I quilted this modern quilt recently for Nancy M, and LOVE the result, using numbers and a specific date. Zoom in for a closer look at the detail. Such a great idea for a special date! The design is called Numbers2 by Laurie Thomas, www.itsaquiltthing.com .
The OCQG December Challenge this year was based on http://nationaldaycalendar.com. For fun, you might like to look up your National Day And, imagine a quilt that you would make!
My day is “National Chocolate Mint Day”. This is my entry into the challenge – a cacao plant botanical print… The brown background is chocolate, the branches are mint colored, and the theme is the Cacao Plant. The quilt is based on an original botanical print by Emma Lofstrom, Swedish Illustrator/Artist (http://www.emmalofstrom.se).
My most recent little quilt – made for the January 12×12 Art Group Green Challenge . Yes! Every bit of this quilt is green – green fabrics (very light to very dark), green fabric marker, and green Sulky Holoshimmer thread (wings). The leaves were quilted from the back side, using the printed fabric as a guide.
Made this quilt based on the Happy Villages technique by Karen Eckmeier – www.quilted-lizard.com
Techniques used: Raw edge pieces- glue basted, black tulle over all, then outline stitched by machine. Pumpkins, ghosts and cats were fussy cut from a purchased Halloween fabric.
This video was created by my talented husband. Hope that your enjoy it.
My daughter Gail makes intricate paper cut pieces of artwork. Naturally, my eye immediately thinks about converting them into quilt art and we are sure to collaborate on many projects in the future. One new project is in process, to be displayed at the next OCQG Quilt Show, April 2012. You will have to come to the show (or my house) to see it!
I encourage you to take a look at her work and to imagine yourself cutting those teeny-tiny little pieces – just imagine! (I’ll stick with big hunks’o’fabric.)
How about you? What non-quilt sources inspire your creativity?
