Hi Everyone - The end of 2014, and most of 2015 was spent moving from NY to NJ. I vow never to make a move again. I did manage to squeek out during this year my latest work.  The Minotaur, another addition to my mythology series.  I am now working on Hippolyte Hunting.  This is very much in its early stages.

Sorry I have been so 'absent' from the group.  I was truly overwhelmed by the move. I still can't find half my stuff!

Hi Everyone -

Perseus Saving Andromeda is finally starting to make the rounds. It is now at
Road to California Quilter's Conference and Showcase, where it won Best Large
Quilt. The quilt sat at home this whole past Fall, because I was not quite up to
par physically.

I have started holding classes at the Academy of Quilting.com (AOQ} I have
added instructional videos. This has been a whole new ballgame for me. I have
no one to take the video, so I have been both the cameraman and the subject. I
then edit out the raw parts so it looks OK. You can see one I did on YouTube,
either under Marilyn Belford, or Academy of Quilting. They posted it. There is
also another video called Progression of Fabric Application somewhere way down on AOQ'a Timeline, or way down on my Timeline.

Hi Marilyn, I received your lovely thank you card today.  If you do make a trip to Florida this winter I would love to meet you!.  I have met with Ally twice and met with Charlotte at the Lancaster AQS show last year.  It was so much fun.  Keep me posted and we'll see if we can make plans.  Thanks again.

Marilyn, I'm completely speechless and in awe of your work.  What attention to detail.  Simply a delight to see.  Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

After a miserable winter with the Shingles (which can knock you for a loop) I finally managed to finish "Perseus Saving Andromeda". It is posted up above in my slideshow.  It feels so good to take it down off my work wall!!  However, I DID enjoy working on it, especially the dragon.  He was such fun!!

I have been a bad girl about checking in.  Life intervenes.  I want to thank all of you for your kind words.  I DO appreciate it.

Hi Marilyn! I love all of your art quilts! I am have been trying an art quilt, but am struggling with it. Yours make it look so simple. How many hours does it take to do some of these?

Marlyn I have enjoyed your photo's and once again congratulations.

Hi Marilyn, I meant to send you a note yesterday - we went to the NJ Quiltfest on Friday and your Posiden was the first thing we saw as we walked in. He is stunning! It was a wonderful entrance to a great show. While I was there I got some fabric called "Wild Horses" by Exclusively Quilters (never heard of that brand before) that is going to be perfect for portrait quilts.

Happy New Year, everyone!!

Your quilts are absolutely amazing.  Rundy looks so lifelike, like it is a photo transfer.  I wouldn't even know where to think about starting to create anything like that or the others.  Must be a task to find the right shade/color of fabrics to make the people in them come to life so well.

I see you figured out how to accept the friend request! Thanks for your help on the photo of my Grandpa. I have some time before class begins to dig out more photos  for reference.

Marilyn, thank you for the compliments...when I took your class I didn't even know how to zig zag!  I learned so much in your class...I have only been at this for about two years now and there is a lot to learn...I love learning!  It is great to have you here with us...thanks again...

Thanks Marilyn for your kind words on my thread painting.  There is so much to learn and of course, practice, practice, practice.
