Living This Creative Life

I have two favorite quotes. The first one is by Emile Zola, "If you asked me what I came into this world to do, I would tell you that I came to live out loud". I don't know who the second one is by, but it goes like this, "If you're not living on the edge then you might as well jump". Both of these sentiments sum up my personal philosophy of this experience we call life on earth. Enjoy!

More New Pieces in my Sculptural Quilt Series

Here are two more pieces in the sculptural quilt series that I am currently working on. They are rather small, just 12" x 15" or so. I am so enjoying creating this work.

Working with paint is teaching me so much about color and I love, love, love having the opportunity to mix together my two favorite things; painting on fabric and machine quilting.

These days I'm really feeling like a lucky girl. I've hit my stride, doing what I've been wanting to do for such a long time. Being a studio artist, getting national teaching gigs (I'll teaching at Road to California next year) and writing books! Life can be very good!

Till tomorrow,

Heather, these are STUNNING! I love how you make all of the different elements so cohesive. The colours are great, and the machine quilting is to die for! I can't wait to see all of these wonderful pieces in person.
