Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria, VA. is opening this Saturday 18th at 3:00 pm its latest art challenge exhibit called “Metallics”. The challenge requested submissions of 8" x 10" mixed media creations celebrating the shine of metallics. More than 90 entries were received including my “Metallic Owl”. There are art quilts, collages, jewelry and more in a stunning range of styles, colors and techniques. I already saw some of the pieces and they are amazing!

My quilt called " In the day of the death: La Catrina de Jose Guadalupe Posada" won 3rd place at the International Expo Patchwork & Quilt Puebla 2013, in their contest themed "Mexican Traditional Holidays". Out of the 14 finalist quilts, mine received 3rd place. Thank you to the quilt show organizers and to Janome Mexico Latin-America for my prize. I always say in my classes that quilting began as a hobby. But now, more than ever, it is a passion. www.quiltsbymaris...

First I cropped Michael out from our 2012 family picture. Using Photoshop, I erased the boys from the sides, reconstructed the rocks and his shirt and used some filters to blur the background. I changed to black and white and printed on fabric. I painted the fabric using Tsukineko Inks. I put the quilt together and did some Free Motion. Get your own picture of your beloved and give me a call, I can make the quilt portrait for you or even teach you how to do it yourself! www.quiltsbymaris...

QUILTS BY MARISELA: My Love, My Accomplice And My Everything...

quiltsbymarisela.blogspot.com

How much does somebody’s life change after love is found? Mine changed A LOT! Here’s a quilt of the love of my life. I hand painted it after I printed on fabric (see more about the process in the second picture). The words I added in the bottom are a verse of Mario Bennedetti’s poem: “my love, my accomplice and my everything… “ and that’s exactly what Michael is for me. Thanks Sweetheart for being part of my life. I love you. Marisela. www.quiltsbymaris...

(Detail) This spring I got a stalker. He watched me almost every time I left or came home. One day I was lucky and I was able to shoot a great pic of him through my window. He's gone now and I miss him. Here is the quilt I made out of his picture. By the way, my students in next Saturday's Free Motion Quilting class are going to be the first ones to see this quilt in person and learn how to quilt leaves plus many other motifs. QUILTS BY MARISELA original design.
