I have decided to enter my Art Quilt “Looking Out” into the Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival. This is a fabulous festival of Quilts, there is always some amazing work to be drooled over!
Here is “Looking Out”. This piece was based on a photo I took at our local beach. I loved the combination of colours, the old man’s striped jumper and the posture, gazing out into the distance.
It is made from a wide range of different fabrics free motion quilted onto cotton batting with a plain cotton backing fabric. The various fabrics are layered and stitched to create the textures of the sand and waves. The figure was digitally printed onto white felt to create a pale outline to follow then thread painted by machine and appliqued onto the background. It measures 48.5 cm (19 in) x 63 cm (25in).
