I designed this small quilt a couple of years ago under the name of Illustrative Quilting.
Of course I change my techniques at times and as I mentioned in the previous post I shared the ideas with my friends yesterday.
Some of the ladies decided to create their piece in pencil and I loved the effect. It is more subtle that the pen.
So early this morning I made this piece.
I've used Prisma pencils because I like the softness…
Many quilters are using Derwent Ink Tense… and indeed I have too, but I like the softness of Prisma or Derwent color Soft. I feel I can blend the colors a little more effectively.
Ink Tense is a harder pencil. You tend to see the lines.
The quilting on this small quilt will be different too. I'm going to quilt it from the back…Why?
Its a surprise…. I'm just about to see if it works…..so stay tuned.
I've almost finished the borders of the Houston Project so I hope to complete that today too.!!!
I'm just having a quiet morning in the 'shed'
