    Art Quilting Project

    I took a Craftsy.com class to learn "Art Quilting: Pictorial Techniques". Here are the results. It was fun, but wouldn't use the glue stick method again. MESSY stuff! lol I switched to simple applique after the first few flower petals.

    Very pretty! I loved the glue stick method, I used it on a large landscape wall hanging.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Really, really pretty. I've considered the art quilt class. Do you feel like you've learned something beyond basic applique that you can now take to design your own art quilt pieces?

    Congratulations! It looks very beautiful.

    I don't care for the glue stick either. However, I find working with washable Elmer's school glue to be just my cup of tea. Have you tried that?

    I really like it. I too don't like the glue method. The only way I can make it stick is by ironing it. I still like lite fusible web.

    I definitely learned a lot about the art quilting process and am ready to try my skills on another project as soon as I get this floral log cabin quilt out of the way.
