Suddenly there I was gathering silks in colors I never use, piecing and quilting. All this so that I could paint it. Here it is painted. (above)
Here is the back after the quilting. I rolled paint onto the silk of the left and front side to create depth and texture and painted the flowers and hearts with acrylic, from WalMart, Stewart Gill Byzantium from Joggles for some glitz that does not show. then I stitched it up to form a soft sculpture. OK, OK it's a pillow but if you call it that it is functional and the silk does not stand up to wear and tear.
I really like it. Now I hope when Deanie and I start on our Kemshall quest in January that my carpal tunnel of right hand is healed and my quilting improves.
