A TIFFANY IN THE ATTIC  57" x 38"  2003           Back to Gallery  


A Tiffany inspired picture was created using a hand reverse appliqué technique. After it was quilted and textured by machine, the picture was then cut into rectangles. Medium and a dark fabric strips were added to each rectangle to give an Attic Window effect and the picture was reconstructed with a black joining strip which formed part of the over-all design.

*I love the dimensional effect of the Attic Windows in the foreground of this quilt. They are so easy to prepare and they add depth and interest to what was, disappointingly, a rather flat picture.
