Welcome to all those who clicked over from the Blogger's Quilt Festival. As usual, Amy has done a great job organizing so if you haven't checked it out yet, please do.
For those who are new here, I'm Shannon (from Moore OK) and I mostly make art quilts, but also love to make bags and attempt to make clothes. I hope you'll consider stopping by again sometime.
This is my entry for the mini-quilt category, and I made it as a donation for the annual SAQA auction. For more information about this quilt, you can check out my previous post about it.
After working out my design (in this case using Adobe Illustrator) I painted white polyester fabric with latex house paint in blue-grey-purple and then quilted. The silhouette of the person is cut out of adhesive foil which I used as a stencil for shading in the silhouette with Shiva paintsticks.
Finally I added more paint to the window frames and then cut out the windows. My goal was for the pieces to evoke thoughtfulness and reflection. Maybe hopefulness or calm, or even anxiety or sadness.
This one was actually one of three I made at the same time, here you can see them all together; each just a bit different.
