Cindy reporting in today.
At the most recent quilt show, sponsored by my guild, there were several quilts on display that used thread and fabric painting techniques. These quilts captured my attention because of their beauty but also because I am intrigued by the process of making art quilts with thread and painted fabric.
The center of these flowers were “fuzzy and furry”. This “fuzzy and furry technique”, for lack of a better term, added another dimension to the flowers…very life like!
The photo below is striking but this quilt is even more beautiful in real life. I think I stood in front of this for at least 15 minutes. There is so much to see and so many techniques to study. The shading of the sky, the log, the feathers, the grass…and even the dragonflies!
Here is a dragonfly up close and personal.
Look at all these fabrics working together…wow!
The Kingfisher shown below is another quilt I studied for quite some time.
So…after seeing these lovely art quilts, I think one of my goals for 2019 is to begin my art quilt journey and attempt fabric and thread painting.
