Here are two more of my miniature quilts - they are such fun to make. I am thinking about teaching a class on learningfa or here on my blog. They are much faster to make than the larger wall hangings. The first one is mainly thread painting with appliqued fence. I really enjoyed
doing this one. The second is 'view from a cave' and I used hand dyed fabric for the ocean, a lovely brown and black batik for the rocks and then I painted the foam with acrylic craft paint mixed with textile medium. I have to cover the back and sew on the sleeve for the
cave and will take it with all the others to the retreat this weekend and will spend the time finishing up some bindings and sewing the 'sleeves' down on all the miniatures.
I am really looking forward to the retreat this weekend and will post some pictures when I get home.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Shirley
