Fused Art Quilt

It’s the new year, so why not challenge myself to something I’ve never done before?

We were set a challenge at the local quilt group I attend, taking inspiration from a photograph or picture chosen by another member we had to create a quilt top, A4 size, to pass onto the next person, who then takes inspiration from only the quilt top previous in line, creating a ‘Chinese whisper’ effect when they create their own piece.  Each member submitted their own picture, none of which we see apart from the one given to us at the start of this challenge.  It’s going to be fun seeing how the theme developed at the end of six months.  Looking for tips from Melody Johnson and her fibremania blog, this quilt top was totally constructed by fusing fabric, I added the stitching today.  The process was exciting and something I will definitely try again.

Happy new year.

If you are looking for more inspiration head over to Nina’s Off The Wall Friday where I will be linking this post:)

    Is it a painting, picture or quilt. WOW. Having seen the inspiration picture I am really amazed how very different and how very connected at the same time your piece is! It would be fun if we could see the progress and the end the whole Chinese whispers effect! I think it would be great if you showed this technique in a tutorial? Look forward to seeing more! Beautiful and technically different
    piece indeed!
