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

Rust Tex Collection- Look to the Cross


Thought I would post my piece... since I got the o.k. from Lois.  I entered this piece into the rust tex collection.  I will know hopefully in a month or so if it was accepted... even if it isn't I still really like how it turned out.  I used a technique I learned from Cynthia Corbin.  There are 2 layers of tulle over the middle of the cross and beads around the outside piece of tulle. I rusted my fabrics and used leaf tea on them.  ( the gray comes from the tannin in the tea).  In this call for entries you had to use some rusted fabric in your piece.  Rusting the fabric is a very neat technique. I really had fun quilting this quilt.

It's hard to believe everyone is trying to rust fabric now. I spent 30 years trying to keep my well water from throwing rusty splotches on my clothes! Good job, Laura. Your piece looks wonderful. Kathy Schmidt
