Leslie McNeil is back with another of her beautiful collage art quilts. She started working with this collage technique a few years ago and has really mastered it. She now teaches it and has patterns available. There's even a pattern for Sun Blossom Pony. This one features the Barrier Island background fabric which has been quilted with a bobbin quilting technique, as well as beading by machine. There are over 100,000 stitches in this piece.
Leslie does all of her quilting on a domestic sewing machine and her stitching is exquisite. She create beautiful texture and is not afraid to use bold threads so that her quilting stands out.
She's a wonderful photographer too! You can see lots more of her work, peruse her patterns and things for sale and find out about her classes on her website.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
