Woven Quilt........Class Sample



Click Images to Enlarge:


Today I am making a Woven Quilt for a class sample.
I chose some solid looking batiks and some fibers in different weights.
Let's see what happens...




This was Fun!
I tore all of the strips, no rotary cutting.

I used the same weaving technique I developed for my Cow Pony Quilt.

Canvas Stretcher Board

I decided to mount this woven quilt on a stretcher board.
This will help support the weight of the piece.




Canvas covered in black batik fabric




Installing a picture hook on the back of the canvas

This is my Thread Shed Toolbox........it holds very different tools than my regular tool box in the house!




I stitched the quilt through the canvas to hold it in place.
This also gives me the option of removing the quilt from the canvas if I need to.




Quilt Label fused to the back of the canvas




" Weaving My Dreams "




Beads sewn on by hand




Beads strung on to the fibers hanging at the bottom.


This project was free spirited for me........I am a recovering Perfectionist........and ripping fabric with stray threads dangling here and there is not my norm.........but I enjoyed every minute of it.........thus the name.........Weaving My Dreams.
