i This is one of the art quilt I started a little while back “Hot Air Rising”. I thought I’d post the result. This silk painted fiber art quilt is a combination of oranges and dark blue. I threw in a touch of copper and gold metalic. Lately I’ve been just mad for orange andContinue reading “Hot Air Rising”
Been busy last few months. Now I’ve caught my breath, I’ve started a new art quilt.This one is an abstract.
A few posts back, I mentioned an unfinished project I had restarted. Was I just having a little free motion fun? Or was I seriously considering this a legitimate quilt? Was this my guilty little pleasure, like some low brow TV show that you enjoy, but would never admit it?

The hand painted silk had such beautiful colors, flowing teal, green and blue with the sharp contract of a bright punch of red. I enjoyed the thread painting on this, finding the right balance to work with the design, not obscure it.
As I worked on it I pictured in my mind the canopy at the top of a rain forest.
I’ve finished ! “Seuss Over Youse” is all done. It was loads of fun, I will miss thing two and thing oneT
Enough of this sillyness, I’ve run out of material anyway. But you have to admit I made the effort!
NEW QUILT END OF !ST DAY I just felt like goofing with crazy wild quilting the other night. I have these fluorescent Superior threads that were calling my name, ” Come out and play!”. Then there were these wildly colored fabrics… I don’t use my stash much these days, use my own painted/dye fabric, mostlyContinue reading “Seuss Over You”
As I was making this quilt I was thinking of sun light as it penetrates the water above a coral reef. The water filters and softens the light. I could imagine the colors that might result. That is the thought behind this new art quilt, Filtered Light. I have had such a fascination with impressionist style art quilts. Is that an actualContinue reading “Filtered Light an art quilt”
