Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers! What’s new? I haven’t been making much, because I’ve been going to shows and traveling to Wash. D.C. for the big SAQA conference. It was fabulous and fun, but I’m itching to get back in the studio!
So….instead I bring you what other art quilters have been making.
If you can’t make it to ARTQUILTS Whimsy, I picked a few of my favs to share with you. I apologize that I didn’t get the artists’ names or titles. I think you will agree they are whimsical and fun. Enjoy this little album, if you click on each thumbnail, you will get a bigger image:

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: Schedule Appointment 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! CUSTOM COMMISSIONS 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!” About Roxane
