|One of the Shots after quilting.|
Face from Sisters, Sistah's, and Ancestors.
|This is the underside of the quilt Sisters, Sistah's, and Ancestors. This shows first steps in the Trapunto process.|
|This is a piece that I photoed then using a graphics package I have changed the colors behind the face.|
|I wanted to capture this photo in a different way so using my trusty graphics program I made changes, now to gather the fabrics and quilt it.|
Examples of dyed fabrics and bindings
This was drawn and painted on fabric as part one of a series made after doctor visits, done immediately following a GYN appointment.
Bad hair day, not anymore. I created the square behind the face, of paper, thread, crystals, glue and fabric. Later this mask required a backing and the cream fabric square felt just right. As I completed the appliquéd of face, hair, then necklace I realized it needed to be larger so I added the boarders. The quilting is the first overall machine quilting I completed after I got over the fear of machine quilting. Oh yes, I was nervous about it for years, finally taking the plunge after a session with Juanita Yeager. So it doesn't matter if you can draw, sew, paint, or fussy cut. There are things that have us stumped...until we gird up our loins and punch through or pop the bubble.
