Yarn Bombed Trees are Delightful!

Check out the FABULOUS yarn bombed trees in downtown Lansing, (Michigan) before September 1st! Lansing Art Gallery encouraged beautiful, colorful and lively yarn bombing this summer with their PopUp Project! Peruse the artful trees on the 100 block of Washington Avenue---and go see the fantastic gallery exhibit while you are there too!

Courtney's detail work is stupendous!

I Like the Way She Thinks...

Thoughts about quilting from Gwen Marston...
Here are some concepts from nineteenth century quilts that we can still use effectively today:
  • simple pieced patterns 
  • random color placement and color substitution
  • no corner resolution on borders
  • tied quilts
  • edges finished by bringing the backing to the front and making binding
  • less precision

I've never understood what seems to be the over-preoccupation with precision in the quilt world. It seems to me that the making of art has very little to do with staying inside the lines.
