And this I received with ALQS2 made byPippa (Hippopip):
As you can see, both lovely pieces. So if you have the time and if you love artquilts, contact Kate that you want to play along.
Today's picture is the G. For this I used grungeboard. This is a grey pliable synthetic material which can be inked, painted and stitched. And probably all kind of other techniques as well. The grungeboard I have is inprinted with little figures. After I cut out the shape of the G, I painted it with different colors of acrylic paint from Golden. When it was dry I stitched it to the background. It was the first time that I used grungeboard, but I guess I will be using it more often in the future. Because of it's pliable nature it can be used for many different purposes.
Don't pay attention to the little white hairs on the black fabric. My cats love to sleep on fabric.
The red fabric needs some more stamping with gold or silver, but I quite like the brown with green one.
For the F I cut the shape out of Bondaweb and fused this to the fabric. The next step was to put the red foil over it, cover it with parchment paper and iron this. After it had cooled down I carefully pulled the foil away from the fabric and the shape of the F remained. Some stitching around the shape was added to finish it.
The vase is made from folded fabric. After folding I ironed it onto some Bondaweb. I did the quilting along the lines so that I would not flatten the texture.
The pink flower was made from several layers of embossed felt and a button as centre. Stems are made from rolled tubes of fabric.
For these flowers I used different techniques. The yellow one on the right is made from zapped organza. The purple one from 2 layers of fused batik. To get depth part of the petals is pushed up away from the background. The brown one is made from several layers of fused fabric. The edges are cut to give it a more frayed look. And the yellow/red one is made from different layers of hand dyed scrim. Buttons or beads are used for the centres. On purpose some of the flowers are 'outside' the rectangular of the quilt.
