Home, Home on the Range
This is my most recent commission quilt, based on a photo by Mary Maguire of the Toiyabe Mountain Range in Nevada, USA. I painted the sky,and the golden eagle, painted the mountains with Puff Paint, then fabric paints and markers, appliqued the foothills and the desert, and made the sagebrush of fusible interfacing and Lutradur, painted, with fusible webbing on the back. The fenceposts were painted using Puff Paint and appliqued with invisible thread; the barbed wire is an altered sewing machine embroidery stitch. It is 66"w x 52"t and quilted using my home domestic sewing machine.
