‘Details, Details’

Details-Details-wholeDetails, Details! is my entry for Challenge 1, Season 3 of Project Quilting. I was inspired by the art deco details on a building downtown.

This quilt was created in Franklin, PA, USA.

I used raw edge fusible appliqué and paper piecing to create the square in a square block that is the feature of this quilt.

The quilt is 18 1/2" Square.


Quilter: Quilts by Lisa

SkyscrapersThe inspiration for my quilt is a long row of skyscrapers. Not a photo, just a mental image. I find that if I work from a photo I tend to try to copy it, rather than interpret it, so I just had an image in my head and started sketching. Then I drew something more structured on graph paper and started grabbing fabrics and cutting and sewing.
Usually inspiration just hits me out of the blue. This project was a challenge since I don’t normally make myself contemplate a certain thing and look for inspiration. It was rewarding to come up with something, though. This is actually my second attempt. My first involved a photo of stained glass windows and the result was not something I was happy with.
Thanks for offering this challenge which encouraged me to try something different. I really enjoyed it!

“Quilts Built by Imagination”

Quilts Built by ImaginationThe quilted table runner represents tall buildings with lots of windows. The place mat was made by cutting my leftover fabric scraps into squares of different sizes to represent the colorful buildings in Italy. The wavy lines are the roads in between the houses. Combining the elements in both photos, I used my imagination to create the quilts - "Quilts Built by Imagination". The quilts were created for Project Quilting. - Season Three - Challenge ONE

You can see the photos for my inspiration on Tuesday's post - Build With Your Imagination: and the beginning of my quilted project. Saturday's post shares more of the work in progress. I called it Building Your Vivid Imagination.

“Lighthouse in South Haven, MI”

Lighthouse in South Haven, MIMy inspiration was the lighthouse and the black steel bars that run the course of the pier. I spent summers in South Haven and the lighthouse is in all of my memories. I wanted this to be a bit more 3D, with shading and such but needed to get the project Lighthouse in South Haven,MIin in time! My favorite part is the shading I did on the pier. I used a brown color pencil to do this bit. This piece measures 10 X 16 inches. I plan to give it to my dad as a gift :)

All of the materials came from my stash in Elgin,IL.
