Amy is hosting the Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival and lots of the blogs I read have entered - so I thought I will try, too :-)
This is one of my favourites I have completed over the last few months - the portarait of my middle DS who recently turned 10!
I vaguely followed a technique I saw in Quiltings Arts several years ago - turning a photograph into greyscale on the computer and then layering different shades of one colour, fusing them as you go. The fabric is silk chiffon I have hand painted. I used mystifuse to fuse the layers together, raw edge appliqued around the the different pieces and free-motion stitched clouds in the background. This is the third of three similar portraits I made, one for each of my sons, and it represents his character as he is a very cuddly, gentle child who likes to daydream :-) - and orange is his favourite colour! Size is 14"x11". I am entering it under Wall Hanging and Art Quilt.Here you can see my original post.
Apart from this, I have been busy on a secret project, it involves a pattern "There's a Square in There" by Kate Conklin and these fabrics:
Suz and I will come to the big smoke aka Auckland on Friday so I hope I will pick up more of a cream I have just not quite enough and fabrics for the back which is also pieced. I have been thinking about the quilting Kate recommends, tossing it up with Judi's Feather Swirls what do you think?
I had so many lovely comments to my last post and not gotten around to replying yet - apologies, I will do that very very soon - I really appreciate you visiting and commenting!
