Art Quilt Tutorial from Jamie Fingal

Jamie Fingal posted a tutorial on how she made a wee art quilt, on her blog, Twisted Sister.

Jamie Fingal's wee art quilt

I love her use of color, especially the unexpected polka-dots and measuring tapes.

Domestic charm such as this holds delight for me, different from but just as valid, I think, as wild contemporary installations.

I love to see the familiar recast, resized. I love the invitation to stop and rest in the visual. This quilt reminds me of the earnestness with which kids draw. I'm back in kindergarten, with that best of gifts: time and a box of crayons.
