Blue moon is finished

At last Blue moon is finished. If I had only been working on this quilt, it would not have taken so long, but most of the time I am working on 3-5 quilts at the same time. This one started as a sunprint using acrylic paint in June. The moon needed some extra paintwork and finally the quilting. Here is the picture of the whole quilt, size 12"x24":


And here is a detail picture:

Composition in blue

For Sky is the limit the theme for August was blue(s).Well as this is my favorite color, it was not very difficult to find fabric for it :-). Finding a title is more difficult. For the moment I am calling it Composition in blue. Not a very creative title for this quilt, but that is all I can come up with for now :-).  Background is a mixture of dark blue pieces of fabric. For the lighter figures on top I looked into the field of symbols like earth goddess, stars - ever lasting life, water = birth of new life.


I am linking this post to Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday. Check out the link to see what others did this week.

Here are 2 small canvas boards which I completed recently. Different materials have been used on both of them. Size of each one is 6"x6" (15x15 cm) and they are for sale. Check out Galleriba. If you are not familiair with this site, grab a cup of coffee and browse around. Lots of small art for the wall is available there.

textured circles

A couple of months ago I made this circle quilt but I could not show it to you at that time. I had promised my friend Kelly that I would be one of her guest this month on the Fire blog. This week the different techniques have been posted on this blog so now I can show you the quilt here as well. Check out the separate posts of this week to see how I made the circles. Title is 'Textured Circles' and the size is 12"x24".

And as it is Friday I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's  Off the Wall Friday as well.

quilting

Lately I have been rather quiet, but that was because I had nothing to show you. I was working on bindings, sleeves, labels and that kind of stuff. In other words nothing interesting. But this week I started quilting on a new quilt. A big one! Size is roughly 40"x40" and it is a wholecloth. The fabric for it I dyed somewhere late autumn last year.
As you can see I use Golden paper. This way I know that at the end my design will still be the same size as when I started it :-)


After the quilting the paper has to be removed. This is rather a tedious job, but in combinationn with a good movie doable :-).
