Lesson, Quilting

Stained glass window…

This quilt was made after a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

I took a photo of a 13th century stained glass window… it was small, about 15" square and I wondered if I could  re-create it as a quilt.

I enlarged my photo…

Made a drawing of the original by putting the photo on the light box and tracing it.

The drawing was placed on the light box and then the imaged traced onto fabric…

I colored it with a black pigma pen and colored tsukineko pigment ink pens.

I cut out each individual piece and placed it on black fabric.

Voila, a stained glass window.

I quilted it with YLI smoke mono filament thread. (Actually it was appliqued and quilted at the same time)

I stitched the pieces down with a small invisible  stitch….

A small zig zag. 1.4 stitch width, 1.4 stitch length. size 60/8 "sharp" needle and 50 weight black masterpiece thread in the bobbin.

Cotton batting, (warm and natural)

    Morning Pam, when you were leaving Bangkok you said you were taking 6 months leave & I wandered if this was from BLOGGING too?????. Much to my delight I still can log on & learn from you. I have a few crises in my family at present which means NO time for quilting but I still find time for myself each morning over breakfast to visit a couple of my favourite sites. Your lesson this morning was so motivating & has my mind spinning around with ideas with what you have just shown us instead of my family problems. So thank you Pam for still Blogging & teaching. I’m looking forward to 2010 & taking your class online with IQuilts. I keep repeating myself but thank you for been such a generous quilter & artist. Cheers Glenda Down Under
