Sketchbook Challenge -Up Close

Playing with my Up Close theme today ...
for the Sketch Book Challenge...and FMQ some of the leaves I drew yesterday.

Varigated Aurifil 50 on the top and Auriful 50 in the bobbin.

This is the first one painted - it really is a mess!
Its done some with Intense pencils and the leaf on the right ...
is done with Art Spectrum paints.
I like to plain quilting so much better.

Green silk thread in the top and Aurifil in the bobbin.

Wasnt going to show the painted one, but I just finished playing with it, and decided to put it up anyway.

Now I am back to my WCQ soon... I am hand sewing some of my Patchwork Of The Crosses...one more block to attach to the fifth row - YAY

lovely leaves uou quilted. Your drawings of these leaves were also great. Drawing is just like quilting and so quilting is just like drawing. Your leaves are a perfect example.

I couldn´t resist. Pinned you at Pinterest - http://pinterest.com/beatrizsr/yarn-and-fabric/

This is the second time I pin. Should delete both pins just let me know.

Wonderful! I love your leaves.

I agree - I like the plain stitched leaves better! But I'm a quilting kind of girl, not into painting that much. You do such a lovely job of quilting that it's a shame to hide it in all that paint =^..^=

Wow lovely work - neat to see it transformed from paper to fabric.

Your quilting is always so beautiful, it stands wonderfully by itself, although your painted versions are interesting, and give an entirely different effect.
