    New Technique: Pastel over FMQ on Art Quilt

    Come see the effect of pastels over FMQ. I made this quilt in 2007. The flower petals were not quilted. The quilt looked very flat. The flower centers did not have the stamen, and other details. I added all of those and was surprised the most at what the addition of oil pastel to the FMQ did. After finishing, I let it air dry and then ironed with a white cloth over the top. They will not be washed, so that is not a concern. The picture below is just a sample. Thanks for looking.

    Very realistic with a 3-D effect. Using oil pastels makes your work just pop. Love the white you added for the light effect.

    I love your technique, it is beautiful. I have been wanting to try oil pastels on fabric, but so little time to try new things.

    How interesting as I am now in the process of quilting a poppy wall hanging from Edyta Sitar and I do have the seed pods in the centers and intend to sew black stamens in and put black seed beads on the ends. Barely got started yesterday, only got about six petals stitched down. I didn't totally like the color of green that I used on most of the buds, so I took crayon to them. Still have to heat blot them.
