Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Hi everyone, What a relief to able to log on to the QB. I haven't been able to since Thursday or Friday! First, thank you for you kind comments about my zendoodle wallhanging. I had no idea you could learn something like doodling, I have always said I don't have an original thought in my body, but I can usually figure out a way to copy something, but doodling like that just seemed beyond me. I am having so much fun in the evening with scrap paper and a pencil just doodling. Can't say I have really learned how, but feeling a little more confident.
As for the wallhanging, I have such a hard time with the term "art quilt". If this is an art quilt I have been making them almost since I started quilting in 2007. I just read one of the QB articles regarding embellishing and since I have been thinking the yellow gingham just did not fit (why did I do that!) I think I will find something to hide those three pieces. I will post in a day or so to let you know what I have decided on.
Hi Dotty, just rereading the posts and wanted to tell you I absolutely love your wallhanging! Did you plan the position of that moon or was it one of those really happy accidents!? Would you mind if I borrow your idea for a "birthstone" quilt? Thanks, you can PM me or I will watch this thread. Polly
Wendy, your tree is way cool. I really like the beading. I don't think you need to change a thing
And I'll try it on batiks, plus some Moda Marbles. Should be interesting!
The Earth without art is just "Eh".
@Suziehammond, my design is kids playing in the water from a fire hydrant. It's a childhood memory of mine. I will try and use a little bit as you and Jaciqltznok suggested. Also adding some other medium to it. Thanks much
Sistahdebbra, I have been trying to learn how to use Angelina Fiber also and am wondering if you may be pressing the fibers to long. I am finding that if I hit a thin layer of fibers very quickly - like a fast count of 1 2 3 - between the teflon pressing sheet it has much more shine. Also I am working with a small piece of fiber, a little smaller than my iron so I don't heat it too long. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks and good luck. Looking forward to seeing your project, sounds so cute.
