Finally getting back into blogging again with a short post as I’ve decided to enter the Blogger’s Quilt Festival this year with my latest Wheels and Windows piece. This is #9 and is 12″ square. It’s another layering of the windows of Belper Mill and the cogwheel image, manipulated with a Photoshop filter.
The piece is printed onto silk/cotton mix fabric and then machine quilted and faced. I think that this is one that I will mount onto a box canvas.
Wheels and Windows #9 is in the Art Quilts section of the Festival. Beginning tomorrow, Nov. 1, you can vote for your favorite quilt in this category (maybe mine?), as well as each of the other categories. You can vote for the Viewer’s Choice Award quilt at any time, voting for your three favorite quilts in the entire show. There are plenty of other individual categories too so why not grab a cup of coffee and spend a little time browsing. You can get direct to the site by clicking on the logo at the top of this post.
*** I’m also linking this up to Nina-Marie Sayre’s Off the Wall Friday, thanks for inviting me Nina-Marie ***
I have more news that I want to share with you but I’ve decided that shorter, more concise blog posts may be the way for me to go at the moment so I’ll be back very soon.
