Meditation, Art Quilt--WIP

Meditation, Art Quilt, 20" x 20"
© 2010 Fannie Narte

This is another of several projects I'm working on. The following digital quilt image from a previous post inspired me to create "Meditation."

The original hand painted silk, which was used in the above digital image, was rotated a quarter turn to the left and black paint was added. It was placed on another piece of hand painted silk and more color was added to both pieces of silk to unify the project. Hand stitching with black thread was added to secure both pieces of fabric.

The first image in this post shows what the piece looks like so far. Over ten hours of machine stipple quilting so far, and I'm only half done. I still want to add more hand stitching and some Swarovski crystal beads. I'll probably mount this to a canvas.

Taking a trip down south to attend a friend's wedding. Have a great weekend!
