Purple House - Part 8 - Ready to Quilt

I added a sun at the top.

It is great to get to this point, where I am done with putting it together

Here is the sun.  Text was written with a fine point fabric pen...with sentences about the sun.
What's next?  Cutting it to the size 24" wide by 60" long.  I made it larger on each side, and will cut it down, allowing for 1/4" of shrinkage when I free motion machine quilt it.  The title of this piece is "Make a Wish on the Purple House."  It is part of Dinner at Eight Artists exhibit for 2012 "Rituals."


  1. I LOVE it!! It's been fun to see your process. I'm sure it will be a hit at the show.

  2. This is beautiful! I like the idea of writing on the sun. I just got 2 of your DVDs and loved them! Can't wait to try my own art quilt!
