Once I finally decided how to quilt the New Zealand quilt, it didn’t take long. Deciding how to quilt it, though, took a bit of time. In this video, I discuss several of the ideas I had and how the ways I auditioned my ideas to finally decide on the quilting.
When I was in New Zealand, I was incredibly lucky to see two glaciers that terminate in a rain forest. Walking up to view these waning phenomena, and catching glimpses of the sun and the glaciers’ ice spires through the rain forest vegetation was incredibly moving. Int his video, I discuss the design of a quilt that captures the colors and feel of the experience. In my next video, I’ll talk about the quilting.
I grew up with highly artistic family members. My sisters were drawing realistic dogs and cats- I mean REALISTIC, dogs and cats- before kindergarten. Around the age of ten, I mastered cute rows of flowers. It worked for me, it was the early 70’s, Flower Power was in.
In high school, I managed an “A for effort” in art by making a train engine out of slabs of clay. It was engineered beautifully. It looked like it was painted by a second-grader.
Good thing I got perfect scores on every math test, my mother wouldn’t have had a thing to put in the scrapbook with my sisters’ works of art….
