I was able to finish my Fence Art this week. I really love how it turned out.
Outdoor Textile Art

What I learned
I did end up stitching the outside edges of the blue fabric to minimize the amount of fraying. I love the look of the frayed edges but I'd rather that it didn't fray to nothing 😊
Final update - dowel painted!
- It took me a while to find the screw eyes - the tiny ones were with the picture framing stuff but the larger ones were elsewhere!
- I think that a fun, fall fence art piece would be cool.

Free Motion Mavericks
Welcome to week 348 of Free Motion Mavericks. Are you getting back into the swing of things, now that holidays and the summer is mostly over, and the kids may be back in school? I know that I'm looking forward to starting FMQ my son's quilt. I have no excuses left - it's no longer too hot!
We saw a few lovely quilts last time and even got a behind the scene look at digital custom long arm quilting from Rebecca. It's always great to learn about these things that look like magic to me 😊.
If you didn't see Frédérique's latest Bow Ties baby quilt, make sure to drop by. It really is lovely and colourful. It was simply quilted for maximum baby softness.

Good thing it did not get carried away. Where I live I don't dare hang anything outside because it seems the wind is always blowing. Your finish is beautiful and regardless of how you feel about your own stitching it looks great. Love the little bee. Yay, I finally made it to your linky party in time. Thank you.ReplyDelete
It's wonderful to have you here Denise! I think that the piece is pretty secure now but we'll see! Thanks for linking up and good luck with the quilt along - it looks great so far!Delete
I love your fence art. It looks great in your garden :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Janine. I bought fabric for a couple more - in fall colours. Not sure if I'll have time to make it for the fence before the winter but I'm looking forward to designing it! Take care.Delete
I just love your fence art quilt Andrée! It fits that spot just perfectly. This reminds me of a Mariner's Compass quilt I used to hang in our garden but haven't been able to do so since the hanger y husband made was appropriated for a Japanese beetle trap!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sandra. It really does add a lot to the garden. I'm hoping to make another one with a fall theme but today spent the day doing eco-printing. That was so much fun - and I'll know tomorrow but I think my results are much better than the first time I did it (and didn't even post about it - that's how not impressed I was!) Take care.Delete
Perfect backdrop to your garden. The bee steals the show.ReplyDelete
Thanks Gwyned - I agree :-)Delete
What a perfect addition!!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Alycia. Have a great week!Delete
Never would have thought to hang a piece outside. I may have to hang one in our new (almost finished) 3 season room. Hum, I wonder what pattern would be good for that location?ReplyDelete
Hi Bonnie, that sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Enjoy!Delete
Quelle bonne et belle idée d'accrocher un quilt dehors ! J'adore l'abeille ;)ReplyDelete
Merci pour le partage de ton lien dans ma link party :^)
Bonjour Frédérique. J'espère que tu vas bien. Merci pour le message et le party. Bonne fin de semaine.Delete
The fence art turned out beautifully! Love the littl details you've added. Good luck with the quilting project. Happy stitching this week.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kate. I'm really happy with it and it survived 3 days of rain without and issue - that's more than I can say for my lawn, which is now a mushroom garden :-) Take care.Delete
