F.O.: She Art Mini Quilt #2

I made another She Art Girl. 



She's pretty dang cute if I do say so myself. I threw everything but the kitchen sink on some printed batik fabric (I think it's Kaufmann, but it's old stash so I'm not positive what line it is).




These are so much fun to make, and I can't decide if I like creating the background canvas using all kinds of paint, stamps, and textural elements, or making the She Art girls themselves and seeing their "personalities" develop. 


Or finding just the right quote that fits not only the Girl, but how I'm feeling or what I'm thinking at the moment.




I've been working on more of these Girls and I'll share them with you as I finish them. I'm getting better at the techniques and products used, and the ideas are flowing faster than my hands can stamp, scrunch, paint, splatter, and sew!

In the meantime, if you want to know the starting place for how I make these, check out the She Art Workshop from Christy Thomlinson. She is simply fabulous, and a HUGE source of inspiration.

  1. How do you print out the words? Is it one of the fabric sheets? I buy the Timeless Treasures sheets but only use them when I have a lot of stuff to print out because I don't want to waste the entire sheet on something small. What do you do?

  2. Very retro! I think I had a pair of pants like that in the 70's.

    1. Oh you absolutely could Sandy! I used a hand dye for my background in the first She Art quilt I made.
