Quilt Label DVD Vol 2

Quilt Label DVD Vol 2

I’m thrilled to be included in the Quilt Label CD Vol 2 with C&T Publishing! The CD releases in July 2012, and can be pre-ordered soon on the C&T Publishing website. The Quilt Label CD Vol 1 is currently listed on the site. The CD is a collection of many quilt artists and designers. I was very fortunate to have 14 of my images included in Vol 2. In the close-up picture above, I used the original artwork to manipulate the colors in Photoshop and print the design in color onto the fabric. I added a hand stitched backstitch around portions of the shapes and then added the hot-fix glass stones. Sure, they *could* be crystals…. but my price point was down in the “cut glass” category. They still look pretty cool though. (Totally inspired to use those shiney-ies after seeing McLisa’s award-winning quilt,...

Sketched Shoes

And continuing on my sewing break- Sketched SHOES. The first shoe, Valentino Lace Heel, was a google image search. The other two shoes are by Poetic Licence. When shopping in Wichita’s Old Town (at Lucinda’s) they had LOTS of Poetic Licence pieces. I snapped a few pics with my phone and came home to draw them. (quick snapped pictures make for some bizarre perspective- I think I should stick to drawing the nice catalog pics from the internet.) I later looked up Poetic Licence online. …. man, I need those shoes. The sketches were done with an ebony pencil on paper… and then snapped poorly by an iPhone camera so I could have a little jpg action to share with...

While my website was on a break, I decided to take a short sewing break to sketch. Animals, first. I found images using google search and sketched them in my sketch book. It is so relaxing. Even if an eye is crooked, or the feet are twisted, it is just fun to draw. Thousands of elementary school kids couldn’t be wrong- just sayin. These sketches were done with an Ebony pencil and...

Did you see the fun Quilt Labels DVD released with C&T Publishing. It is on their blog today. You’ll have to check out their post- you might just win a prize! When you take these digital, printable images and couple it with their Transfer Artist Paper- it makes for a super fast, accurate, durable quilt label. I’m so thrilled to be a part of it. Wait ’til you see all the -over 150- fun designs in the collection. Hopefully I’ll be able to give one away here, on the blog really soon. If you don’t already subscribe, add http://reannalilydesigns.com/blog to your blog reader of choice-? so you don’t miss a thing. And soon soon, this little baby will be in my online shop. This is one of my samples- printed directly onto fabric, hand written, then accented with Crayola Fabric Permanent markers. The flower in this particular label is straight out of my sketchbook…. um… that then went onto canvas and currently lives in my studio, right by my light switch. The canvas has quite a different feel than the label, right?? I love them both. I thought you guys might want to see that. Oooh and in the quilt label DVD, there’s a pair of sketched combat boots and a a silhouette of a military man in uniform- for all your Deploy That Fabric quilts. Thanks for checking it out! I hope you win the give away at C&T Publishing’s...
