Mandalas and Quilting

If I could sew, I would put Indigoluna's gorgeous mandala piece in the center of a quilt using her richly colored hand dyed quilting squares . What a stunning piece that would be! Indigoluna's multi talents are evident when you visit her interesting shop on etsy. Get your shopping list handy and make sure to read her blog as well.

Indigo Luna

Today I am featuring the etsy shop Indigoluna. Please read the artist's bio below.

"I have always been an artist. I have always drawn, cut, pasted, painted, collected, sewn, written and dreamed. I have been driven by the question, “What if?” (and fighting against its archenemy, “That won’t work!”)I also wear many other hats. Among other things, I am a sign language interpreter, an energy worker, a minister, a blogger, a wife to a wonderful and creative man, and a mother to two wild and amazing little girls. All of these roles shape and change and inform my art.I am a 5th generation Oregonian. This lush and verdant environment is in my blood. I grew up in a valley surrounded by tree-covered hills and blessed with a great deal of rain. I memorized the names of flowers as a child. I picked basketsful of mushrooms in the damp woods and studied moss and built forts inside of blackberry thickets. After traveling the United States, I can’t imagine living anywhere else.My work has appeared on the cover of the 2005 Quilting Arts Calender, in Artella Magazine, Art/Quilt Magazine, Fiberarts Design Book 6, as well as many juried shows.Visit my blog at"
