QUILTSCAPES with Rebecca Barker.

Strawberry Basket

It all began with this card. It came from one of my dear friends...
 And of course I sniffed it. lol
( then I tried calling my friend but her line was busy) 
SEW I went searching for her, not my friend, the artist -online...Ü
And I found her and called her and invited her here.
( the artist not my friend) Work with me!

Seriously, I could not get over the beauty of it.
You know how much I love red and white and a basket
of strawberries, well as I said fresh looking enough to sniff...lol..

The artist is Rebecca Barker and she does these
amazing QUILTSCAPEs paintings then makes them
into note cards..And what do you know, she also can be

Rebecca grew up on her family's dairy farm in OHIO. 
She grew up with quilts and they certainly have become her inspiration.
Take a peak at these...

Grandmothers Flower Garden

I just love this one too- my passion for buttercream
well I almost fainted....I LOVE THIS ONE. 
I want to curl up on that swing with this quilt....
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!join me....

Spools

Is this one just pretty enough to frame..well all of them
can be...love the colors, the quilted spools...


Oh look at those apples and colors of the grass,
the quilt, well everything...ME = FAN..yep...lol

Rebecca paints in acrylic on masonite boards. She chooses patterns
from quilt books and shows that she attends. She seems to find inspiration
everywhere she goes. This lady knows her quilt patterns too. She shared with me she quilts
as well.  She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Ohio University and also attended
Miami's University graduate painting school. 


This one is not a card....but look at the detail...all the seasons
are included...perfection....


Main Street

Oh look, she even included a quilt shop...of course!

Melon Patch

Do you all recognize this pattern, I seem
to remember one of our recent guests quilted one like this..?




Can you believe the clarity, depth of these...?
and all but one are note cards....

She is offering a giveaway of 10 NOTE CARDS

If I was lucky enough to win I would pick #68 Pumpkin Patch, #41 Spools, #70 Sunflowers, #77 Hen and Chicks and #32 Crazy Quilt. I would frame one of each and give the others away. Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

  11. I've been a huge Rebecca Barker fan for years. For Christmas about five years ago hubby gave me two large prints and I had them professionally matted and framed. Grandmother's Flower Garden is hanging above my computer and Autumn Leaves Quiltscape is hanging in the guest room. My mouse pad is the Spools design. I love everything she's done and would love any assortment of cards!

  15. Wow! Who could possibly choose just 10! I love lighthouses, so that one would be on my list. I have a grandmother's flower garden made by hand by my grandmother, so that one. The sunflowers and the tulips..... I'm working on a streak of lightening for my son right now. The main street is adorable. Love the patriotic ones. I could go on, but really, there isn't one I don't love. Thanks for the chance to win, but I'm definitely bookmarking.

There's more...# 14 Autumn, #200 Christmas, #99 Show and Tell. I thought I was through when I noticed "Page 2". Oh my goodness. Then I saw #79 (no title) and fell in love. And #108 Quilts For Sale, and #83 Barn Raising, and #2 Grandmother's Flower Garden and #45 Garden Basket. I don't know how anyone could choose just 10 and just 5...no way! Your work is amazing.

    Rebecca Barker is one of my favorite artists. I try and buy her calendar every year. My very favorite print is Sunflowers, the fields and elevator make me think of home. I also love the ocean themed ones.

Yes, your cards speak to me, of live and of all lifes events.

  124. I've been sending her cards for years...but, I do tend to hold them back for just the mostest special people (and there are some that are just too beautiful to send, LOL!). I have never seen the first one with the basket of strawberries - I want to make that quilt! I have a quilting book she published...now I need to dig it out and see if there is a pattern for the strawberry baskets! I would be happy with any of them (and it is possible that I would actually send them!).

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)
