Today is reveal day on the Art Quilts Around the World blog. My quilt is called "I was hooked". I used Paintstiks on deep purple hand dyed fabric to create the moon over water background.
Other Supplies: Hand painted fabrics made with Setacolor, fish hooks & fishing line
I drew a fish shape on freezer paper to use as a template. This allowed me a window to view the fabric through until I found the right selection of color. I backed the fish with a heavy stabilizer and some batting. I machine quilted the scales and fins of the fish on my sewing machine (use a hoop to keep the fabric flat)
I then added beads before apppliqueing the fish in place. The fish is stuffed with a few more layers of batting to give it a fishy shape.
