I saw some amazing beaded art quilts on The Quilt Show yesterday and I suddenly knew what I had to do with the blue art quilt I've been working on.
This is where it is now. All the other pictures of it I have posted have shown it vertical, but I think I'm going to be working on it horizontal instead. If this was a class project for Stupendous Stitches at Craftsy, it would be time to start hand stitching on it and that is what I thought I was doing when I started it. But I've decided to fuse some appliques onto it instead, and then embroider and bead it.
So far I've only picked out some of the fabrics that I'll use and I've put fusible on the back of them.
I need to watch the last section of the class on non-traditional feathers and then work the plume. I'm not sure I left enough room for it, but I'm going to try to get it in.
Meanwhile I'm also working my way through a class at Quilt University, also on-line, for Electric Quilt. I bought the program a while ago but have never done much with it. I am ready to start Lesson 3 or 4 and I already know more about the program than I did just doing the lessons that came with it.
I don't know if I'll actually use it to design quilts, because right now I seem to want to do things improvisationally. But there are things you just can't do that way.
No matter what, I am having fun.
Take care all.
