This quilt was way into the process, and I was having a lot of physical challenges that year as well as my beloved Bernina shut down totally because she needed to go to the hospital for a mother board replacement.
So on this year's quilt I experimented with inktense pencils on fabric. I took a piece of white fabric, sketched out my image and then dampened it.
It bled in a charming way. Then I inked in the words with pens.
Each year's quilt is approached differently. One year I might document something we experienced, another I try new techniques, and others I might just have fun. Some of the quilts are quite tiny, most are larger, one is twin sized.
I hope to show you a few of them over the next few days. See another V-Day quilt In This Post Right Here!
All of them are made with love and appreciation for my relationship with Drew. In any good relationship it feels like you just met, while also feeling like you've been together forever.
This year's quilt is in the design phase and might be a mix of my poetry, a collage and use some technique I want to explore. Stay tuned for more. ( if you want to see them all in person and hear about working in a series with funny stories, I will come share them with your group)
For now, share the love
