It's reveal day! Quarter one for Four-in-Art. This year's theme is Light and our first quarter is Shimmer.
There isn't too much to say about this quilt.
I was rather stumped as to what I should do this time around, so I went to the web and searched on Shimmer. Most things referred to how a shimmer is perceived - brighter and darker - but one image really stood out to me.
Lips! With Glitter! So I went with something fun.
I do usually try to do something in each art quilt that I've not tried before. So this one has printing directly onto fabric - I used my color printer and Kona White fabric.
I also experimented a bit with some trapunto.
The lips were at first somewhat shriveled
So I pumped them up. Too much! The whole quilt was distorted.
The shimmer did print fairly well - but I thought I'd go all out for the shine - so glitter it was! A golden tone on the lips and a white "diamond" on the borders.
I'm not terribly thrilled with my attempts at a facing - the corners need some work.
This little quilt finished up at 12" x 12". I think I'm back to the smaller shape this year - after trying bigger last year.
Please check out all my mates playing along.
