As I mentioned in my previous post, I've been intrigued by art quilts. Putting it more accurately, I'd like to be a little more creative with my quilting and for some reason I'm too intimidated by the fussiness of applique to dive in. Susan Carlson's book on fabric collage, Serendipity Quilts: Cutting Loose Fabric Collage , using small scraps fits the bill. This sun quilt is a project she provides in her book to get you started. It measures about 15" square. It took me a few evenings to complete and now I'd like to try one of my own. I'd like to do a fabric collage of these antique portraits with loud and colorful fabric choices. Check back later to see the completed portraits using Susan's technique.
