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

Quilt Expo

Finally I am getting a chance to post on Quilt Expo. I believe there were more quilts there this year than last. The show leans more toward traditional quilts than art quilts. I love to see them all. I went 2 days.. On Sat. when I went with Patti we were like a fine comb checking out all the stitching, quilting, applique.. I learn so much by looking at others work. I was excited to see my quilt in the show. And many of my friends had quilts in the show too. Milwaukee Art Quilters had their portals quilts in the show.. I still have to quilt mine.. ( love/hate thing.. ) So here I am in all my glory with my quilt "Gloria's Magic"....

Quilt Expo..

My sister and I had a good time at the show yesterday. I was shocked when we entered the area to see the quilts. Right in plain view was my quilt. It looked really nice. I was so happy. The quilts were beautiful and amazing as always. I will post a few of my favorites, some that my friends did. What works of art these pieces are. It was a long day for me because my friend Chris and I went to a SAQA (Studio art quilters association) dinner after the show. The gals were really nice and their work was incredible. It was good to see Wendy Butler Berns she has always been such an inspiration to me. If you click on the photo you can see it a bit bigger. Or you can go here to see this and other photos http://twitpic.com/h7fev
