Out of the Box – finally finished

Back in 2004 I was sitting in Houston at the International Quilt Festival waiting for them to open the doors. I started sketching out a quilt that I wanted to make. (I know it was 2004 because I actually initialed and dated the sketch.) My friend Julana Winegarten was with me and I remember asking…

ACCEPTED!!

I just got a call that my piece “Bruiser” was accepted into the Fiber Works 2013 show! I’m so excited!! This is the first time I’ve entered anything into this show. You should be sure to check out this really good exhibit. It is July 12, 2013 through August 23, 2013 at the Arts and…

Some new work done…some old work finally finished.

Well I’ve been pretty busy. My long arm quilting machine was being bitchy so I ended up driving all the way to West Plains, MO (6 hrs each way) to the Gammill shop. The tech there – Gerald – got it all fixed up and it is working VERY well now. However during the time…

Bruiser

I’ve been waiting to add this piece to my blog and website www.janholzbauer.com until after Christmas. I don’t think my daughter Jillian reads my blog but I may be surprised. Anyway…just in case she did I didn’t want her to see this piece until after Christmas. It is a stitched photo of her beloved cat…

Black Bear is finished!!

I finally finished my black bear. I am really excited about the way he turned out. I think he looks awesome!! I think I started this back in January or February of this year and once I got the bear stitched I set him aside for quite awhile because I finally realized I was afraid…

Black Bear progress

                        Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted.  I finally got back to work on my black bear project.  It has just been hanging on the wall staring at me for quite a while.  I’ve been busy working on other projects: block of the month last year for quilt guild and now for this…

New Project

I have a new project I finally got started on. In the summer of 2009 my husband and I rode his motorcycle down to the mountains in southeastern Oklahoma. We have often travelled down to this area because it’s beautiful in the fall!! On this particular trip as we were nearing Queen Wilhemina lodge we…

Still here

I’ve been busy working on a variety of projects.  That’s why I don’t blog very often.  I’ve still been working on UFO’s since finishing school but I’ve been doing some new things too.  Seems like there is always some new something to try.  🙂  So let’s see what I’ve been doing.  This is the painted…

Summer Doings

I went to Temecula, CA in May for a workshop with Patt Blair – www.pattsart.com    We learned to paint images on fabric using pigmented inks.  I LOVE this technique.  This is one of the paintings that I started there.  I finished it at home.  I also started a painting of my daughter but haven’t…

UFO’s

Well since graduating in December I have been busy finishing up some projects that I actually started before I started back to college.   No certain order to them…just what struck my fancy to be working on at the time.  This is a pre-printed panel that I added the borders and quilting to.  I LOVE the…

Series Finished

I finally finished the four pieces that I was making for my senior art exhibit.  The opening reception was this past Thursday night and it was a lot of fun!  The best part was seeing my pieces hanging on the wall together.  Then I got an opportunity to share for a few minutes about my…
