I take my hat off for love

HeArt Quilt #1 (copyright Hanna Andersson) I wake up in the middle of the night to sketch art quilts into my sketchbook. Ideas just pop up and I can’t stop them… I can absolutely not go to sleep with all of these ideas in my head. I need to sleep and that’s when I relax my brain. I close my eyes and try to fall into coma. Fifty minutes later I give up.

I turn on the light and reach for my sketchbook…

I draw a square in the middle of the page and start sketching. It’s fabric ideas. I end up with almost 10 different quilt ideas, prompted by material I know I already have.

This is how a project can start. With a big mess of materials that doesn’t look like they will ever come together. Then it evolves from there.

Maybe into something like this:

A small art quilt, only 12 x 13 centimeter. Not counting the tail… A heArt Project married to the art quilt form. And yes, true love. I take off my hat for love.

  4. Art quilts are one of those things that I LOVE to look at…yours is no exception to the rule! But whenever I sit down to make one…..the magic doesn’t happen. Yours are amazing!

  5. I LOVE this art quilt!! I have so much fabric stashed away, but when I try to do something like this, it doesn’t quite “work” for me… you definitely have a gift!!

  6. I LOVE your art quilt! I have a huge stash of fabric, and have tried to do things like this, but they never quite “work” out for me… you definitely have a gift for it!!

  7. I’m getting this sinking feeling you are going to succeed in influencing me to attempt hand-sewn miniature art quilting now. IT’S FREAKING COOL. Love it! :-)))
