Fabric Art (Art Quilting)Comments (3)Hi Airycat: I like art quilts and am trying to learn more. I belong to an art quilt group through my guild and there are some very artsy gals in the group. So far I have done a small vine-type quilt (saw a picture of it in an old magazine and copied). It turned out well (which surprised the heck out of me). I have done a lake scene (someone on this site was giving lessons...Teresa NC 7 listed under landscape quilts. I did an underwater quilt which everyone in the group liked and I was pleased with. I took a class in thread painting and have to finish that project (mountains, trees, lake, flowers, etc.) I must have ADD also since I have a problem completing anything large. If you want to pick my brain for anything I might know, send me an e-mail. Lynn...See More
Does this art go well with the room? - picsComments (45)I know this sounds strange -- but my husband's old apt in NY had a ridiculously tall staircase upon entering, and I mean long and tall-about 2 floors or close. It had a glass window on the door at the bottom. anyway..... It was blank boring etc. One day I asked him what does he really like and would be a dream to put on the walls.... so while he was gone, I bled out my savings and bought movie posters and had them framed, they were 2 high and stair stepped up like the stairs. yes, it was an unusual entry, but he was overjoyed, everyone commented on it, it really looked good (his place was uber guy cave (black leather, big tv...) modern. but what I'm trying to say is try thinking of what you'd like more than anything-me I'd have animal photos of my pets lol, and the stair step approach and closer together (those 3 on your staircase look like miles apart to me) my friend in hawaii has a few colorful quilts up her staircase --looks great in the islands, just an idea........See More
Where does the artwork go?Comments (7)More info would be helpful. Pix if you have them though I agree it sounds like art above the towel bar would work. If the towel bar is too high it may not look right unless the art is wider than tall. Over the toilet is also a good place for art unless you have a hubby that leans against that wall at night with one hand holding himself from falling over. I know TMI, but I had to explain why it's not always a good place for art....See More
Does etched aluminum art go better w/Stainless Steel or Chrome furnituComments (2)It does not matter- art doesn’t match furniture. You could use a glass console, mahogany, or even brass and the art (as long as you like it) still goes. Pick the nicer of the two tables that work with your other furniture....See More
