Flowers in the Forest

September 13, 2016

 

I just finished this piece for the Mountain Art Quilters challenge called Into the Woods.  It is composed of 156 "units" (12 x 13) and a dark strip along the bottom.  It's so much fun to work with values to create an impression of light shining through the quilt.  

I stenciled impressionistic flowers across the bottom with paint sticks, but the value was too dark.  So, after quilting them, I grabbed a jar of pearl Luminaire paint and highlighted each flower.

 

Then I did more quilting over the body of the piece and faced all the edges.  My husband says it needs something more on the top, but I call it "done"!
