Bits & Pieces

Trying new things

Published on 07/16/08

I got started on this small art quilt at my mom’s house during a week of vacation. It combines several fun and new techniques – using a silk tie, organza, felting couching and my favorite, new beading techniques. It was a lot of fun to do.

Here are a few of my other fun art quilt projects. I am hanging them in groups under the shelves in my dining room. I brings me joy to see them hanging there.

This was made from acrylic felt and organza. I got the idea from a “Quilting Arts” magazine and came up with my own design for the flower. You use a heat tool to melt away the excess organza and felt to leave the fun design. The edges are couched with yarns.

A friend of mine knitted the background of this piece for me. The organza and the yarn were needle felted into a background cotton fabric with batting. The hummingbird base is angelina fibers and secured with thread painting. It was then meander quilted with a mono-filament thread.

This image is a close up of a thread painted piece that features several areas of dense bead work. It makes me think of a flower that has gone to seed and how beautiful even the end of things can be.

Here is the completed flower piece.
