Impressionist Art Quilt; Impression Sunrise In theThe Garden

Barbara Harms Fiber Art & More

This is hand painted silk.with all the flowers hand painted and appliqued on. In case you didn’t notice, there a lot of those funny little abstract flowers.Yet, this was a fun quilt to make.
In the spring, I like to have my first cup of coffee in the garden, admiring the flowers. The colors seem lit from within. The air is heavy with fragrance of the flowers, it lifts you off your bench. to smell and look at each flower.
I wonder if Monet did that in his garden at Giverny?

Barbara Harms-Up Close and Personal I've been a painter most of my life. I was introduced to quilting after moving to Oregon and instantly fell in love it. It was new and exciting, I jumped in with both feet. As enjoyable as I found quilting, I began to miss the creative freedom painting affords. Then, I discovered fiber art quilting, I was finally home. My Process & Approach For me, it's the process of creating that holds the strongest attraction. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, then I follow where it leads. My style is fairly loose and instinctual. The choices and decisions that come up as I work on a piece, are made based on my gut feelings. This can result in quite a few changes in direction. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise. Sometimes everything just comes together & I think that this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat.

  2. the quilt is very beautiful. one may think that art has to be on a canvas to be considered artwork, but wherever one decides to express their art work, should be considered art. The quilts are hand painted and they are amazing. Many of our beddings are manufactured from else where. None of the designs on my beddings are hand painted on. These quilts are amazing!

    1. Thanks so much Mirellah. I am an painter for many years so combining painting and quilting methods, thread-painting ect. came as a pretty natural of a direction for me. I love traditional quilting as well and do that too, but art is my leaning.

    2. Mirellah I appreciate your comment and
      insights about art quilting. More and more it is gaining acceptance as a art form and not just a craft or hobby it;s popularity is fast rising. That is why many collectors are buying a lot of it at the bargain prices it goes for presently ,being original work. The low prices it is now it is obtainable ,won’t last long, as the popularity raises value.It is quite a good investment at the present time. AS a painter of many years after I developed an interest in traditional quilts, before long I naturally leaned more and more to the art quilting, art using traditional methods in a unique way the painted fabrics and dyed fabric with painting & quilting but added dyeing and produced more artist formds. So fiber art was born!
