first art quilt

Posted by Picasa I have finally figured out how to post pictures to my Blog. I live in the sad and slow DIAL UP WORLD so surfing the web or doing anything on line is a form of torture. However, thanks to PICASA, I am able to show my first "dipping of the toes" into the art quilt venue. This came together in less than 4 weeks. It was really exciting to "fly by the seat of my quilted pants" since, unlike traditional quilting, I didn't have any books or instructions or had never taken any classes other than the fabric painting class where I created the fabric. As I said in my previous post, once I completed the painting, it felt like "Florida". I was supposed to give this to my sister after the Jacksonville Quilt Show, but I reneged. It would be like giving away your first born. Who could do that??

Hi - your "first art quilt" is beautiful! I like the sublteness of the colors...and yes, it does evoke Florida (I live in Punta gorda)
I saw your blog address from quiltarts. I, too, am trying my hand at art quilts and I would like to show my first one on a blog but I can't figure out how to post a photo....looks like you did figure it out, maybe you could help me. patricia@captainkip.com
thanks, I'm new to all of this!
