The purpose of this blog is share with others the processes involved in my favorite form of creativity- silk art quilts. The creative process itself is a fascinating thing. I am constantly amazed by it- both its simplicity and its complexity.

I feel strongly that I am a better person since I truly started following my dream. Because of collectors--those who actually buy original art-- I am able to live my dream. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You can see more of my work at my website http://www.rebelquilter.com/.

Yikes Stripes Back

Here I am at my most scenic glory using freezer paper stencils to paint the circles on the back of Yikes Stripes!
I decided less is more and opted to end off adding more elements to the back. All of the painting here is done with either freezer paper stencils or a stamp made from craft foam mounted on a piece of lathe. The paints were interference and metallic acrylic paints.

Tomorrow I'll pin the three layers together in preparation for quilting. Still don't know how I'll quilt it. Perhaps I'll start out by sewing from underside first using the outline of the circles to freemotion the shapes and fill in from there.
