We also decided that we would all create the art work based on the inspiration from the same artist, Rick Loudermilk. His work is quite pleasing and I think adapts well to an art quilt.
Yesterday, I sewed strips of fabric (brown and white) together and today sandwiched the strips so I could machine quilt them.
I should have turned this pic as my strips will be vertical! I stitched in the ditch then did some free motion quilting....which I didn't like!
So I spent about 20 min. ripping out all the free motion work!
If you look close you can see the stitches or should I say 'holes'! I just sprayed with water and ironed the piece so all was well. Then I stitched the triangles above...I'll be doing more of those or at least outlining the tri's. I want to paint one of the sections in the triangles to match the brown in the other strips.
I'll also be adding some circles using some painted fusible or painted webbing in circles....I know..hard to picture what I want to do. Bob didn't get it either! But I have the pictures in my mind! Now to transfer to my quilt!
Nick's football game is tomorrow but rain is coming..actually, we had lots of rain today. Temp was warm (mid 60's) but heavy rain. I just came back from Kalee's walk and it's quite decent out now that the rain stopped. Just wet...but guess I better get used to it! They don't play football inside do they!
