The Small Art Quilt DVD

 Did you know I have an instructional DVD called The Small Art Quilt? It show three different quilts and how I created them, a torn collage, a painted pet portrait and cut felt design. There's also a gallery section of my quilts. It's quite entertaining...Why am I bringing this up? Because I'm giving one away! This will be my first ever blog give-away, so let's see what happens and maybe I'll give away more stuff. Here's what you need to do. Leave a comment, telling me about your art and what you love to do most. (paint, stitch, collage, computer design or...?) I'll figure out how to use the random generator and pick one person to receive the DVD. I'll blog the winner on Monday Feb 22.
On another note, I'm teaching an online class of paper and cloth collage techniques called "Kimono Collage." It starts March 1.

  2. Looks like a wonderful tutorial. I love sketching and art journaling. Mostly I use ink and watercolors, with a little collage thrown in. oh...and felt...I like to work with felt I've gleaned from the thrift shop clothes.

  3. Jane, I'd love to win a copy of your DVD. It looks very inspiring and I'm definitely looking for tools to help me learn fibre-arts. And I love cats too. Is that an Omen?

  5. Oh I love your work. I am mostly involved with quilting & love to do art quilts and those little postcards. That is a fun size to experiment with.

  6. Dear Jane; how can a person learn slow cloth when their hands have attention deficit? I'm thinking of handcuffing myself so I can finish beautiful art quilts like yours. Your work is fantastic, ergo, your dvd is fantastic! Kelli

  8. I have been a crafter since I was really young. I make Ceramics, Stained glass, warm glass, paint, make cards, sew for my grand daughters and make quilts for charities. I guess what started me crafting was as a child in elementary school, I would always have my dad buy me the Valentine book where you punched out and put together your cards...

  9. Love your work Jane, especially watching you with Pokey on her DVD's. I'm new to art quilting, but have been making ATCs and Postcards while learning new techniques.

  11. Thanks for hosting your giveaway! I don't have a favorite form of art--it kind of goes in seasons. I love to paint, sew by hand, machine stitch, crochet... probably my first loves are painting and sewing by hand. There are so many memories attached to these, generations of women in my family engaging in them, it's a delight. Right now just moved into a new space and finally am able to keep my sewing machine up! I'm looking forward to everything that affords! :-D

  12. At the moment, Jane, I'm having fun making the cloth and paper quilts you showed us in the january Art Quilt class! So far i've made three quilts and have nearly finished the stitching and embellishing on one of them.

    I have my picture ready for our next class, and now I'm thinking I may need to dig out the piece of silk that my mom gave me years ago and combine it with the pieces of kimono that I got from Spirit of the Cloth!

    You may just be too inspiring!

  13. Well that's awfully nice of you to do a giveaway - I'd like to join in! My art thang is beadwork on textiles, improvisational beading to be exact. At the moment I am exploring surfaces to bead on that I have never tried before such as resist dyed felt.

    Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh -- that looks like such fun! I'd love to win!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hmm. I think I'm going to need the DVD whether I win it or not!

    As far as what I like to do best - while I'm screen printing I'm happy - when I'm dreaming up new designs I'm happy - when I have paint I'm happy.

    Then again, I'm almost never unhappy when I'm in the studio.

  16. My thing is anything fiber related, art or traditional. I'd love to see your process in your DVD. Thanks for counting me in.

  17. Thank to Lyric I located your blog. I need this DVD. I've been challenged to make an art quilt. I'm a traditional quilter! So if I don't win it, I'll buy it!

  19. Sweet lady Jane, choosing what I like best is really hard, because I love one while I am doing it until I start the next thing. First might be painting... or collage or maybe stitching, oh but then there is pottery, oh how I love that and cooking does that count?...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi Jane,
    How fun for all of us who read your blog to enter for this DVD. I have always enjoyed your appearances on Quilting Arts TV, so maybe I will be lucky and win this!

    I love doing mixed media projects, particularly collage pieces. Having recently discovered Kelli Perkins new book, I'm looking forward to experimenting with making paper cloth in all those yummy colors. I started out with traditional quilting and one thing just seems to lead to another! Now if I only had more time to play with all of the materials and techniques. . . but isn't that always the story, never enough time!

    Thank you for allowing all of us an opportunity to win instructions from you.

  24. Hi Jane

    Never would have picked painting as my favorite technique before taking your classes but it is by far my favorite. Justine

  25. I love painting and collage mixed together but have recently started combining fabric in the mix too. I have to keep it fresh and exciting!

  27. Hi Jane!
    Well, what I love the very most in life is to add dye to silk! That's it!!! I've taken several of your classes and enjoyed them, but I'm still having mixed feelings (and worst yet) mixed results in the collage area. ARGH!!! So, I'm still trying to find my way in this world, but I think it is leading me towards dyeing silk and then constructing garments...........not art quilts in my future???? Who knows!

    I hope I WIN, as I'm an ardent fan, as you well know!!!!

  28. Jane, I'd love my own copy of your new DVD ... MY FAVORITE art medium would have to be - getting messy! :-) seriously, I adore collage work; I very much enjoyed the kimono I worked on last year in your class, using the paste papers Al taught us how to make for the "mosaic" bits. I love to stitch; and I recently re-discovered my love for a good sewing machine! -- Davi

  29. Oh boy. Put my name in the hat, Jane. Yay. I'll post it up on my blog.

  30. How exciting about your new DVD! I keep nature journals mostly in watercolor and ink or pencil and also I weave tapestries and purses. Hope I win...your work is wonderful!

  31. Hi Jane, I have taken a couple of your online classes and find them quite inspiring. My first love is papier mache and for the last year or so I have been incorporating various layered collage techniques into (and onto)my pieces with great results. Wendy

  34. Wow. You pose a difficult question. I suppose I could say I love to do painting of backgrounds the most. I enjoy doing backgrounds on paper and canvas fabric. I also do many of the other things you mentioned but right now that is my fave.
    Thank you for doing the give away. Your class looks very interesting also.
    Angels be with you.

  36. It's such a privilege to say on your blog what I do in my little bubble!

    I doodle mainly and have been doing 'Thing a Day' this month and have experimented doing some stitching with felt.
    There is a community quilt project in York at the moment and people are being asked to contribute their own 15" x 15" square. This is all new to me so I'm really looking forward to it!
    I love your blog and it offers so much inspiration :-)

  45. My "art" is whatever inspires me from reading all my "besties" blogs:) Right now I'm deconstructing screen printing inspired by Melly Testa via Kerr Grabowski.

    It's how I r0ll - OCD overwhelmed by ADD!

  48. Hi Jane! Thanks for commenting on the robots! I know you love working with kids, I could have used some of your classroom expertise- :) Thought I'd take advantage of your giveaway- I'd love one of your dvd's! My fave is the wire and fabric combo but mini art quilts are a close second!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Jane,
    You don't know it, but you're my secret mentor for watercolor journaling. I love your style, and if I ever get half as good as you, I'll be happy! (The sketching part is hardest for me.) Besides that, I'm also an art quilter and I love surface design (and teach both locally), machine needlefelting, silk painting, bookmaking... www.fiberexplorations.blogspot.com

  52. Hi Jane,
    Have only just made contact with you via Flickr.com/photos/suzyqu/.
    Like you I started a number of years ago with crazy quilting using mainly the rich vibrant fabrics and have very recently ventured into collage work using more silktops, mohair, threads etc. and would love any ideas to help me develop any potential I may have in this direction. So sweet of you to offer your DVD giveaway. Keep finding that creativity within!
