My photo is a bit blurry, but you can see that I am remaking my Hairy Leg quilt again. The first one met a tragic end as inky pens and quilt tops do not mix well. Trust me on that fact!
The history of this quilt is a collaborative effort between dear friend, Lori Seavey-Christian and myself during one of our “Lori & Carla’s Creative Adventure Weeks.” Way back in the last decade, I decided to teach Lori how to make a quilt. We decided on a shoe quilt and we both made our matching quilt.
I later quilted Lori’s quilt and decided to have some fun by quilting in legs, hair, tattoo, etc. since I knew Lori would love it. Here is my Hairy Leg quilting on Lori’s quilt:
We had lots of fun and laughter making our quilts. For the last 5 or 6 years, I have been wanting to make a replacement quilt, so I finally got on the ball and made my own version. Now I need to decide on a final border. I am leaning towards the yellow-gold fabric.
Another project is another pigment quilt, this one will feature my Tropical Leaf pattern (available from Digitech patterns):
Next step is to paint the quilt with pigment powdered ink that I bought last year. I was inspired after seeing a stunning black quilt that Sherry Rogers-Harrison had made and shown on Facebook. I decided to try out her brand of fabric medium, too, since I have tried every other brand on the market. Sherry does amazing work and is a nice person, too. I have forgiven Sherry for teasing me by once asking if “my quilts whisper to me….” LOL!!
I have done a few more quilts to show you in a later post. keep watching! Hugs, Carla
