close-up

This quilt was painted  with Tsukineko Inks in a class with Patt Blair in April, 2002, at the Empty Spools Seminar in Asilomar, California.

I always knew I wanted to make a quilt from this picture and when Patt told us we could use one of our own photographs for this class, I knew right away that it was going to be this one of my grandson Mackie with Bailey sitting on the front of our pontoon boat.

Work in progress

Most of the painting of this quilt was done in class. I did darken the water quite a bit after getting home before free motion quilting it.

I used a variety of thread for the quilting: a variegated YLI Variations for Bailey, the dog, several WonderFil Rayons and Invisafil for Mackie and Valdani Hand-Overdyed for the water.

More info and photos HERE where I documented this quilt in June, 2012.

Thanks for coming over.
