Quilted pictures

Post by Sue »

Well I have spent the day sewing. I have done my first quilted picture based on a book I got for my birthday. The flower at the front is an appliqué copy of the anenome I did in watercolour. I really enjoyed doing this. I may make it into a cushion cover

It's supposed to be an abstract garden

I have a friend, Georgie, who has just had an exhibition of stitched drawings at the Wellcome Institute. Have a look at this LINK.

They are great Stanley. I shall aspire to doing something like that. I only used scraps of material that I had to try out the technique but I see another cushion cover being made!
I now know some of he pitfalls. I need a few more trial runs before I splash out on buying material specially.
