Rogue, That was a very nice read.

lollol! i am done work for the day...a small short list of accomplishment on a day that is often a "dead" day for me. so i enter the evening hours a happy camper. and will wander off across the valley tomorrow a.m. to quilt and giggle guilt free for the day. i will look here and in mag. '97 is, i think, one of the years i have a full set for.

i bet you are having a great time with teaching your smart 7 yo student! my oldest brother was my inspiration for learning embroidery. he did such beautiful work. our great aunt taught us both. he was about eight i was about five. it was just before i went to live w grmother who started me with my love of fabric. i & friend started teaching my son to do patchwork when he was about nine, at his request after sitting and watching us. my future graphic artist had a wonderful eye for color...then had me teach him basic embroidery stitches so that he could embroider quilt patches on his planned pillow top the way he had seen me do. he doesn't do needle work anymore....his face became glued to a computer screen a couple of years later. and there it remains..but writing code instead of wonderful alien and robotic animations. i am hoping his oldest child will want to learn one day also. she is, according to my dil, already closely examining quilts i had made before she was born. discussing the levels of difficulty and examining the items i am making for she and her little sister. children make, i think, the most womderful pupils for learning needlearts. no preconcieved ideas...just see, admire & want to learn to do.

Had to take a sewing lesson break. I'm teaching a seven year old... He is smart and it is fun!

The landscape was in Miniature Quilts 1997 #30 Titled "Distant Clearing." It was before I painted my own fabric. I may have posted it here when I first came on.

I total understand your getting sidetracked comment. If it wasn't my business and if there weren't deadlines I hate to think the number of UFO's I'd have! Speaking of that - I'm off to work.

i have most of the issues. do you remember which year/issue? i had a project last winter. sit w kitties and tea and go thru issues looking for ideas for mew project. but, as happens. sidetracked and didn't finish even one of current WIP's. really don't hace any UFO's because of my not wanting to start new w/o finish current. quilting or yard or whatever..that's just how i am.

and yes, i think i do remember stamped cat quilt. there was a flower one too, that i liked a lot. i even toyed w idea of using stamped quilt motifs as ideas for mini applique endeavor. but didn't.
yet :))

My very first landscape was published in Miniature Quilt Mag. Maybe someone will bring a mag like that back some day. Miniatures...a project I could make by hand and likely still finish in my lifetime!

You may remember my little cat quilt(?) It was stamped. I would love to see anything you might venture to try!

"just go" my thoughts exactly. have seen minis featured in the now defunct mag "miniature " quilting". had thought that if i decide to try stamped quilting that would be the way to go- for me. combine my love of miniature quilting w desire to try old now new technique of stamped designs.

When they say "What goes around, comes around" I guess they are often right. This is for a class I will be teaching in 2015 (maybe sooner). It is really simple and fun to make the background print and stencil. I can't give more away yet!

Apparently stenciling was done long, long ago and not for home decor as we know it. The "open designs", as you called them, are wonderful to quilt around - no thinking - just GO!

so elegant. i was looking in a mag number of years ago, dismayed at stenciled quilt pattern being offered. i am a traditionalist, been slow to enjoy and love the new ideas and forms quilt making has gone in recent years. then in one of my volumes of antique quilts and techniques ...stenciled quilts. !! they were a favorite form of quiltmaking in the late 1800's. imagine my surprise. my chagrin! lol and the few pictured in the book were beautiful. solid colors, open designs like yours..colors favored in that era.
