Fall Wall Hanging Created During Pandemic

  • I completed this fall wall hanging during the lock down. The confetti foreground had been completed and sitting in a container.  I started out by using Nancy Zieman and Natalie Sewell’s book The Art of Landscape Quilting  for technique ideas.  They used glue sticks to attach the pieces but I didn’t find this to my liking so used misty fuse rather than steam-a -seam-2 to back my fabrics so the quilt  wouldn’t be too stiff.  I rough cut several fabrics for the distant leaves and made some detailed close-up leaves using inktense pencils. My figure was also painted using inktense pencils.

 

Book of Animals for Upcoming 1st birthday of my Granddaughter

I spent the month of January having fun working on an original book to give to my granddaughter, Madeline, on her upcoming first birthday, May 14. I used applique for most of the creatures and added a bit of background here and there with inktense pencils. I was especially pleased with my red cardinal made with inktense pencils.. I was not pleased with the fusible interfacing I used so if advising anyone, I would suggest backing the pages with a sew-in-interfacing. I used Avery printable fabric sheets to print the text. To hold the book together I made two sets of eyelets through each page and laced it together with cord.
