On Sunday, Michael and I decided to have a day at home to relax, so immediately my mind went to quilting!!!! My local guild has recently set a challenge called “Am I Blue”. The quilt is to have something to do with the word BLUE!!!
My idea for this quilt came from a British Comedy that my husband and I love to watch….”As Time Goes By”. There is a print on the wall by their front door that has always grabbed my imagination and I have decided to turn it into my “Blue” quilt.
Here are a few sneak peaks of what I have done so far……
I have never made a collaged background before and it was lots of fun to do. I started with a VERY lightweight fusible interfacing and began placing odd shapes of fabric on top. When I was happy with the look, I ironed them in place and then thread-worked over the top. I tried a bit of stenciling as well, but some of the fabric really soaked up the paint. I may add additional fabrics over the top of this area and re-do it.
Now to add a focus to the front…..can you figure out what it will be….
