Fused Art Quilts – for a good measure of procrastination

28 Mar

Yes, there has been quite a bit of procrastinating the week.  Taking my mind of the 150 years challenge quilt to do something quilty without the maths.  I was doing a paper collage with my daughter and it reminded me of the Bethan Ash book I reviewed here and the american version  of the same book many moons ago.

It got me thinking how fun it would be to do something entirely fused with lots of quilting.

Not sure this one works – but it was fun.  Perhaps more cohesion and overlapping with the fabric would be more effective.  This is a tiny 12″ by 12″ for practise and learning purposes.

Today I got busy with the back of the 150 years challenge quilt.  It seemed a shame after many hours spent making up the numbers 15o, not to use at least one of them somewhere.

    A fun quilt – love it ! Very interesting for my eye is the upper right corner, where there’s less quilting, because it contrasts with the areas with dense quilting.

    I like the way the fused bits float around!

    I’m always a little surprise at how many people like to see backs to quilts – I think its a great idea to bring the theme to the back because I know that people will like the surprise of seeing it there.
