A few/several months ago, I was participating in a Charley Harper QAL of sorts - hosted by Ethne at Flaming Stitches. She had gotten permission from the estate of Charley Harper for us to either copy directly or be inspired by his work.
I made two pieces - one inspired by and one a copy, and said at the time, I had one more to make. Well, here it is!
I made it in the same manner as the others, except that this time, after I fused the fabric, I drew the reverse image directly on the paper backing, and cut them out, rather than make a pattern and trace it. Why waste the step?
For the corn cob, I cut out strips of already fused fabric and then further cut them into little square-ish shapes, and then placed them by hand, using a tweezer.
After I had placed all the bits on my pieced background, I ironed them down (with a sheet of paper between the cloth and the bits) and when it had cooled, pinned it to my batting and backing.
And then I quilted the dog out of it.
So here are the other two:
This one's the direct copy:
This one's inspired by:
And this one is a blend of the two. All three will be framed and will hang in our bedroom.
