First, let me have a little scream. 115 followers! I only need 35 more by March 31st to meet my goal of 150. Has everyone checked out my giveaway? You only have 2 days left to enter. I will be posting another giveaway after that too.
I think I may have gone slightly over the edge on my next 3D art quilt. When I find something I think would look great as a 3D embellishment, I like to make a small sample of it. This gives me a chance to figure out what I need to prepare, how to apply the item and what attributes it brings to the quilt.
I tried out lego. It surprised me. I had originally thought I would just put it on...little did I realize all the planning it took to create a pleasing ensemble of it. And with lego only coming in certain sizes, I had to make sure there wasn't big gaps where the pieces didn't meet, or trying to squeeze too many pieces into too small of an area.
After several attempts I finally got it to work. I then drew it out on a sheet of paper to use as my template. I worked all in blue, but I think next time I would like to use an assortment of bright colours and make something a little more abstract. My background is a piece of fabric that has strips of blue fused down in a pattern similar to that of the lego, to give more depth and visual interest to the quilt.
