The theme for this month's landscape was line. First we were asked to make marks with different types of implements and then using our source material make a collage using torn up magazines. To be honest none of this appealed to me and so I have left it all right to the last minute.
I don't have very much fabric but I did buy the one on the left and the middle one when I was at The Bramble Patch. For the last two journal quilts it was suggested that we use rusted material and I tried to master the technique but was totally unsuccessful. However a friend gave me some rusted fabric (thanks Annie) shown here on the right.
I dyed the three fabric with a green dye and it is actually darker than this photo shows.
I also dyed some of the fabric that I had previously painted and dyed at the Make It Personal class. I tore the fabrics into strips and laid them on top of the cotton fabric and wadding.
I ironed a piece of bondaweb on and then ironed the fabric strips on although that wasn't totally successful. So I added some pins.
I machined the whole thing.
It probably needs some hand stitching and it does need a focal point but I will come back to it later in the year. Sometimes you have to walk away from something for a while! I still haven't decided how to edge the quilts so have left it rough at the moment.
This is what it would look like if I trimmed the edges. Each quilt is A4 (letter) size.
Here's the quilt with the collage on the right.
Thanks for stopping by.
