Artist's Toolbox

I'm not sure if it is the time of year or what but lately I have been into taking classes and learning.  I've been wanting to learn more about art quilts so found another class at Quilt University called Artist's Toolbox.  This one is taught by Lyric Kincaid who has been featured in Quilting Arts magazine.  When going through the supply list for this class, I noticed that an optional supply is her book, Art + Quilt: Design Principles and Creativity Exercises.

I decided to order the book as I think it will make the class even more interesting.  When it comes to quilting, I am a quilter who has to have a pattern.  I don't consider myself a 'creative' person and definitely not an artist.  Even so, I am hoping that this class will help me become more creative and at the very least help me to think outside the box!

I really enjoyed the last class I took at Quilt University and over the weekend finished my 2 fabric applique class project:

My next step is to layer and quilt.  I plan to do echo quilting which is easy and enjoyable : )

Until next time . . .


  1. I'll be curious to know how you like the book. Your 2 color applique turned out great!

    1. Thanks for you kind comments. The 2 fabric applique is a lot easier than I thought it would be and I had a lot of fun stitching it. I'll keep you posted on the art class and the book.
