Eileen Doughty Designs
Quilts and Fabric Art

I have been quilting since about 1987, and really love doing the pictorial quilts, they are so fun and challenging at the same time.  I usually use commercial fabrics because they are readily available, and fabrics with interesting "natural" textures are getting easier to find. however, when I see some nice hand-dyed fabric (particularly for skies or water) I snatch it -- after a few attempts at dyeing on my own, I gladly pay the premium price!

I also like to use the "thread sketching" technique for details such as foliage.  It lends itself to adding more texture and a natural look to features, while being fast!

These were not designed on the computer, but I have recently gotten some quilt software and am enjoying using it for some of my more traditional commissions.

Cotton fabrics, ribbon and inked details, cotton batting
Machine pieced, appliqued and quilted
The water fabric was commercially produced, the sky fabric was hand dyed
47 x 48 inches

This quilt was juried into the 1995 American Quilter's Society annual show.

The source for the scene was a client's photograph of their vacation home.

I used "thread sketching" extensively to add detail to the trees and other vegetation. The windsock is three-dimensional. I enjoyed finding shades of brown fabric to give the illusion of the support posts receding under the house.
