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"....

Beautiful quilt. Sounds like the show was a lot of fun. I have never done a traditional quilt but I really appreciate their beauty and all the work.
