I’ve been so busy working on “Windblown” that I haven’t said much about “Embrace 1” which is the other quilt I just finished. It is a interpretation of three woodblock prints that I did during college. I’ve always liked the sketch-like quality of the image, and I wanted to try to capture the same feeling in fabric.
I started with a black and white version last October. In November I decided to play with colors that I wouldn’t normally use like lime green, lemon yellow, and orange. From there I decided to play with some free motion quilting. It’s been a fun project to work on — another chance to stretch and grow. If you’re interested in reading and viewing the process, you can follow the posts in the Embrace category.
