Current Work - Jennifer Scantlebury Vienneau, Moncton, New Brunswick

Approximately 45 x 72 

This is a collaborative piece made with my son, Gabriel. I enlarged Gabriel’s design using my overhead projector, traced the design onto Steam-a-Seam, adhered that to Kona cotton, cut the pieces out, laid them out on the background using a pounced pattern, fused them to the background of black double dip cotton (not easy because twice the dye makes adherence difficult), sewed each piece to the background and then quilted around each piece on my longarm. After quilting evenly spaced rows across the width, I buried all the threads individually. Gabriel is an Accounting Manager and this piece hangs in his home in Toronto.
