What I found in making these, was that each new project you begin,, no matter how many spools of thread, or amounts of fabric that you own, there will always be at least one or more necessary colors that you don’t have. I needed a huge variety in the shades of red, Thus began the great “thread quest’, I can’t fathom that out of my entire collection of thread, massive as it is, I couldn’t find the exact shades of red that I wanted. Unbelievable, and I will provide pictures to impress upon you just how unbelievable this is..When I say that I have a massive stock of thread , enough to open my own store, it is no exaggeration.
“It’s Raining Pink”. This art quilt is from the perspective of looking up the trunk of an old twisted cherry tree. It carries the scars gained from many years. As you look up you see a cloud of pink above. Your eyes follow the slow drift of a pink petal as it finally reaches the ground below your feet, that is covered with pink. Is it raining pink?
A new collection of Asian Fusion art quilts. Hand painted silk with hand painted elements appliquéd on.
I used applique to attach the flowers, which were thread painted to add body and detail.
Here’s the finished art quilt.
