Quilts, Inc. brought their quilt show to Portland, OR and added stitching and knitting. We had a good time looking at the exhibits and, of course, helping the economy by checking out the vendors. I bought this stamp set from the British company www.colouricious.com I get their email and have some of the DVD's they produce. It's fun to see how others do things. The hummingbirds are what I wanted, the rest a nice bonus. They are about 3" beak to tail.
The next in the series of pieces done with Japanese 14" wide fabrics from my collection is this one. It's about 36" by 24". I hand stitched around the print using threads I painted. The quilting is dense echo quilting by machine. I like letting the print determine where the lines should go.
The detail shows the quilting. The glow was in the print.
