I use my sketches and drawings in different ways in my quilts. Here I use sketches of my hands to add hands to the quilt “Huxi – Exhale”
I sew through the paper and then pull it off. I add details afterwards.
I then sew everything down to the quilted background. Usually I use a heavy duty jeans needle to get through all the layers and previous stitching.
Finished piece “Huxi-Exhale”
Often I add more stitching after the figure is sewed on.
I call it the lost picture technique! Next time another technique!
