I spent the day at a workshop with Susan Brubaker Knapp today. She brought many of her small art quilts with her – I loved all of them. We worked on a small quilt of a barn based on a photo that she took. First here is her quilt.
Here are some close-up photos of the wonderful thread sketching on the piece.
Mine doesn’t look like this wonderful quilt yet but I did get all the pieces cut and fused.
Instead of doing the thread work on my sewing machine, I think I will do it on the longarm. Susan does the thread sketching before she puts batting on the piece but I am not sure that will work out well – I may need to use batting.
Danielle got a lot of the thread sketching done on her piece. Here she is hard at work.
And here is what her barn looks like now.
She has a great start on a wonderful art quilt.
Tomorrow Susan will be doing a presentation and trunk show at guild. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of her quilts.
