Photo art quilts

I started bases for 3 new art quilts.
12 by 12 inches.
Incorporating photographs I have taken printed on silk.
I like the first 2 but the third one not so much.
It will be interesting to see if I can turn it into something.
I like the softness of the first two.
I really love the winter one.
Colors are great and will make a great addition to
the summer show Under Indiana Skies. 
 This one with the rock and post  is a good base too.
This one will be a challenge.
Maybe it needs to be a mixed media collage type quilt.
No time for work today.
My grandson is coming over to help me.
Need to switch out computer towers.
Put a new sewing chair together.
Put in a new smoke detector.
He is a electrician.
Change some high up light bulbs.
I bribed him with some tacos for lunch.
Plus 2 jars of Jalapeno sweet pickle relish
Have a great week-end.

Something to Crow about.

I can't decide if I like the clay addition to this quilt.
Using a hand carved stamp I made some clay forms
to use in conjunction with quilting.
We have some resident crows at Cedar Ridge Studio.
They like to hang out by the pond or in the woods.
Birds and trees are a constant theme in my art.
My thoughts this one got a little to cutesy.

Better late than never.

Started a new quilt today.
I made some clay forms last fall with bird
stamps I and carved.
Painted and stained these will add some interest to quilts.
I have a group of crows that entertain me all year.
They like to hang out by the pond and gossip with each other.
 I printed a fall scene onto silk fused it to the background.
Added some leaves.
Stamped some circles and dragonflies
Now to add some hand stitching.
I messed around  making a book cover for my Kindle.
It was hard not to pick up the Kindle and read.
Wednesday is a day of grocery shopping  and my
yearly mammo. Than to top off the day a massage.
Rough life.
We should have retirement when we are 45.
Could enjoy it more.

Sunset is finished.

As the day ends here in Indiana the sun is setting
and I am finished with the sunset art quilt.
I started working on my next project of combining
clay fabric and painting.
I never know where the muse will lead me
but at least it still calls.
I think I may keep this one.
It has turned out rather nicely.

White Barn Brown House

 These are the subject of my next art quilt.
I am thinking of combining inkjet printed images
with my usual format of fabrics painted.
A good project for Monday.
