Stepping out of the box of traditional quilting is all about imagination. ” Oh Baby” is made from 96% recycled items. I have a very large stash of lots of things. the nest was formed from old drapery fabric, actually I pulled a mass of threads out of this fabric. I lov to unravel , Mother is covered with thread painting, The eggs are alabaster shells. The feathers came from a down pillow.
She is layered with jean backing, batting, and cotton fabrics, embroidery and metallic threads. I used several techniques including different two threads in one needle for quilting. I really had no plan I just dropped the feed dogs and let my machine take off. Imagination is is the power of forming a mental image of an item that has not yet been experienced. The power to create is awesome.
Thank YOU for considering my art quilt, Good luck to everyone:)
