Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams

Quilting, rants and raves and I am sure I will talk to my grandson.

December 24, 2015 the real episode 54

I am over hauling my episode numbers as some of my early episodes have disappeared.... THIS episode is the real 54.   I talk about the quilts that I finished except for the binding...... and just blathering a lot.

I also remind everyone about the BOXING DAY SEW IN on the day after Christmas.... instead of going nuts at the stores buying things you really do not need ..... join us in our jammies as we meet up on INSTAGRAM, TWITTER and FACE BOOK's TWILTER GROUP.... not a member just ask to join and we will welcome you.

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in Just talking, podcasting attempts, reviews


JUST want everyone to know that iTunes send messages that they are upgrading the POD-CAST services over the holiday. ( They do this every year.)  New episodes might not be uploaded to iTUNES... which means you should direct download from here or Stitcher.

Hoping everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS with HEAT ! ! !

More Art Quilt Challenge Pictures

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in Just talking, Quilts, FREE MOTION QUILTING, QUILT SHOWS

I ran out of room on WORDPRESS for pictures so I am adding some pictures here on my POD-BEAN blog. These quilts are from an Art Challenge that will be sent to exhibits in Europe. The quilters made quilts based on the style of various Master Painters, including Georgia O Keefe, Van Gogh, Klimt, Hokusari, Hundertwasser,and Frankenhalter. I love the various hand stitches t used and find inspiration from the embellishments and free motion quilting used by the quilters.

YOU can find more pictures on my WORD PRESS blog on my original posts!  I am also adding my TWO CENTS about what I think about some of the pieces.  AS you know I have an opinion about just about everything.

26-Art Quilt Challenge Inspired by Master Painters

. This piece is very detailed piece of folk art.  It is nicely executed piece and the workmanship (which can not be well viewed unless the photo is seen in the original form and zoomed in) was well done.  My only quibble with this piece might be that there is not a lot of value variances  that allow you to actually visualize all  work that went into the piece.  I personally feel the dark background hid the stitches and camouflaged many of the patches.  This is my personal opinion and is based on my own vision deficits that makes it difficult to see the details,  I am sure not everyone will feel the same seeing this quilt.

-Art Quilt Challenge Inspired by Master Painters

In my estimation this is a well execute piece of abstract fiber art.   I do not know if this how heavily influenced it was by the original art work as I am not familiar with abstract paintings.  What I like about the piece is the balance of light, medium and dark values.  I like the use of the different types of fabrics.  I especially like the use of the decorative stitches to thread paint and quilt the piece.  I personally do not think quilters take advantage and use the wonderful decorative stitches our machines can deliver.  I do want to say over and above using the stitches they highlighted the various shapes in the piece.  The stitches were well executed and having done this type of work before I know how hard that is to accomplish.  The starts and stops of the stitching was invisible.

-Art Quilt Challenge Inspired by Master Painters

I found this piece to be a mystery and a wonderment;  I could not figure out how it was done.  Is the face a  photo on fabric, a drawing from an exceptional artist I could not tell even close up to the quilt (It was mounted about a foot above my head at a difficult angle to see)  .... and then there is the FMQ.  On close examination in zoom I noted the FMQ was done with very fine thread of matching color to the piece.  It added shine and highlights to the quilt.  It was subtle and understated but I think perfect for this piece.        ..

-Art Quilt Challenge Inspired by Master Painters

Any body want to go to this cafe in Europe?  Looks like a Starry Night, a night perfect, for glass of wine and a really great dessert.  The FMQ quilting mimics the patchwork. I think this piece was a combination of pieced work, applique and painting details with a ink product.  I do not think the quilter could  have gotten such a detail and painter effect in this quilt without manipulating the fabric with dyes or inks.  I do not think paint was used because the colors were soaked into fabric and not sitting on top of the fabrics as paints are likely to do.

I reviewed this on the WORD PRESS blog post .... but I repeated the picture here... cause I reallllllly liked it.

HAPPY QUILTING,

NONNIE

Reading to my grandson….

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in Just talking, podcasting attempts, reading for kids

Every night someone in the family reads bedtime stories to my grandson.  I recently started recording me reading to him and burning the readings to a cD.  We then put the cD in the player and he listens to it as he falls asleep.  I did this for my daughter when she was young... I used a tape recorder then.

I am posting the readings for other children to enjoy.  The include me reading, some descriptions of the pictures I am seeing; comments or questions I make when I read.  My grandson has access to the books, on the cD, so that he can read along, whenever we ride in the car or he is "RESTING" pre-Nap.

Actually I am hoping this will spur others to learn how to creat mp3 files so that they too can save their voices for their families and their future kids and grand-kids.  IF I CAN DO IT, anyone can do it.

Nonnie,

Caprese Salad like my Mother use to make!

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in Uncategorized, Just talking

August 8, 2011,

Summer Caprese Salad like MY Mother Made!

Slice lots of summer tomatoes... light salt and pepper, good olive oil, good wine or balsamic vinegar.  Set aside in a cool place or refrigerate but a lot of people think you should avoid refrigerating tomatoes.  I often add chopped basil, parsley and a little garlic at this point.  My daughter does not like the garlic so sometimes I make her separate salad. (Chill for an hour at the least.)

Slices of YOUR favorite fresh mozzarella.

Washed and dried fresh basil.

To assemble:   Stack tomato slice with mozzarella with basil leaf between.  I like to stack several slices of tomato with a toothpick through all.  A small basil leaf on the top.

Enjoy
