Love in the Afternoon is up for sale, $500, and will be available for the next two weeks, until October 10, 2018.
Love in the Afternoon was created by handpainting cotton fabric with acrylic and fabric paints. I like to spray fabric with water and use sponge brushes to apply paint, along with tipped paint bottles to give texture and dimension to the fabric.
After the painted sheets dried, I heat set them to prepare for rotary cutting into strips of different lengths and widths. I then machine strip pieced the lengths into various sized blocks.
To form the quilt top, I treated the blocks as puzzle pieces and filled in negative spaces with strips to complete the puzzle. The quilt top was then machine pieced and machine quilted. Embellishments include applique with machine emboridery, beads, sequins and acrylic paints.
Love in the Afternoon measures 45" x 45"
