Street work


The quilt top is ready to prepare for quilting.

It looks a little messy right now, but the quilting is planned and the shading of the various pieces of fabric will be quite subtle. It  will serve as the background for the quilting.

I will use quite a few shades of grey.  50 weight Superior Masterpiece.

Most of the quilt will be "Illustrative Quilting"I want it to look as if I'm scribbling with pencil… no feathers, no fans…. no "fill in" quilting… I'm going to use the fabulous freemotion foot on the 7700 Janome.

In previous posts I've shared with you the illustrations that will be Ghost quilted into the piece.

The back will be pieced with various shades and textures anf black and grey…. and probably one piece of red fabric….



This is my tag.. PKH… so if you see it anywhere, it's not necessarily me… but someone copying it…!!!!!

It's going to be 42 degrees today….(108) I have the aircon cranked in the studio and the pool looks sooo inviting..

    Feathers are not fillers – they are features!

    Judy, I agree feathers are features…. but I said no fillers…. I could have put stippling, mctavishing…etc…. but left it to the imagination..!!!!

  4. I love the use of ‘Bankies’ graffitti, he really is the king of the streets. Now, I am seriously jealous of that tag. I have been trying for years to come up with one!

  5. That should have been Banksy.
