Everything interests me! I am a creative. I make quilts. I make beaded jewelry. I make wire-wrapped pendants jewelry with metals. Over the last couple of years I have had an increasing desire to combine these mediums on/with fabric. These ideas have been fueled by my membership in the Mavericks, a contemporary art quilt chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild. This creative group of men and women love to create with fibers and fabric and think outside the box on a regular basis.
I did a presentation to the group about my experiments with combining different media with quilting. Below are some shots of my examples using various papers, Golden Gel Mediums, and metals. For this post, I will focus on Gel Mediums. These experiments were all done using Golden Gel Mediums because that's what I happen to have. My guess is that other brands are equally good, so experiment away. Oh, and, have fun!
