Lonely ... Snow Angel from Life as a Quilter -- Julia Graber

Lonely -- 8"X10"
...but wait. I see a snow angel.

The original picture of my sister Coleen looking at a snow angel that she made.

I tweaked it with a photo app and printed it on fabric. Then I layered it with batting and the backing and quilted lines +/- 1/8” apart.

To enhance the figure, I stitched between those 1/8” lines.

This is the back, a reject from my first printing. Notice the “ghost “ figure on the right which is the extra stitching of the figure on the front.

I'm part of the group Southern Fiber Artists. Within that group there are ten of us Sharing Fiber Art. We each make an 8"x10" piece of art for each person in the Shared Fiber Art group. So, I've been making and receiving pieces of fiber art.  Here are some of my finished works that I need to pass out to fellow artists.

Peacock Quilt -- Not Even Solomon from Life as a Quilter -- Julia Graber

When my sister Sheila saw my peacock Palatial Plumage she fell in love with it and wondered if I could make one for her. She helped me with so much of my domestic work that I decided to make her one. She helped choose the fabric for the background and has a guest room where she wants to display it. In the mean time, I hope it can do some traveling.
Not Even Solomon
22" X 34"

Fiber: Commercial cotton fabrics with an assortment of Superior Threads.

Merry Halloweenie? from Kit Lang, Fiber Art

If you follow me on in IG or FB, you've seen these already, but I promised I'd do a process post, so here it is!

A couple/three years back I was doing a commission for a collector and and we were testing backgrounds for a large piece. I did a bunch of 5 x 7 inch tests (mostly pinky sunset/sunrises), photographed them and forwarded them to the collector. He chose the one he wanted, and we went from there. 

(The photo above is my initial sketch, a headless deer, and fabric glue EVERYWHERE. lol I posted ...

Reaching for the Light II and III from Life as a Quilter -- Julia Graber

I finished some more pieces in the series "Reaching for the Light" for my Southern Artist friends. These measure 8"X10" and are made of the same fabric although the lighting looks different.

This one especially reminds me of a cold windy day.
