Sunset Quilting

 The quilting is finished.
 Up close, you really get the details of the block printing and stitching.  I am pleased with the luminous quality of the iridescent fabric paint I used for the printing (Jacquard Lumiere - gold).
 I find I am really fascinated by the effect of the printing - not just for this piece, but for all the pieces in this series.  I am intrigued by the way the underlying fabric and stitching continues to show through, yet is completely transformed by the printing layer.  I am very inspired to continue my explorations with this series.

I have run out of the block printing plate material I use, so I have ordered more.  I have experimented with a lot of different products, but my current favorite comes from Nasco, a school supply company.  Click here to see what I ordered.  This recycled, latex free product comes in many sizes, but this time, I have ordered it in a 12 x 18" sheets. 

Next, I will trim and bind this piece.

I think this is my favourite piece (along with the birdie in the trees.)
What a perfect piece!! The shimmering fabric paint really makes this piece sparkle. Love it, love it, love it.
