The light bulb that went quilt

Do you remember my earlier post about that light bulb moment when you are suddenly struck with an idea which excites you? This art quilt came from that kind of moment. I think you remember what I’m referring to.. Suddenly, a really, really good idea pops into your head, a this it !Eureka!’..

Waiting for that creative light bulb .

not wanting to waste this beautiful silk on the wrong design. I’d look at it from time to time, waiting for inspiration to hit me. Finally the light bulb went off over my head, I know just what I’m going to do!!

Field of Wildflowers 2 Robin Eggs

Just finished this one. It reminds me of an impressionist style, a Monet like art quilt?Well that may be a stretch…but anyway it is hand painted silk with the trees, nest and eggs painted separately and appliqued on. I spent a lot of time contemplating how to quilt it.  I’m happy with the results, look at the tree trunk and each little flower received thread painting [thereContinue reading “Field of Wildflowers 2 Robin Eggs”
