Good Morning, Quilters and Art Lovers!
Let’s visit an art museum!
When is the last time you visited an art museum? Were you on vacation or in your home town?
Seamstresses in Fine Art Saturdays
I love Saturdays-for a lot of reasons–like coffee and a drive with the hubby–but also for Seamstresses in Fine Art at LKQ. I love searching for new seamstresses every week.
Impressionists LOVED Seamstresses!
I’m often amazed by how many artists painted ladies sewing, knitting or doing other handwork.
For more than five years, I’ve added a new painted or illustrated seamstress and I continue to find more!
One reason for this-the Impressionist artists preferred to capture the small events of every day life-impressions, rather than the idealized nature scenes of the Romantic Art establishment.
Be a Seamstress with Fine Art!
Let’s start our own online gallery! Please send me a photo of yourself at an art museum.
If possible, find a seamstress or tailor and pose in front of her or him!
Send photos to Lori@LoriKennedyQuilts and use “Seamstress Gallery” in the subject line.

How Art Helps Quilters
As you peruse the fine art collection think about color, composition and line. Consider how the masters used these elements to create their artwork.
Ask yourself if there’s anything you can bring to your quilting.
