A while back I showed you a color palette for a little art quilt I was making. Well, as sometimes happens, things didn’t go as I planned, and I scrapped the quilt. I was using the lovely batik fabrics to make a fusible appliqué representation of one of Alphonse Mucha’s posters. So, I decided to use the same design, but instead, I would produce the image in whole cloth, and then paint it. The exhibit in which it will be displayed is about painters so, why not paint it?
Today, I finished the initial quilting. This quilt measures about 19.7″ square or 50 centimeters. After I finish painting it, it will most likely go back on the machine for a little thread painting too. The image is from Mucha’s Dance from his “The Arts” series.
and a bit of detail
Update on Saturday, October 5. I was reminded this morning that I need to watermark my photos. I forget that people just take pictures that aren’t theirs and show them around on the internet. You may share my photos if there is a watermark. Otherwise, I would hope you would leave them where they are. Thanks!
