Quilting

New Work, ahoy!!

Well, I finally got my latest Quilted Painting framed (here's a close-up of some of the stitching). I have several large pieces in the works, and I'm also right smack in the middle of doing *GASP* a comprehensive inventory of all my art. But, mainly I'm polishing up...

Adam -n- Eve

This is a detail of a particular Quilted Painting that I'm dropping off today at the Lexington Art League -- their annual Member's Open show starts with a "4th Friday" celebration on July 24th! Each member of the Art League submits a piece to this show, which equals...

Too cute. In blues this time.

Here's the other little quilted painting that I finished...oh, about...3 months ago. (Things are very busy around here, but I'm VERY much looking forward to makin' stuff out of all the new petfood bags I've received lately!) This lil' one here is about 3.5 by 7...

Mini-Stitchery

This "mini-sized" quilted painting is just right for a One-Day project...it can honestly be done in a few hours. It's only 5 inches by 3.5 inches, and made it in the same manner as my larger quilted paintings. Both hand and machine sewn, only completed much, much...

Quilted Farmhouse (updated)

This quilted painting was inspired by a dream I had. I blogged about it previously, before I even did any quilting, but the color in the photo turned out too yellow. Now I've got a photo that I'm satisfied with! I couldn't really paint exactly what I saw while I was...

Silked, Batiked, Quilted

Here's another quilted painting (I love doing these!) except this one is on silk, and I used a method of batik to preserve the white areas. I also quilted it by hand using embroidery thread, which took about 10 hours...I was sooo nervous about using the machine on the...

Even More Stitchery

I'm having difficulty photographing my new quilted paintings...it's a challenge to light them exactly right, to bring out the three-dimensions you see in "real life" viewing. This quilted painting is about 9x11 inches (including binding on edge) and matches another...

Crop Circle – Flip Side

I'm considering several ways to finish up the quilting on my Crop Circle Quilt, so I'm taking this opportunity to show a picture of the back side. I've also posted a few more tidbits about the process on Craftster, which I'll tidy-up later and present here later in...

More Stitchery

I must have jinxed my sewing machine by discussing her performance behind her back...for she seems to have pooped out on me now. Makes an awful grinding noise and refuses to go. I got about half the free-motion done on the painting I mentioned previously, but the...

Quilted Paintings

I've been practicing free-motion quilting. Mainly I've been practicing forcing my machine to do it's free-motion-thing for me...But when it's cooperating, the sun shines through and all is wonderful and right with the world. (Doesn't it seem that way with every...
