Continuation of a year of quilting.

                                 A little idea I had





I Had An Idea


I had an idea that I thought was a good one. I made 3 original Daisy themed art quilts, each one different from the others yet they clearly were made to form a cohesive group.

They are in a beachy cottage style. I painted 2 frames in an exact blue color, then distressed the frames. They look as if they could have been made with driftwood found the beach.

They are each different, yet made similar enough to look like a cohesive grouping. It can easily be hung in various configurations that make an attractive wall display.

They can be hung directly out of the box however you like.


When hung together as a group they make an attractive display on your wall. I think my little idea turned out to be good one!

I had the 3 frames, each one different from the other. Simply spraying them all the same color wouldn’t give the beach cottage look. How boring that would look, flat without texture. A beach theme should look as if a few pieces of driftwood were found on the beach, then made into frames. there would be some subtle differences.

Two of the frames were painted to look a bit battered after I distressed them


The distressed blue frames match but not totally.

This created a cohesive grouping, easily hung together creating an attractive display for your room.

The 2 blue frames are similar, I matched the color & distressed them, But to give each a separate personality, I made a few subtle differences

This trio are in a colaying on the beach would have been pushed and pulled against the rocks and sand distressing them differently

I think you get the idea, these subtle the differences have to be taken into tragedy/beachy style.h&ereaccount when you are mixing the color. Simply spraying paint the same color wouldn’t-create the texture.





The difference in the thickness of these two frames  demonstrates that they were not made  to go together as a set. If you look at the larger it is much thicker or deeper than the thin smaller one.

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. by my teens I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was completely out of place, I tried to go unnoticed, a mute fly on the wall, with a big smile pasted on my face. I've continued to paint most of my life. After a move to Oregon years later, I was introduced to quilting and fell in love. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. There are often many changes and adjustments along the way. The result can often be surprizing. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction. I love that element of surprize! Sometimes I have one that I especially like, I can't wait to show someone. At that moment l 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. I’ve had some of my work published in several magazines. which is exciting. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt. Word press Etsy shop-sales Contact: inquiry Personal Links
