Even with the grandkids here and a lot of hustle and bustle over the weekend, I managed to make a little sewing time and finished this little art quilt. This is the second piece Jamie will be taking with her to decorate her dorm room during her year abroad (you can see the first here).

Once again, I resorted to my favorite medium for the background – you will recall my tutorial on fabric collage.  On this occasion, however, I had some wider strips left over from the quilt I made for Jamie, so I decided to vary a little and cut leaf shapes which I overlapped to cover the area. I also used some of the thinner strips. And, of course, a choice of sheer ribbons…

I also chose a different color organza this time and went for a pale gold:

This is the first time I try my hand at threadpainting and I must say I was fascinated. I recently invested in quite a collection of decorative threads, so I can see there’s going to be a lot more of this in the future. (-:

    This is a nice technique, Angie. The final look is smooth and pleasant to sight. I’m sure Jamie will love to show it in her room, and I can imagine her friends asking for something similar for their walls too!

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
