Anita's quilts and quilting

A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.

I did this

This is one of the paintings I did in Hollis’ class.  Can you tell what it is?

How about now?

I was so focused on learning the process that I forgot to take photos as I worked.  The hand drawing is her’s.  The painting is mine using her drawing.  She had several we could choose to use.  Look at this class sample done by Hollis.  That’s why she is the teacher and I’m a student.

Loucon 2014 059While I sat in class waiting for things, I pulled out my sketchbook and played around.  I can’t seem to simply set still.  I feel the need to be doing something all the time.  At first I was making little sketches suitable for putting on customer quilts and then it dawned on me…. I don’t have customers anymore.

So I started looking at my own hand and deciding how I’ll go about doing the quilting on this hand quilt if I finish it someday.  The mod painting one will be easy, the hand, not so easy.

A really nice lady, named Elsbeth, from the group mailed me a book about drawing people.   I believe it’s going to be a great help for me.  Once I get started.  It seems I’ve done lots of other things the last few days instead of concentrating on the one thing I want most. I’ve been procrastinating by house cleaning or internet surfing or cooking.  Maybe it’s an artist block or something?  Anyway, today I’m spending time in my studio again.  Even if I only do a bit of cleaning it should help get me motivated.
