Two small art quilts – 2017.02.19

This week I made two small art quilts.

In my last post, I showed 2 photos that I digitally altered and enhanced using a variety of apps on my iPad.  I picked my favorite from each group to make two small art quilts.  I printed each enhanced photo onto an 8.5 x 11 inch prepared fabric sheet, then I layered the printed photo on eco-felt and machine quilted it.  I trimmed the photo portion to 8 x 8 inches, and zigzag stitched around the edge.  Then I fused that onto a 10.5 x 10.5 inch background made from two layers of eco-felt fused together.

 

This is ‘Dotty Blossoms’.   You can see the process from original photo to finished art quilt below.

  1. These are great! I particularly like Dotty! What is this eco-felt you’re using?

      Eco-felt is really the same as acrylic felt, except it’s made from recycled plastic bottles instead of from plastic pellets. I buy mine at Fabricland.

    Do you mind sharing what apps you play with?

  3. Lovely work! Thanks for linking up with TGIFF @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!

    Very nice. Looks like playing with your IPad is creating lovely new art quilt inspiration.

  5. These are gorgeous, Terry. I’ve just started using felt and am curious as to where you source your eco felt.

  6. They are very interesting. I also would like information on iPad apps you find helpful in your work.

    I used several effects in several apps. I wish I could tell you which ones, but I totally lost track of what apps I used, and what effects – I was just having fun!
