I just finished this silk painting and will be putting it in a Surface Art Show in February. It is silk painting with bits of hand dyed silk applique for accents. Then I backed it with batting and free motion quilted it. I then stretched it onto a 16" X 16" wooden frame (like we did with the painted and quilted canvas) It looks very interesting and definitely looks like wall art when presented in that way.
I am through making felt hearts and moving onto other projects. I need to make something to wear into the cold when we go to Utah next week, but I also want to make something using the techniques we will be doing in sewing class (two birds with one stone theory). I have several ideas I just have to buckle down and sew.
