Join us as we dish…
First on the menu is Candy’s quilt, a color saturated feast for the eyes, based on a photo she took of the cobblestone walkway in front of Boston’s Paul Revere statue. Her inspiration came from the random pattern of leaves scattered over the stones. To create the leaves, Candy used fabric stiffener to give the shapes added crispness. She then dropped the leaves onto the quilt, securing them wherever they landed. Variegated yarn was couched between the colorful cobblestones for a moss-like look.
Brenda’s quilt brings us some liquid refreshment (her specialty 😉 Brenda and Harley’s home on Scenic Lake was host to a week of wedding festivities last summer when one of their sons got married. Every July 4th is cause for a great party at the lake but this photo was taken just two days before Kyle and Dana took their vows on July 6th, 2013. The quilt label on the back helps commemorate the day.
It’s no secret that I like my sugar, so I’m serving up some angel food sweetness. This little guy comes from a vintage photograph that I scanned and reprinted onto fabric. The image was fused to the background and then painted, stitched, and embellished. I did some block printing with fabric paint along the bottom, too, and that was fun 🙂
Another challenge completed 🙂
Check back again in two months for a look at where our next challenge theme, ‘The Silk Road’, takes us!
