About Me

My photo
I was 53 in June. I feel like I'm 30. I live in Cold Cold Wisconsin. But, I love it here.. I found fabric and quilting about 8 years ago.. I fell in love with it.. I also enjoy paper art.. I'm not sure how I kept my sanity before I started doing art. I found rubber stamps about 10 years ago and have gone on to anything and everything.. I have been blessed with creative talents and love to express myself in art. I have 2 children .. one girl who is 15 and a boy who is 17. My husband and I love to hunt,canoe and just enjoy the outdoors together.. We all love the outdoors and go up to northern Wisconsin as often as possible. I'm a 14 year breast cancer survivor.. you can view more of my art at http://laurakrasinskiquilts.blogspot.com www.picturetrail.com/barngirl or my teaching, lecture and vending schedule here http://laurakrasinskisartontherun.blogspot.com

My Batik Quilt



My sister and I belong to a Batik club at Patched Works in Elm Grove. We have been anticipating making this quilt. So since I am off of work this week she came over on Monday and we worked on them. You can see hers on her blog.
http://cheryls-chatelaine.blogspot.com/ They are similar but, we both used different fabrics for the piano key border.
All I have to do yet is put the top and the sides on. I think I will have this quilt professionally quilted with a long arm. I love quilting art quilts but, bed quilts to me are a pain. THis is a twin size quilt... I can't wait to snuggle up under it...
