I just completed this mini art quilt for the lovely sheepBlue in the IYP Swap: Round 23.  She requested an art quilt for her wall of Craftster-made art, but left the subject up to me.  While digging through the scrap bins at work (I run a costume shop at a university), I found some great burnout velvet fabrics that I knew I wanted to use.  Added to that some silk dupioni planets, sheer metallic mesh, sequin trim, lace, beads, and a lot of rayon embroidery thread, and you have the solar system!



Sun was created with layers of metallic mesh, primitive pleated silk organza, and some metallic spandex, covered with free-motion embroidery and gold beads.




Saturn is made of a gold and pink silk dupioni that we used on stage in Dangerous Liaisons this year, and lots of AB glass beads.


Earth was made of cotton, and free motion embroidered.

Im an art teacher and just finished a lesson on story quilts.  Your concept and execution of this project is so creative.  Was the project completely organic from start to finish or did you sketch the idea out first?

Hi Satchelgirl.  I came up with an exceptionally vague sketch first, then let it go from there.  I knew I wanted the solar system to be offset from the center, and I wanted to use as many textures as I could whenever I found them.  After the very vague first sketch I kind of just let it evolve as it wanted to.  Smiley
