Bryce Canyon Shadow Quilt Part 5 - FINAL

This is a continuation of 4 previous posts about the making of the Bryce Canyon Shadow quilt.

The next thing that I tackled was the picture of my husband.  I decided to add him in black and tones of gray so that it would stand out against the colored background. I used a similar technique that I used on a tree against a colored background a few years ago. The figure was put together using fusible web and a non-stick sheet. And of course, I forgot to take progress pictures!


After all the pieces were in place, I ironed them to fuse them together and let them cool.  Then I transferred the figure to the quilted background and fused it down.  The final step was to sew around all of the edges.


Sometimes, I straighten the edges on my art quilts, and sometimes I square it all up and add binding.  Since the paper fabric was pretty stiff, I knew that it would be hard to turn the edges to the back.  So, binding seemed to be the logical choice.  Black also seemed a natural choice.  Here it is all done!  It measures 31" W x 45" H.


I hope you like it.
