My first art quilt
Cut loose, cut wonky and create a work of art with Judith Trager.
What materials did you use?
cotton fabrics, Gold and rose colored taffeta.
Looks like you separated the Beach fromthe flower garden! Looks great, Eve!
Wow. That's gorgeous! What was your technique for "finding, building, making" your big flowers?
The flowers were a bit of a happy accident. I used a gold mesh and another gold/pink shiny material I bought years ago to make a costume for one of the kids. I roughly cut out a flower shapes from both and layered them together. I put a small piece of interface behind and just machine stiched them together. Some I added and center made of a different material, some not, just did some heavy stitching to create a middle. All the flowers were a bit different and I did reject some. I then sewed them on the quilt. On many I did a spiral from the center when I attached them to the quilt. My sewing machine was giving me problems so it looks pretty messy, however I really like the end result and my husband loves it.
