Of course, while driving around the other day, I came up with a different title and I love it. I will keep you all in suspense until I get the final label on the quilt and it is set in ink.
I sampled different paints, inks and other coloring agents, both transparent and opaque. After applying my base colors, I quilted out the piece. After quilting (and first testing on my sample piece) I layered more color on the surface with paints, Inktense pencils and oil pastel sticks. I trimmed the piece to size and faced it with some of the Sticks and Stones fabric by Moda I used on the front. I liked it so much that I went back to Primitive Gatherings where I originally purchased it and bought more yardage to use in other projects.
The suspense is over. Thinking about the time that my peeps started their trek over (1603) I have changed the title. The hardship of the ocean voyage, the unknown of what the land would be like and reading some of the genealogy records I decided this is a more fitting moniker. It is inked and labeled and ready to turn in for the exhibit in November. the title is:
Brave Hearts and Restless Feet
After getting the final work done on this piece, I will work on pieces for the SAQA twin exhibit call for entry of Tranquility and Turmoil.
