Quilting joins Inks and Paints-Udate

Update on the Painted Quilt. Being a crazy quilter I could not let a piece get by without adding some thread. These are the first two corners. Stay tuned for more updates. See my last post for a link to Sherry's site, so you can see her amazing works.

Quilting joins Inks and Paints

Greetings. I hope this post finds you all doing well.

I wanted to share with you one of my latest projects. Over on Facebook I met Sherry Harrison, she is an amazing quilter who has taken quilting to a new level. She is adding paints and inks to her whole cloth quilts with breathtaking results. Sherry being a smart business woman has made up kits so the rest of us can try her technique. You can see her website @ Sew Far Sew Good

Seeing her beautiful work, I had to try my hand at it and below is my piece at about the half way point. The main colors are added with Gelly Roll pens, the gold is a Sanford Gold Coat pen (from my scrapbooking supplies) each color is 3 layers thick, which seems to be where the ink starts to show its full color strength. I plan to change it up a bit with hand embroidery, beads and crystals. What else would you expect for a Crazy Quilter, right? So stay tuned to see the results.

Remember to click the picture to get up close and personal.

I know I have been lax in posting, but rest assured I have been quilting. I will have pictures to share with you soon of my Log Cabin quilt, and a Crown Royal quilt I am doing.

Have a Blessed day.

Log Cabin Quilt

Aw, my Log Cabin quilt.....the one I have been working on here and there for over a year. It always gets put aside when another project comes on the scene. Such as a commissioned Crown Royal quilt (in progress). Revamping curtains for a local business (in progress), just to name two.

I am at the finishing point of my Log Cabin quilt now, the binding is being sewn down (between other projects) and once that is done, it will go on our bed, well after I put it in a quilt show or two.

Oh I forgot, besides the binding this piece has to be attached to the center of the quilt, this is an important bit of information because...........................

Calculate as I might, I still managed to mess up on the number of blocks I needed, now mind you I now have left over blocks that I could have put in this spot, but like I said.......calculate as I might! The panel will go where the white space is on in the picture below. It will make for a unique quilt but I really did not have to do this.........don't tell anyone, ok, it will be our secret, we will just pretend it was by design.....right?

The size of the quilt is king, and the table it is hanging from is 14 feet long (my long arm table). This picture was taken just before I began quilting it, which took me 3 weeks (between projects).

Here is a close up of the quilting in the center of the quilt. The colors are a representation of the colors of the red hills around our area, with many layers of different colors and dressed in the greens of late spring. The center of a log cabin quilt is always suppose to be red for the heart of the home, here it also represents the color of the Indian Paintbrush flower, the state wild flower of Wyoming.

More to come on the Log Cabin quilt......do come back for the finished project.
