“Galactic Explosion” + FMQ……….

Equals the perfect combo for a stitching obsessed…….er….passionate textile artist like myself! “Negative space” just begging to be filled with pebbles, spirals, feathers, McTavishing, etc, etc, etc! **Warning**….photo heavy post before you! (To see the humble beginnings of this project….see here.) Now..on to the photos that give you a progress update…………..IMG_8687    And to give you an idea of the size of the pebbles, etc, at their smallest, I give you this ……….IMG_8686     This project is presenting some camera challenges for me. The yellow, with little in the way of contrast, doesn’t really translate very well without some serious photo shop tweaking!!! A few more images………IMG_8694 IMG_8696  This last ‘shot’ is pretty close to color accuracy. This one is going to require some serious squaring when I’m finished!!

The end is in sight…………….

  1. Oh, wow, what a project. When you place that dime for comparison…I’m thinking, what is Doreen thinking to take on a challenge like this?

    WOW…what an amazing job, my husband also commented on the wonderful work of the “lady who shows all the wilting” And asked does she do that herself or by computer…I told him it was all you, he is amazed by your talent…can’t wait to see the end…Hugs, Sandy

      Oh my!!!! My thanks to you….both…..for your sweet critique! Yup…hand guided, free motion quilting on my Sweet 16. It is finished…just needs squaring, binding, label and hanging pocket. The stitching was definitely an intense endeavor with such an immanent deadline!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by……….hugs…….
