Technical difficulties over … photos attached … Finally!

As you can see from my post yesterday, the technical difficulties have been fixed and now I can attach photos once again.  Don’t ask me what was wrong, because I don’t know.  I emailed Eric and he fixed it.  I thank my lucky stars for Eric and his magic fingers!

So, finally I can post some photos of the work I’ve been doing.  This is one of the pieces I am working and adding to.  I am still not sure what it is going to look like once it is done, but … that’s half the fun!  Adding and adding until it all comes together.  The stitching was the last thing I added before going on vacation.  Not sure where to go next, but I have a few ideas I will try.

So you know what you are looking at:  this is using my hand-dyed fabrics.  The wonky log cabin was made using small left overs from other projects, as is the strip in the center of the work.  Then, there are a couple of pieces fused on top.  It is heavily quilted using mostly straight lines every 1/8″ or so.

After than, the darker areas were created fusing hand-dyed cheese cloth (I used Misty Fuse).  And the two white vertical stripes are done by using masking tape to mask the area and then applying acrylic paint with a roller brush very gently.  The stitching was added at the end, using one of the skeins of thread I dyed with the fabrics, so it all blends together.  The yellow and green thread at the top is a commercial brand.

Here are a couple of details:

And another one of the stitching:

I will keep you posted as to progress.  What do you think?

Enjoy the beautiful day out there.  It’s supposed to go up to 27 degrees this afternoon.  I am off now and will go for a short walk.  I will blog later with some more photos of new finished work this time.

Take care, and keep quilting.
