Getting Ready to be Titivated

Posted by Linda Matthews on November 5, 2010

Today I’m packing and getting ready to teach my Titivations workshop tomorrow. Here are some of the samples these lucky students will get to see close up and personal ….

Even though my students are part of an art doll group, the embellishing techniques they’ll learn can be applied to any sort of textile project – art quilts, art dolls, wearables.

This is one of my favorite art quilts – “In The Garden: Flowers”. This is one of a series of three art quilts embellished with soft edges using machine needlelace, and of course, lots of free motion embroidery and hand beading.

Another favorite is “Soliloquy”, heavily embellished with free motion quilting and beads.

And “Puddles”, also heavily embellished with hand stitching, beading, machine needlelace and three dimensional elements. The background was machine needle felted.

And I’m also packing the kits. Whoo hoo! What fun!
