English Paper Pieced Art!

I think I did it!
If you have been watching the stuff I've been doing recently you might remember this little piece.























I've now quilted it and attached it to a artists canvas.

I decided to leave all the funny edges as they were - in other works - I didn't square it up!  I really like the jagged edges.

















If you click on this photo you can see the quilting!




I've stitched it to the canvas now!





I'm loving it!
















I really like this - I might need to add a leaf or two but maybe not - I'll have a big long think about that!


Thank you so much Laura Kemshall  for showing me how to do this!









I'd really love to know what you think.

Love it!

Chris said...

Yes, intrigued is the word - paintstix? chiffon overlay? discharge paste?(!!!) You've ended up with a sophisticated finish Cx

Intriguing Sally. I'm amazed at the end result. The beginning did not lead me to pre think the end result. Well done. I like. I like very much. :)

I too wondered where this piece was going, I consider myself an art quilter but this process has captured my attention, could you please tell us more about the process or point us at the course or workshop where you dicovered this technique, I am amazed.Thanks for sharing, not sure if the bottom of the canvas is a little long,maybe a signature might help balance it..this may just be the photograph maybe OK in real life..cheers Pat Dwyer

This is so fabulous, Sally! I just watched Laura's lesson last night and then found this -- it's fabulous. I especially love that leafy part!
