My first blog posting

Hi Everyone; This is my first blog posting!I am so excited; I am working on a new art quilt...I have completed the top, and it is the Largest art quilt that I have ever attempted(65"X82").


I really liked the fabric (my own hand-dyed), and didn't want to cut it up too much...I think it has the look of a painting. I am a little tired, and overwhelmed with the next big step--attaching the backing, and then the machine quilting! I am also going to dye some fabric; I'm getting lot's done; one step at a time! To learn more about my quilting; go to my website at http://www.annnelullie.com/. We were recently in Iowa visiting my family, and here is a beautiful photo of my daughter Sarah, and my (new) niece Olivia:

I will post more pictures of my quilt in progress--I have a few (!) other things I am working on, also.

Great blog and website! It is great to see how contemporary painting (and abstraction and modernism)is affecting quilting, there must be just mines of information in traditional quiltingthat if brought into this post-modern environment would knock socks off! Check out what Ghada Amer is doing with embroidery..
