Q - Quilting -
This is the first time I have tried quilting, and my thanks go to Quilting Arts magazine for instructions.
I did not use batting (the book is getting quite thick after all), but did use a stabilizer which was recommended in the magazine. All the stitching was done by hand, and the felt and letter appliqued on.
Having now finished this piece, there may be more art quilts in my future!
R is for ribbons.
I used a variety of colours on the letter to create this collage of ribbon work, using couching to attach the ribbons. I am quite pleased with the result. I have seen large pieces using similar techniques and have loved the effect. Perhaps a large scale ribbon piece will also be in my future.
S - Stamping on Fabric
I watched this technique done in India using vibrant colours and creating beautiful fabrics.
Here I used a hand stamp with 2 colours of acrylic paint. Looks like it was made that way I think.

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
