I started my Time Lapse art quilt on Jan, 19. We’ll see how long making an art quilt takes me. Here is the first progress report.
Today is Jan. 27th, Here’s where I am at. It may show, but a lot of work has been done.
It really is pretty, and you can’t tell. I have taken a few more photos and done a few tweaks.
It has such dazzling glittery threads, that just don’t show up in photos. To illustrate the differences
between the actual quilt and the picture of the quilt, I made a list

“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?

I’ve started work on 3 quilts, don’t ask me why. I usually take em one at a time.The silk background is completed and the silk art painting finished. I’ve just begun the thread work, which is now where near finished as you see. I’ll post updated pictures along the wayI added lots of pearl to my paint colors as I mixed them. So to continue the sparkle, shine theme I’m using quite a lot of metallic threads for the thread work.
So I did the unthinkable, gasp, I took a photo from a moving car. In fact I took several photos. After I downloaded to my computer, surprise, my phone took better photos than I expected. Several in particular I really liked, of a row of popular trees lining the highway silhouetted by the sunset. The minute I saw those photos, the first thing that popped into my mind was AN ART QUILT!!! .
Here’s a peek at a new art quilt I’ve started. I’m going to call it 60 MPH Out The Window’ I took several images from my iPhone and used them as the inspiration for this wall hanging.
