Sharon M

When the challenge was first announced I immediately had a Phoenix in my thoughts and I knew I wanted to do something with one. I did a simple landscape drawing and mirrored it to give me a foundation to build my piece. In each little scene I did my fabrics in monochrome and added heavy black lines to give the feel of stained glass. To highlight the different elements I added color. To finish and give more definition I did some free motion quilting….I think I am growing in this area. My finished quilt is 18 x 22.

  7. The mirror imaging and the grays are very evocative.

  8. We are all growing so muchn in the group. Your piece shows it so much with the way you had done your Phoenix and the way you put it all together.
