Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010

I sure had hoped to get this up a little sooner. It's just the story of my life at the moment. So here it is:

This is called In Santa's Workshop. I just loved making it. This was the first time that I did shading and coloring on a quilt. I took a class to get some of the basics down. All the faces on the elves were done with the same fabric. I just used different colors for them. I used fabrico markers and crayons. Some of the elves had more work to them than others. If you look close up at the boots those also have shading done to them.



On this one below the wood and the sawhorse are one piece of fabric, but with some coloring it looks like different pieces. I loved how this came out.


My husband calls this the Target elf.



On this one the stool was shaded and the fabric he's holding is all one piece of fabric. The shading and coloring really make a difference.




I'm by far not an artist, but for my first time I don't think it turned out to bad. Hope every enjoys. Have a great Blogger's Quilt Festival. Don't forget to check all the other beautiful quilts over at Park City Girl. Amy does such a great job. TaTa for now.
