- 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.
During the SAQA ( Studio Art Quilting Association) conference which is being held in Toronto Ontario March 19-21, 2020 there will be a Spotlight auction. Below is the piece I have contributed. I sun printed birch leaves on pebeo setaolor painted fabric and quilted with holographic threads. Because it reminded me of a frosty morning, I entitled it In the Frost.
Yesterday I finished my spotlight auction piece. I had sun printed a piece using metallic paints in blue and copper. I used metallic threads in copper and blue to quilt the leaves .
