My husband, an incredible talented artist and writer, has begun a series of drawings and paintings he has titled Intentional Women.
I took one of them and decided to try my hand at an art quilt. It’s not finished yet, but here is what I’ve done so far.
I began by enlarging the print of the drawing and making templates. I cut pieces out of different fabrics to make appliques.
All the pieces are individual, including the ear
Here she is appliqued onto her background. I embroidered her eyelashes, eyebrows and mouth/nose details.
I chose a teal backing fabric with a sort of thatched pattern.
I have to create her mantra and then I can get to quilting it!
