Project Description

What are you most proud of? the way the fabric lent itslef to the look of a painting What advice would you give someone starting this project? spend time drawing til you get the right picture you want then make a pattern from there. After that let the fabric create what you want. I used lots of silk threads in this piece.

What you will need

This is one of the most amazing things I've seen done with fabric. It's a work of art! It's gorgeous. I can hardly believe it's a quilt and not a painting! Even my husband said "oh wow"!
Jennifer June answered:
when a husband says "Oh Wow" then I know I did good, hahahah
LAChurch asked:
Absolutely amazing! It really looks like a picture! I have always wanted to attempt to make a quilt that resembles a picture, and other tips you may have would greatly appreciated. :)
Jennifer June answered:
I love 19th century art, it lends itself well to wonderful fabrics and colors. Look for soft muted colors. I went to the decorator shops to find drapery fabric, dupioni silks,etc. They have great remnnats too.
