Ghost flowers

If you read my blog on a regular base, you know that I am working on another big quilt. I completed the quilting in the last week of May and after that I spend lots of hours removing the quilting paper. Next step was to cut out the flowers and stitch these to the background. The background fabric is a whole cloth, which I dyed several years ago. The fabric for the ghost flowers is a pounded one. Another oldie :-). I have not yet measured this quilt exactly, but the size is roughly 40"x40". I am a member of the Free Spirit Artist group and my theme for this year is lines. This is another piece for that theme.

Whimsical landscape

A couple of blog posts ago I posted a picture of a small landscape quilt I made. I liked it, but I thought it deserved more. And this is how it looks now: 
I painted a canvas and stitched the quilt on it. It looked good, but it needed a bit more. So I added a tree. I am not a very good painter, but I think it looks okay :-)

Light and Dark

For Sky is the Limit this month's theme is light and dark. For me this means automatically black and white :-) and as I am exploring abstracts also a chance to create another abstract piece. This quilt is the result. The black and the white fabric are commercial ones, the grey is a pounded fabric. I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday

Bad Moon Rising

On May 26th I posted a picture of this quilt:
I like this one a lot so I decided to give it something extra. Here is how it looks now:

Still the same quilt, only now stitched onto a piece of background fabric and stretched around a canvas. I love it even more now :-)

This little landscape I made for Katie PM's class. I was aiming for an abstract landscape, but I think it is more a whimsical one. Except the fabric for the left tree trunk, all the fabrics are hand dyed. As usual the size is 12"x12". I am addicted to this size :-). I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.

line quilt

When you are quilting a big quilt, it really takes a long time before you can post progress on it :-). Finally the quilting has been done and the paper has been removed. I decided upon what I am going to applique on it. Now I have to get this design enlarged - either by Rapid Resizer or Fedex - before I can continue with it.
