The Finished Line
By Bonnie Marshall
I have owned this painting for a very long time and have learned over the last five years of quilting that you can turn anything you see and love into a quilt.
I have been so taken by the stunning art quilts that i have seen at the guilds and quilt shows that I set out to take all of the classes I can fit into anotherwise very busy schedule.
I learned how to paint and hand dye fabric and little by little to thread paint. The finish line is an example of all of the above.
I used hand painted and hand dyed fabric and then turned the entire piece over and thread painted using "bobbin work".
I then quilted the piece in a very free form style of quilting to give it some movement.
My journey continues........
