These art quilts don't have any special criteria expect for the fact that they will be 9x7 as they will be bound in a book at the end of the year.
|This is Borealis falling - January Art quilt|
For January, I chose to play with special threads and some fabrics I just love. I had some "what if" ideas, and tried them out. And boy am I learning
alot! I couldn't get my flash turned off....
|March's gift of pink tulips|
March is my birthday month, and one of the things I love is that the tulips begin to bloom. This month I wanted to try a technique of fusing used by Frieda Anderson. I am using her hand dyed fabrics, and her pattern....and I've run out of month. But I am continuing anyway. Frieda has a wonderful technique of mounting art on a peltex frame, and that I what I will end up doing. I will do one for my book and then one as a gift.... maybe for myself. Take a look and try these out! They're great!
These will be tulips in two shades....but right now you can't tell that! LOL. I love the background fabric and can't wait to quilt it. There will be some serious stitching time spent on this -- which I dearly love.
Then I'm trying to decide how to end this. This is a stupendous stitching class by Carol Ann Waugh, and I've entitled it "Breaking Out of the Box". Its ended up as more hand stitching than I had planned ... I do enjoy it. I haven't decided whether I'll mount it as part of my "series" or just what.
