May/June 2014 Challenge: Art Challenge Results

 This challenge was to create a sewing project that was influenced by a traditional discipline of art.


 Carol's pencil drawing of her neighbor's poppies

Color added

Pieced home-dec fabric

The finished poppies. They will be placed on a green background for a wall hanging.

Susan T.

Susan painted and stitched a floral embellishment for this straw purse.

She added some paint inside too!


Cynthia made these dimensional biscuits....

to embellish this jacket.


Marge loves nature. She used turkey feathers from her place up north in this landscape.


Kathy made some lovely flowers using Martha Stewart templates...

for her garden complete with dragonfly lights!


Jan was inspired by this article (Quilting Arts #64)...

to make this peachy peach.  She is planning a framed grouping.

Sue B.

Sue used this image as her inspiration

She rust dyed, then over dyed and stenciled this silk yardage. We can't wait to see what she makes with it!


Brenda started with an idea from the Pattern Magic book

She drafted an oval version of the pattern... 

and added embroidered shells in the middle

you can see the depth better here.

She did this too--its the same technique Jan used--and since she completed two projects:
Brenda gets the over-achiever of the month award!!!!


I was inspired by graffiti and architecture....

to create this fabric collage. More at my blog Room for Sewing.

This was a busy month. We deserve a break. See you in July at Sue B's.
