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

He Loves Me He Loves Me Not

This is one of the best days of my life.. I have finished my all time favorite quilt ( so far). This has been a labor of love for about 7 months.  I will be handing it off to Wendy next week and the next time I will see it will be in Houston in Nov.  I'm so excited to be a part of her exhibit and to get the chance
( God Willing) to go to Houston this year.  My daughter and her cat have never looked better...
The binding looks funny because I tried to get the background out in photoshop and it kind of made the binding look funny.  This quilt is 51x63".

My feet are barely touching the ground.

Wow.. wow... wow.... so many good things have been happening to me lately.  God has truly blessed me.  Last week I found out that 4 of my quilts will be in the Milwaukee Machine Quilting Show the first week of August.  Then I was asked to send a photo of my Triple Trillium to Olbrich Botanical Gardens because I sent a photo of my quilt and they wanted a better photo for their newsletter.  My quilt Triple Trillium was accepted in the show.  That is is Madison WI. in Sept. to Oct.. you can see more about the show here 
I found out today that my quilt The Unknown Spirit that I made for Alzheimer's

( AAQI ) was picked as one of the 53 to travel in an exhibit called
"Alzheimer's Illustrated: From Heartbreak
to Hope"  I am soooo honored to be a part of that exhibit.. more details here..


 I found out today was accepted by Ellen Anne Eddy to use in her lecture in which she show slides and tells the stories of why someone
makes a quilt. I'm really honored.. Her work is incredible.. SHe has been one of my most admired quilters/teachers since I started quilting.  I was very lucky to have met her last year in Rosemont.. what a wonderful women... witty and soooo talented..


What a week.. I am so happy...  I feel like I am walking on air..
