I have lived in VA most of my life and it is all that and more, hope you find it a place to call home. I prefer makeing art quilts ot others probably because I get so bored doing the same thing over and over. If I can help let me know!
I think it is a wonderful idea and art quilts are open to so many explorations in techniques, from fabric, thread, bead, dye, paper, tyvek, buttons, yarn, printmaking, and on & on. I love takign this and that and doing what I want knowing it is my creation.
Welcome, Barbara, Betty Stephens and Deb in VA. So good to meet all of you.
If you haven't jumped into the new Art Quilt group you can find it here: Art Quilt Group
Be sure to put in your suggestions for our first art quilt group challenge in the discussion forum. I would love to see what each of you come up with.
