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”

  • Making small quilt ‘sandwiches’ with dyed fabric

     

    Sew through the paper to get an outline and pull the paper off

    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!
