Jane Sassaman Quilt…….assignment to self

Sassaman1

I went to our public library the other day and I got so excited when I came upon this book….. Masters Art Quilts. Oh My! Oh, My!! Talk about eye-candy, talk about talent. The above piece is just part of the whole quilt created by Quilter Jane Sassaman. Not only would I love to be able to quilt such a masterpiece, I totally fell in love with her design….her art, here. Below, is the whole entire quilt. The yellow box is the small portion that the above picture shows.

So, needing something to color in using markers (because that’s my latest obsession), I used her quilt as my guide. I put my own little spin on it in many areas. This was a lot of fun.

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
