Detailed Shots

Okay, so I am a little superstitious and have decided to make you wait one month before showing my full jacket.   By then I will have heard if it got into the Juried Show.  

So to keep you interested, I am showing you some detailed photos of quilts I took today. 
 I just love this quilt.   It is the first quilt I have done with no stippling on it.   The title is 'Let The Vines Shine Through'.   I received this vintage polyester fabric that was absolutely delicious and I just had to make  a quilt from it.  You can see it as the outer border below.

 I used my own hand dyed fabric, stamping, shiva paintstiks and my original 3D method as techniques for producing this art quilt.

This shot is of the jacket.   Each strip has a different free motion pattern to it, as well I alternated the thread colour on each strip.   It is entirely quilted with Wonderfil thread.


And of course, my dear Whimsical Wonder.  It resides in my bedroom and I just adore this quilt.

Absolutely amazing! I'm so afraid of free motion quilting, but I may muster up the confidence to try (again!). :)

I especially love the quilting!
