I've done it!
After at least a year Curvy Ladies is finally finished.
It has been a long process working on the design,seeing the quilt
slowly emerging from concept to completion.
I know that the idea of this quilt came when Catwalk with the tiny models was finished.
You can see that quilt at my Gallery.
I thought....Curvy ladies are so much more natural.
So...here it is!
The quilt is 37 x 46,5 inches, 94 x 118 cm.
I've used both regular quilt fabrics and fabrics that I printed and painted myself.
It's quilted on the mashine and with cotton batting in between the layers.
This was a scary part of the work......
I dripped and poured paint over the top and hoped that it would succeed.
The shadows behind the women are sewn with a dark thread
and with tiny, tiny movements all over the surface.
The quilting patterns are leaves pendant along a winding stem
and some parts are quilted in a tightly lined pattern.
This to achieve a contrast and a more exciting surface of the quilt.
This woman is in a position to show that she is a person of courage and self-esteem.
I like that!
This is the back of the quilt and a detail of the quilting.
Well....I hope you've enjoyed looking at my latest quilt!
