Creating Children's Artwork Quilts was my first book. It shares my journey from early on when my children would paint or draw right onto fabric for me and I would create simple quilts with these pieces to later when my girls no longer wanted to "play" this game any more and I was still inspired by their artwork. I started recreating their pieces as closely as I could to the original artwork. Over time I began using their artwork as a source of inspiration for quilts, often enlarging them or combining multiple pieces of artwork and writing into single art quilts. To this day I am still enamored with young children's artwork because of it's whimsical, folk art qualities! The book also cover the tools and techniques I have used over the years. Enjoy tons of pictures of original art and the quilts made from it to help inspire you to create using children's artwork as your inspiration!
