Aimee's, but fine for me.)
Machine Quilted Art Quilt
Here is an art quilt that I made following a colored pencil drawing that Meredith drew. I gave it to her this past Saturday.
It's about 30"x20" and is raw edge applique/quilting. I used an enlarged copy of her design to transfer the pieces to fabric. I secured the pieces of Kona Cotton with Heat'n Bond, then stitched them down free-motion style. I stitched circles in the black border to quilt it.
She said she really liked it. I hope so.
I've been collecting the selvage of fabric (the side with the writing) for about a year now. I hope to do something really cool with them like they show at Karen Griska's site (the circle skirt dress in the right sidebar makes me drool!) In the meantime, here's a picture of my box of selvages. Yes, the white actually has the writing on it, in white.
These are the skeins of embroidery floss that I bought for my renewed embroidery passion.
When I gave Meredith her quilt, she gave me this picture, she colored with pencils. Good job, eh? She suggested that I make this into a quilt. We shall see!
