In the Studio~2019!

After a long break from the Studio at the end of the year, with the busyness of celebrating several holidays, birthdays, and family events, I finally find myself back in the studio on a cold, snowy winter’s day….but feeling cozy inside and ready to work! 🙂

Ready to create Art & do Business for a New Year, 2019!…

Choosing fabrics for the backing~~What will blend & complement the “fabric painting”?

I thought you might like to see the process of preparing to finish a design!

“Field at Toledo” is ready for a backing, layering the 3 layers~~top, batting, and backing, and pinning together the layers before the thread-painting and free-motion quilt stitching begins!

The Backing layer.
Layering the Art Quilt~Top, Batting, & Backing.                                                                                 
Pinning all 3 Layers together…
Beginning the threadpainting…  I began by stitching around larger objects in the middle area of the piece, and will work outward towards the sides. Then, more layers of threadpainting and free-motion quilt lines will be added for details and more textural interest!  Stay Tuned!   🙂

Happy New Year’s 2019!
