I've had some requests to post pictures of the quilt that didn't make it into the Quilts=Art=Quilts show. So here it is! The star is three dimensional, as you can see from the bottom photo. It's made from a base of black felt with scraps of cotton, silk, and wool and silk roving machine felted into the surface. The star is mounted on a circular quilt which has been heavily quilted. And even though it didn't make the cut for this show, maybe there's hope in another one!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
