“Here’s The Finished Quilt”

Now that this art quilt is completed, I’m going to share a few more photos of it, in it’s final form. Many of the elements in this quilt will look familiar, because I’ve been posting photos all along, showing it’s progress as I’ve worked on it. The Finished Quilt, in it’s new home, Australia

The Finish Line in Sight

It’s been months of work on this large new commissioned quilt and I am just about finished. I’ve gotten a lot done since my last post about it and will show you a few of the most recent pictures and my next post I show you the finished quilt.

It’s around 50″ wide. The fabric was painted, then appliqué was done, covering almost the entire quilt top. Finally the extensive thread painting  was completed. I’ve nearly finished the quilting. Almost at the finish line and leaving for Australia to rest in it’s new home, the office of the psychologist who commissioned the piece.




A Look Over My Shoulder, Work Continues On My Latest Commission.

I’ve made some real progress at this stage, as the photo reveals.

I’m posting a few pictures along the way, as I work on my latest art quilt commission. Feel free to look over my shoulder if you’d  like to follow my progress  along the way. As I mentioned in my last post, this art quilt was commissioned by a psychologist in Australia. The subject she chose was an exotic tree called the Royal Poicaat. It was completely unknown to me, but that was about to change. I scoured the web searching for photos and any details that I could find. What I found was a gorgeous tree.

Looking at so many images of this unfamiliar tree. I wanted to feature some of what I felt were it’s most interesting traits. Rather than doing a whole tree which would not show a large enough view of  these traits. I choose instead to show several branches drooping down from the  upper right side showing some of it’s curving limbs, amazing flowers and the leaves that looked like fern fronds.

.A few sketches to get a feel for this tree.


More pictures later as it comes along.
