Blogger's Quilt Festival - Art Quilt Entry

I have been so busy with life and machine quilting lately that I am sort of last minute putting a quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I haven't finished a ton of quilts this year (amazingly!) because I've been quilting for others...but I did get on an art quilt bent for a while there and made this incredibly meaningful airbrushed Susan Shie inspired art quilt.

This quilt has been so meaningful to me as it truly marked a turning point in my quilting philosophy.  Yes, I have a quilting philosophy!  LOL  My life is creatively driven so each endeavor I take on is monumental!  :)

I created this quilt with just a piece of bleached white muslin, and I first drew on it freehand with fabric markers.  Nothing fancy, just a Micron Pigma pen and this no-brand black Fabric marker from Jo Ann Fabrics.

This was the new to me fun experiment (that has me obsessed too) - AIRBRUSH!  I used Dye-na-Flow paints to airbrush in the color on my quilt.

Then no quilt is truly a quilt without the quilting.  This was quilted on my little domestic sewing machine.

The bloggers quilt festival is an awesome way for quilters to connect and share - I do hope you'll check it out!  ;)
