A Natural World Winner

It feels very odd to give away the Natural World. I mean, doesn’t it belong to all of us?

Thank you to Lark Crafts for donating this book to our lucky winner…..Edith. It appears Edith lives in the lovely country of Switzerland. Congratulations Edith, may your world remain natural forever!

Free on Friday: The Natural World

Coleen’s Calling Birds #13 (detail) by Laura Wasilowski

There are certain benefits in belonging to a local art group. As a member of the FAC (Fiber Artists Coalition) I get to participate in exhibits in museums around the country. Currently the FAC has a traveling exhibit called Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird. It’s based on a poem of the same name by Wallace Stevens.

Art Quilt Portfolio:The Natural World by Martha Sielman

If you have missed seeing our exhibit in person, there is another option. Our FAC group exhibit was honored to be published in Martha Sielman’s new book, Art Quilt Portfolio: The Natural World. And today you could win a copy of the book!

The generous people at Lark Crafts have donated a book as a give away. Just leave a comment on the Artfabrik blog today and you may be the lucky winner!

A Whole Lot of Pattern Going On

Zaragosa, Spain.

One of the perks of being a traveling quilt teacher is visiting exotic places. And I’m not talking exotic places like Elgin Illinois. I mean exotic places like Zaragosa, Spain.
Zaragosa has been the cross roads of so many cultures though out history. And each culture made sure to leave its mark. Here’s a good example of patterned brick work found in Zaragosa that stops many a quilter in her tracks.

Apple Trio

Patterning of the surface is a favorite pass time of mine. Pattern, whether made with fabric or thread or bricks, evokes a sense of rhythm to art work. And, like a brick layer, you gotta have rhythm.
