Run Jump Fly
This is my wish for all our creative endeavours for 2013! In fact, I think we are all “up and running” already, so I hope we will be able to make that leap so that our art will really start to fly!
I have been taking an on-line class with Alisa Burke to help me become freer and less contained in my designing – on-line courses are becoming quite my thing, being a little isolated down here – and my last Voyage quilt for 2012 reflects this. I had a lot of fun placing pieces of some of my favourite fabrics and hand painted the words which were appliquéd with free zigzag stitching. For some of the background quilting I echoed the design on the fabric or drew and doodled happily with the machine, all in black thread.
Having really enjoyed our first Voyage year, I am looking forward to an exciting 2013 for us all.
