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

Breaking Traditions Art Quilt

This is my quilt for the breaking traditions show. All the proceeds go to A Place To Bark animal rescue... My good friend Bernie Berlin...The name of my quilt is "As For Me and My House".... Joshua 24:15
The theme was "home"... In my home I like to try and put God first. And I have always wanted to do a stained glass type quilt. I used wonder under to fuse the colorful pieces which were all from one piece of hand dyed fabric. I did stippling in the cross and larger stippling on the hill. The rest of the quilt was quilted with lines coming out from the cross. After I quilted it I added a piece of purple tulle over the top. I did this to hold down the fused pieces since I didn't sew down each piece. Then I added a bit of quilting to hold the tulle in place. Added the binding and now my piece is almost done. I just have to sew the binding to the back of the quilt and it will be ready to send off to Lynn. And soon my piece from last years show will be home.. I did my cat Abner and dedicated it to my awesome vet.. Betsy Miller..
I'm glad I finally got a piece done to share on my blog.. seems like I haven't posted forever.. For more info on supporting this quilt show or to contribute to it go here..
