Snippets

Leave a comment

Yesterday, I finished a new snippet quilt. This one was a cardinal in a pine tree. I had intended to do it in portrait in stead of landscape.  (Before thread painting the cardinal)IMG_6841

I forgot until i went to frame it. So without knowing if i could fix it I dare to cut of both ends. I zigzagged a strip of canvas at the top and bottom and covered it all with more snippets, and added snow to the pines. Then i encased the entire picture in more tool and put on a new back and requilted. IMG_6842

Finally framed and ready to deliver. I was very pleased with the result and so was the person who commissioned it.
