Quilted stem cells

I don’t know if this looks much different but it is now quilted with a layer of wool batting behind, with very close quilting in the background red areas so there is somewhat of a trapunto effect. I also painted a little more with some golden fluid acrylic glazes to give a little more transparent shading.

    This is amazing! I would love to see in person, I’ll bet that it would “knock my socks” off.

    Just beautiful. The color and the shading—I am transported.

    Question: the one time I used wool batting and machine quilting I had wool peaking out through the threads. It was commercial cotton so perhaps you are using a tighter weave? Or does the painting keep that from happening?

    I tried to get the inks from the local artist supply and they had no experience with them–no golden fluid glazes either. A source???

  5. what an amazing piece judy!I love it

  6. I have never had a problem with wool coming through. I think it is probably because the fabric I use has a tighter weave. All my fabric is either hand dyed or painted from test fabrics or P&B pfd.

    You can get Tsukineko inks at webofthread.com or jukeboxquilts.com.
