Small Quilt Made From Left Overs...

Beginning this fall, there is to be a three year tour of the featured SAQA artists in Lark Publications new book "Art Quilt Portfolio People and Portraits."  A binder filled with sample quilts will help the viewer understand the artists' process and also have an opportunity to touch the sample quilts.  (Touching the exhibition quilts is a no-no!)

This sweet little piece was made from leftovers.  I keep a basket of scraps under my sewing table.

My process:

1.  Draw simple face; transfer to fusible web
2.  Iron fusible web to selected fabrics
3.  Cut out pieces


4.  Assemble pieces
5.  Iron to background
6.  Stitch appliqué; free motion quilting


7.  Make binding
8.  Stitch on binding
9.  Embellish
