My quilt (that I'm calling 'The Viking') was inspired by this painting by one of my favorite artists, Nicholas Roerich. I started out by making a sketch on a large piece of paper and I simplified it by only drawing the main parts... one ship, one Viking, a few birds, and fewer mountains and buildings.
Then I pieced it all together with Wendy Butler Burns' glue basting technique. I had fun quilting it and adding little bits of embellishment.
And I must admit that my favorite part is this corner with the green mountains and three buildings. It's hard to see, but I stitched three glass beads on them.
Now it's your turn... what have you been stitching up?
Remember, if you decide to post your picture(s) online (like on facebook, flickr, or your blog) the linky page will let you enter a link to the page where it is so we can visit it. If it's not posted online yet, you may skip that part and upload a picture from your computer. We all can't wait to see!
Don't forget, the most clicked project will be spotlighted here next Friday.
