Halloween Pillow Quilt
This is the time of year when I begin stitching a bit more. As much as I love to paint, I always come back to embroidery & embellishments. The difference of the two for me is in the imagination process. When I paint, especially without collage elements, the blank canvas just comes together from what I imagine and what inspires me. It might be sorta the same for fabric collages, but when you have a visual of all the fabrics and embellishments in front of you, it makes it alot easier for my creativity to flow. It's like a fabric puzzle waiting to be put together!
5.25" X 6.5" on fabric
I used an altered art print of my original painting. Completely hand-stitched and created using fabrics, felts, sequins, beads, & buttons. Also decorated with dangling jingle bells and a fiber hanger.
I call it a pillow quilt because it has been lightly stuffed with polyfil.
Happy Friday & Creative Blessings,
