My partner is busy with life and I thought that I'd post pics for her so she doesn't have to fret none
*Golden Girls reference anyone?*
Ok, so I have a favorite book called the Art of Manipulating Fabrichttp://www.amazon.com/Art-Manipulating-Fabric-Colette-Wolff/dp/0801984963
I used a few that I remembered but most of the quilt was done like doodling. I worked on it in spurts and it has a really fun feel to it. It's pretty cohesive despite the different little areas of individual techniques. The actual "quilting" is just knots, I did all the work on the cotton batting and then sewed the edge of quilt by hand. It took time but I enjoyed doing that part.
So this is the whole thing on the towel bar in my bathroom. I like it hanging in this direction but I can be hung any way. I included ribbon so she can decide what she likes best
It's kind of flag shaped...
Here is the corner. I did a lot of techniques on this part. Some couching, some pick stitching...
This section was stitched by machine. I used whatever color I had on my machine. Cerulean, peach, black, turquoise...
I tucked the yellow under the purple and stuck a lace remnant between it. I like the imperfection, it breaks the monotony of sewing
I made some yo yo's because they are way too fun. Some I sewed nicely and some I used large hand stitches.
Some details of the lace and my favorite red batik. I horde every piece of this batik
The "quilting" tee hee!
That's all for now. I had so much fun with this little quilt. I took it to the beer fest in Flagstaff and to visit my sister in LA. It's a well traveled little quilt
