I was asked to participate in a special exhibit entitled "Edges" at the Long Beach International Quilt Festival . My piece is titled "Edge of the Woods" and is a bit of a departure as far as technique. I had decided I wanted to do a picture within a picture of woods and decided to use a technique I learned of from Laura and Linda Kemshall's book "The Painted Quilt". I had tried this technique on a much smaller scale in a piece I made for my on line group http://twelveby12.blogspot.com/search/label/Water, and wanted to give it another shot. I stitched the fabric sandwich first, then went back in with acrylic paint and painted everything. It is a lot more challenging with a larger piece like this. This is definitely not my method of choice, but it was fun to stretch myself.
