This is really a fun challenge. My quilt started with an Art Deco, marble candy dish. I used the figurine who sits on a marble stool as my model. I incorporated the image onto my background with an imaginary hotel sign. On the background I use oil based paint sticks, a yellow highlighted marker, embroidery and metallic threads, thread painting, stifle free motion quilting, as well as some hand stitching. To bring the piece together I framed the quilt with some trim from my stash. The letters HOTEL actually glitters with the help of a very shiny thread.
Thank you for such a great topic.
