Back to art and quilt related content

This is a 6 inch quilted panel with satin stitched edge. It is painted with textile paints on white cotton fabric and then machine quilted. I made this for a holiday related project. I haven't decided if I am going to use it or not yet.

I just bought these the other day and am looking forward to experimenting and seeing what kind of things I can do with them.

Boy, there is nothing better than a new box of crayons is there.

    Thanks for visiting!!

  2. I am unsure of this blogging thing, kinda new. I do love your quilts! What exactley are the pencils? Can you use them on material?

  3. Thank you ^_^

    the aqua-stics are made for paper but I will definitely be trying them out on fabric. Probably paper too. I have used Caran D'ache water color crayons on fabric and they work nicely. Color them like crayons and then take a brush and water and turn your drawing into a painting. Then heat set with an iron for permanence.

    This brand is made slightly different, they contain wax so they can be used for encaustic methods of working. A whole new technique to explore. When I have played around with them I will post my findings.

  4. Your work is amazing!!!!

  8. Love your work. The artwork is amazing. How old were you when you first started?

  9. making art? or quilting?

    Making art has been life long.

    I made my first full size quilt when I was 24. I had no idea what I was doing other than having a good basic knowledge of sewing. Even that first quilt was not traditional. I am going to be 46 at the end of the month so I have been at this a few years.

  10. I love the quilted pomegranates Judy. I've been doing some paintings with pomegranates so was especially interested to see what you had done with them.

  11. I know what you mean about a new pack of pens or pencils! Have you tried Derwent Inktense? They are really good.
    The pomegranate design is such a great shape and the colours just bounce off each other perfectly.
    I love it!

  12. Oh it is just beautifull, the strong colours and the the 3D effect. I just love it.
