The theme for this quarter is: A Walk In The Park. I knew right away that I would try again to create a piece in a landscape. I want to achieve a nitch in landscape work, but don't want to devote all my stitching time to the style.
The piece is not exactly an Art Quilt. I also knew when I thought about how I would approach the subject that I wanted it to embellish the back of a jacket I have. I have given some thought to embellishing the front of the jacket on the lapels and pockets. It's still in the "thinking about it" stage.
I drew the design, pieced fabric to it, did a little machine stitching , then did hand stitching and embroidery. I added more birds to the ones on the sky fabric with a Sharpie, then faced the entire piece and stitched it to the back of the jacket. Look closely and you may see a kitty peeking from behind the brush.
This is how the piece looks on the back of the jacket. I just could not get a good picture of the completed piece.
There is a story to the picture I created. You can read it on the Endeavourer Blog.
Please enjoy the pieces done by the other members. It's always fun to see how everyone depicts the theme.
Grateful: Today I am grateful that I was invited to joint the group. I have some great sewing skills. Quilting is new for me and Art Quilts are a wonder. I definitely had focus when stitching this piece and I am anxious to find out what the next Challenge Theme will be.
