The Wedding

A wonderful woman from Texas sent me her parent’s wedding photo to make it into an art quilt.  The following photos are showing it develop from just fabric blocking the colors to the painting process to bring this art alive.

I get nervous every time I do one of these pieces.  What if I pick the wrong color or mess up on the painting or quilting?  Do I have enough knowledge to fix my mistakes?  It’s funny how I make multiple errors on my art and seem to find away to fix it.  Plus, if I come to a point (which happens on many occasions in one piece) that I don’t know what to do or how to do it, I walk away and think about it.  I tend to do the sewing or painting in my head  first until I know it will work.

I don’t see my art as perfect by any means.  It is a growing part and a way for me to express my creativity.  I hope you enjoy seeing this and I would love to see/hear your comments!
