Project QUILTING 13.2: In Silhouette

Continuing with my new series of Project QUILTING artist trading cards (ATCs) I created a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" quilt featuring a silhouette of my 3-year-old niece. I used solid black batik with black MistyFuse to fusible appliqué the silhouette to my background fabric. My quilting is minimal, just long the edge of the silhouette (more easily seen from the back). This is my submission to this week's In Silhouette one week quilt challenge from Project QUILTING.

I started with this photo my sister took for me of my niece. I printed it on paper at the size I wanted to use it, traced the border of my niece with a marker, then used it as my pattern to cut out my fused fabric.

Here's a peek at the back.

 

I'm linking up to Project QUILTING 13.2. So far there are over 130 entries! I hope you'll check them out. The next challenge comes out on January 30.

For PQ 13.1 I created a whole cloth ATC.

    How adorable. I didn't play this week...I didn't like the theme and didn't want to waste time and fabric on something that didn't make me happy. Looking forward to next week. Have a great week.

      Thanks, Kim. And now that my tiny labels have arrived (pic in my upcoming post with this week's ATC) I'll be able to send it off!
