  • Re: Dunes and Ocean

    I hit the jack pot when I asked for guidance. I've learned so much from the comments. I want you all to know that I did add foam to the edge of the water with thread sketching. I pulled the water onto the sand just off the center line. I aged the mailbox with gray oil pastels. And I beefed up the...

    This is my 1st piece attempting to copy a photograph and using free motion stitching. I'd love critiques! Link to it here

  • Dunes and Ocean

    I'm new to art quilting and would love feedback. I want to learn more about perspective, shadowing, stitching in details... The actual size is about 14"x20". It depicts a mail box along the beach at Bird Island, Sunset Beach, NC. See what you think and thanks for looking. Hugs from Mary

  • Re: Finished wall art for a nursery-- first of a trio!

    What a beautiful piece! Just adorable. What was your inspiration? I also love your horse photo id? Just getting it finished is a major accomplishment regardless of time constraints. I think the frame idea was great. I too am new to quilt art. I love landscapes, realistic stuff. Not much on abstract though...

  • Re: My goddess series, and hello!

    Wow!! You have a natural talent for color and design. Like someone else said you could use inks or Micron pens which won't bleed on fabric to draw your faces, or hand embroidery them. When I applique small pieces I usually use something like Wonder Under and follow the manufactures directions. I...

    The effect I am trying for looks like silk screen on organza. I like the suggestion of misty fuse, I've never tried it. I also like the rust idea. I just bought the SAS on a whim. I think I'll go out and get the Misty fuse. Thanks for the input

    Thanks for the reply. I think I get what you mean. Is what you end up with - the backing fabric and the organza fused together with the misty fuse design melted in between? This is close. What I want to get to is the organza alone with the painted SAS2 (or misty fuse) design melted into the organza alone...

  • "Steam a Seam 2 and paintI

    I saw a beautiful vest in my local fabric shop that looked like it was appliqued or painted. I found out that the artist used Steam a Seam 2. As far as I could tell the Steam a Seam was painted, the ironed onto organza. Then the organza was laid over a base fabric, and then the design elements were embellished...
