An Artist's Quest

From iPad to Quilt

Cluck, Cluck, Cocka-doddle-doo• 24″x 35″

Well I’m proud to share more details about my Quilting Arts Magazine article.  This month’s issue (Oct/Nov) has an article I wrote about turning iPad drawings into art quilts.  I made several quilts especially for the magazine; the one above is “Cluck, Cluck, Cock-a-doddle do.” It is made up of five images drawn on my iPad and printed on my home printer.  The one below is a redo of a quilt I did back in February.  This time I uploaded the images to Spoonflower.com and they printed the fabric, with bright, vibrant results.  For you Quilting Arts mag subscribers you already have your copy but if your not a subscriber the Magazine should be out in bookstores now or you can order online at Quilting Daily.  Here is a link to an online interview with Quilting Arts Editor Vivika DeNegre about changes to the iPad app I used to the article.  Ok two more links for your viewing pleasure.  Here is a link to some online extras that aren’t in the magazine and a video of an iPad drawing in process.  I know this post was mostly a big brag about my article but I’m so excited about how great it looks I want you to see it too.  I’m thinking about my next article submission that involves appliqué and stenciling I’ve got images of chairs, cow, and cups in mind (not all together) so I’ll keep you posted on that, I’ve just got to get some studio time to make it happen!  Oh for more hours in the day!

PS.  If you sign up to be a member of Spoonflower you can order the bird fabric and others at my “Shop” under lisapalooza.  Also I’ll have these art quilts up for sale on my website soon!
