Raw-edged fused applique
Shiva Paint Sticks
I began this interpretation with enthusiasm for the scene. After choosing the fabrics the construction of the building began, then the foreground, vines and chair.
After the main objects were finished and quilted I began adding the details.
The long stalk behind the chair looked like it needed to by a hollyhock.
I used a fabric marker to paint in the details on the flowers before quilting.
Leaves were added to the vine.
The foreground flower pots were done with embroiderie perse flowers and ferns.
The window frame and vase were added and quilted.
Last was the curtain made from a vintage doilie.
I like the comforting feel of this piece. I thought it would be nice for someone who does not have this view out their window and could hang this and it would take them to this world as though it were their view from their window.
