Art Trumps Work


This Morning, Art Trumps Work!

It’s been way too long since I posted anything here. For that matter it’s been way too long since I completed a project! I’ve been very busy with “real life” work since the first of the year which I suppose is a good thing, lol.

A couple of months ago our little quilt art group decided to try our hand at a still life. Here’s what I came up with. I started with an arrangement of veggies from the refrigerator and took several pictures. This really helped me decide on which composition I liked the best.

I then printed the photo, enlarged it to the size I wanted and made some templates.have been in the look, don’t touch category for a long time. I selected a simple background, something with a grainy look for the cutting board and added some fusible web to the fabrics.

Then came the fun part of selecting my fabrics. For the very first time I decided to use some of my hand dyed fabric for the veggies. Believe me this was a huge step – those hand dyes

Then it was a matter of cutting, previewing, positioning and finally bonding. A simple quilting treatment added some definition and interest.

 

Here’s the (almost) finished journal quilt. (the edges need to be bound or ?)

Remember to “Eat Your Veggies”
