Week 10 Challenge. Yep, I'm posting early this week and I don't even know how that happened. Last weekend, we went on the Miracle Mile Art Walk in Los Angeles and then to Santa Monica to catch the sights. A great time was had by all but you can check out the details of the Art Walk on Casey's blog at

This week has been very busy. I had to finish my art midterm drawing of a building in Balboa Park. I went on Wednesday afternoon and again on Friday and it is now finished. Not perfect but a decent attempt. I am learning lots in my college art class and my motto is going to be "If I can draw it, I can quilt it. "

This week's mini quilt is a Mixed Media piece that I got the idea from the dvd "Mixed Media Art Quilts" by Beryl Taylor. I'm not that much into mixed media, but I think I started and finished a good attempt. I used reverse applique, making mixed media out of watercolor paper, walnut dyes,shiva paints, stamps and ink, fibers, glue and jellies, metal pieces and silk ribbon. I'm sure I left something out but it was hard to stop once I got into it. It turned out ok and it was lots of fun. I learned lots and really worked outside of my box. Makes me wonder what I'm going to do for next week's project. We shall see.. Just remember to challenge yourself and keep on quilting.
