This photo is the one I used for inspiration for my artwork.
My drawing done with water colour pencils.
This first sample is done using cut back applique. There are 6 layers of fabrics including sheers and net along with marbled fabric. The design is drawn onto the backing fabric and stitched using a narrow zigzag stitch. Then it is cut to reveal different fabrics in the different sections of the design. Quite a simple technique which gives great results!
I used the same artwork for the second sample but this time produced a foam stamp from the drawing. I practised first by stamping onto black card and then onto fabric, using metallic fabric paints.
This sample is supposed to be an example of Kantha Quilting but I am not sure that it really should be quilted in squares like this. However I do like the overall effect - I have used a metallic thread for the quilting and that gives a jewel like effect.
I actually missed the class that went with these samples so I was not quite as confident with them as I could have been.
