I’ve been missing in action from blogland, but as you can tell from the photo, I was still working on art. This photo hails from a stop at a beautiful Virginia vineyard, just beautiful. Did I say it was beautiful? Beautiful.
This is my weekly journal quilt 26/52 2008, 6″ x 8″. This piece *WOW* I say it louder! * took me quite a while. It is a study for a larger work. I created this piece by cutting tiny strips of black and white fabrics and fusing them to black and white fabrics, a red batik or a teal hand dyed solid. I then sandwiched these tops with batting and backing fabric. I proceeded to stitch/quilt the pieces with straight stitches and zig zag stitches. At that time, I cut the quilted pieces into the squares and rectangles shapes you see. I finally zig zagged the pieces “back” together, fused another piece of fabric to the back for stability, and zig zagged the edges of the piece.
This piece is for sale for $30 in my Etsy shop.
