This Is Why I Have Not Posted Since Monday: Buddha Crazy Quilt Wallhanging

I feel bad for not having posted in a few days, although I am happy to see a mostly positive discussion coming about because of my last post.

But there is a reason, and it is a good one.

I have been working on my latest piece of fabric art, which you can see pictured to the right.

It is a gift for Zak, and when it is finished, it will be a quilted wall-hanging. No, I am not working with a pattern–I am just cutting fabric and piecing as I go. The centerpiece of it is a screenprinted Buddha from India; the rest of the fabrics are cotton Balinese batiks. It will hang at the end of our long upstairs hallway, which is painted a brilliant sky blue over the altar where the carved wooden Buddha I gave Zak for his birthday a couple of years ago sits.

I’ve only been working on it for a couple of days, but I am making very fast progress.

I’ll post updates now and again, and when Kat’s quilt comes back from the lady who is machine quilting it, I will post pictures of it, too.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled food blog!

  2. Wow, really nice, and it will look absolutely stunning against that background you described. Lovely!

  3. Very cool.
    My daughter makes iron on transfers from her computer to add to her wearables. She added Buddha to the back of one of her vintage coats.
