    I am a terrific doodler. I finally began doodling in a sketch book so I can more easily refer back to ideas, rather than trying to keep little scraps of paper. Thanks for the give-away–love Bari J’s designs!

  9. Annette Millard says:

    A few years ago I started saying Sewing is My Superpower. It’s a popular phrase now, but it meant a lot to me when I first realized what a superpower sewing really is. My mother transformed inexpensive fabric into acts of love While sewing most of clothing as had her mother before her. What an amazing and artistic power they passed on to me in teaching me to make beautiful things from whatever was available. Sewing restores the soul and I have seen that so often in the lives of others as well as myself. My favorite thing in the whole world is walking into my studio, looking to see what I have on hand and transforming it into something beautiful and full of joy. Truly a superpower, I am thrilled to exercise whenever I can! (And…. I LOVE Bari J!!! Oh, my, what fun I would have if I win!!)

  41. Cathy sanders says:

    The artistic power I have is seeing the finished block and looking toward the finished project.

  42. Joanne G. says:

    I discovered a while ago that I write really well. Now I’m trying to always believe that!

    I learned how to work almost any mistake into the design…a carry-over from my fashion illustration class ages ago in during high school.

    Sewing with horrible morning sickness and a crazy 2 year old!!

  46. Kathleen Murphy says:

    well my artistic superpower is a precious gift, handed down to me through generations ; from my mom’s flair for mixing colors, putting sceneries together and visionary view of the bigger picture, to my grandmother’s exquisite sewing talents and great appreciation for fabrics. Although I am nowhere near the talents of either of these inspiring women, quilting gives me the ability to tap into what they’ve so kindly passed on to me. 🙂

  47. Amy Frye says:

    I have discovered quilting. Quilts were always something I admired when I went to grandmother’s homes. To me, quilts looked like the beautiful patterns and colors I would see in the kaleidoscope I played with every time I went to my paternal grandmother’s home.

    On a whim one day, I talked to my husband about getting a sewing machine and started working on my first quilt. I have been quilting all 2016 and I absolutely love it.

  48. Lisa Bien says:

    Who knew I would be good at mixing colors and prints,not only in decorating my home and in the clothes I wear, but now in quilting.

  50. Elizabeth Dyer says:

    I use my artistic talent to put together fabrics/colors that make a quilt pleasing to the eye.

  51. Lori Morton says:

    My artistic super power is sewing love into every stitch when making a gift for each person…making it specially just for them, and knowing they feel my love added in.
    (Am still working on more artistic ways, like specially FMQ each one to suit the person..the colors are pretty conquered, and patterns too.) I am still fairly new to super powerss in artistic ways lol

  55. Susan Beasley says:

    At 50, I started creating pincushions from damaged quilts to sell in my antiques booth. The pincushions are now more of my inventory than the antiques. I have a few wholesale customers who take my work to shows all over the country and I’m very proud of my hand stitching callous and giant “just in case” fabric stash. I think often of the many hundreds of my pincushions in use in sewing rooms all over! I’m such a fan of Bari J and her luscious fabric and her overall aesthetic. Thanks for this great giveaway!

  56. Pam says:

    What wonderful eye candy in this post! I think I’m kind of an average quilter but I guess my superpower is the ability to whip out quick sewn gifts when I need them (or more often, when my daughters ask me to come up with something for their friends or coworkers.) Thanks for this awesome giveaway. That fabric makes me swoon! )

The only craft that I was truly taught or given lessons for was crochet. My grandparents taught me when I was about 6 years old. Love to just let my creativity flow!

  65. Michelle Baker says:

    I am a quilting ninja! I always thought I needed a pattern, but I just let the quilt speak to me…and it always does! Free motion quilting on Bari js fabric it a treat. It feels wonderful and it “speaks” beautifully!

    Bari j you inspire me with your beautiful line of fabric After I lost my mom, I became very lost. I was introduced to quilting and fell in love with the possibility of making a gift that is a labor of love. My artistic super power came to me when I realized I was good at putting colors together and creating my own patterns. I learned to be not afraid to try new things. Sometimes I create instead of sleeping ;-( creating new works of art makes my heart smile and is fulfilling to the soul.

  91. Patricia sherman says:

    Appreciation of art and desire to explore different techniques

    I have great endurance!

  105. irene Harvalias says:

  116. meg says:

Shebam! Zazoo!!

  124. Candace Mackey says:

    Since learning to quilt I’ve discovered my ‘super power’ is the ability to create from wool and fabric! I create sculptures from wool and art quilts from fabric. I love that I’ve found this ‘talent’ after reaching the age of 62, and hope to find more ‘powers’ as time goes on!

    • Sheila Rideout says:

  132. Dana Galasso says:

    Don’t read the what you should “not” do articles, just do it — it’s so much fun and you make something wonderful.

  133. janet mckeever says:

    what artistic super-power have I discovered in myself?…who knew?!…I have become totally enamored of English paperpiecing and flawless applique!…also all the embroidery and hand stitching…the slow-stitch movement is a direction that fits my personality and I didn’t even know it!

  134. Julie Stump says:

    The artistic super power I have discovered that I have is that I’m willing to play. Ask “what if” and just go forward without fear.

  135. Sheila Rideout says:

    I took a drawing class as my first real art class after retirement and found that I can’t draw without thinking about how to translate my drawing into fiber art! I am working on improving my free motion stitching so that it reflects some of the drawing style. My first piece was a version of my final drawing assignment of a “monster” – the scary boy from the movie the Grudge. I used antique kimono pieces with free motion to detail his face. I still like it as my first effort!! I’ll send you a photo if you would like to see it. Thanks!

It allows me to create things that I never would have thought I could have accomplished where it not for this ability to jump into a project before the fear of “it is too hard for me” enters my mind.

  142. martyt says:

    Sometimes am just so pleased with what I do produce.

  143. Pem says:

    My superpower is the ability to only make one thing at a time, I create only one project from start to finish without starting any other project. This superpower requires dedication and willpower to not be distracted or enticed by new fabrics, designs and threads until I have completed my current project. The dividend is that I have no UFO’s.

    My artistic Superpower: Patience, my art is using fabrics and I love doing English paper piecing. I keep being told i have to have lots and lots of patience if i like doing so detailed. So my superpower is patience.
