Art quilt “Jelly Fish Love” is finished. What a fun custom order.

When I got the request for this custom order for 2 jelly fish featured in an art quilt, I would never have thought of doing a wall hanging with this theme. But the more I thought about the request, the more excited I got about the idea.

I did some sketches, after looking at a lot of photos of jelly fish. My biggest obstacle was how do you capture the fluidity? How do you take fabric and try to make it almost translucent looking, and jellys almost look  lit from within, how do you do that with fabric? Art quilt “Jelly Fish Love” is finished. What a fun custom order.

Progress on the art quilt-jellyfish in love

As I promised, I’m updating my progress on the jelly fish art quilt I’m making for a custom order on my etsy site; AsianArtAndQuilts@etsy.com { take a peak}.

fusing done, thread painting started

Some detail done a lot more to do. This is the fun part.

the fabric is rock candy blank fabrics I think, gold and copper metallic highlights.

Today this is what I’ve done, real progress on the thread painting, this is the fun stuff.

more fill in details

Sad blurry little  picture, and me claiming to be a somewhat good pphotographer, my ego has no bounds apparently.

Here’s another:

I like the staghorm coral, but siome of the limbs could be bigger, waht do you think? Tell me your thoughts.

The jelly I may have just over done it with the details, do you think?

Less is more, I may be ripping out threads if this doesn’t start growing on me.

less detail on this one, better yes?

I have one more pic, a darling humming bird outside my kitchen window.

Is this an Annis? Any experts out there?
