Day of the Dead Art Show by Charwirfs
I have let my fussy cuts and art finally blend into mixed media art work. I am really pleased to be taking my quilting skills into the art world. I have entered my quilts into every art show I have ever entered, all free style and small, and they never pass the jury. Lately they are passing and I am so pleased to finally make the break through. New project is a Day of the Dead Art Show coming up in Oct./Nov. I will use fussy cuts from this busy print of working skeletons. They represent the lottery tickets that are sold in Mexico. Quite often the tickets represent art work. These are too fun to pass up. More photos as I go.
AUGUST 31: First tiny quilt completed. Usually I appliqué, turning the edges under. This time I am using raw-edge application, and more hand embroidery as quilting stitches, embellishment, and protection for the raw edge. I was surprised to notice that the extra stitching did not take much more time then turning the edges. The puppy/chick photo shows the usual method of appliqué I was using. I finished it and gifted it at Easter.
