This is the art quilt I made that will go to the Sauder Quilt Show. I will drop this off tomorrow. This is paint and thread on black fabric. My last year's quilt using this technique did quite well. But we'll see. One can never count on anything where shows are concerned. I am just happy to go and enjoy everyone's work. Quilting is such a time consuming passion that we need to appreciate all the time and energy that goes into making. I really love patchwork too but have never entered one into a show. I am thrilled to get those done! Anyway, wish me luck!
This Bunny is my new painting and lives (for now) in the same room where I plan to use the Sarah Fielke BOM Down the Rabbit Hole quilt I'm working on. We're not supposed to post BOM pictures but I am busy appliqueing and learning new tricks. Thought I would share my painting. I call him "Harvey" since he is 36" tall. My spare bedrooms have some whimsy in their décor to amuse my grandkids.
I sold this painting yesterday. I have also been displaying little paintings in an office in Ft Wayne IN. They have started to go there as well once I began the fun animals and plant paintings. Small quilts did not sell. But I like to keep my quilts anyway. Here's one I had in their office for quite sometime.
That one got some recognition at a local show. Yes it is painted. I finally decided that I need to piece or applique my quilts and paint pictures. Looks like I have the right idea finally!
