche Award Winner and exhibits her work all over the world. Her work is in several private collections and loves doing custom commissions. For more info go to http://roxanelessa.com.
