Just finished this small art quilt o the mountains. Love the misty effect and the swirly clouds. The silk quilts so beautifully.
Just finished "Rain" an art quilt of silk that I painted my rain painting on and then quilted. I love the beautiful sheen of the silk, its so hard to photograph. There is a rain frog here too!
And some sparkly beads to emphasize the big, wet water drops!
Love these beautiful leaves.... looks like they could just be tickled by frost! thanks to my sister Robin for these beautiful images!!!!!
Just had to add some leaves... saw these beauties about a month ago in Watauga County near Boone.
Cowboys and Indians is a twin size quilt I made a while back and I decided to donate it to our church's quilt ministry. It is homespun and calico; those are such truly homey and lovely fabrics! I love the feelings they evoke.
Three cowboys and three Indian heroes are the focal points of the quilt, each outlined in ribbon. They are Sitting Bear, a prestigious Kiowa warrior and medicine man born around 1800; Ben Long Ears and Two Moons, handsome warriors photographed by Curtis; Wyatt Earp, 1848-1929, a noted lawman, buffalo hunter and saloon keeper; Roy Rogers,1911-1998, a singer and cowboy actor and Bill Pickett, 1870-1932,who was known as "the world's colored champion bulldogger." He was a legendary Texas cowboy of black and Cherokee descent and was credited with inventing bulldogging.
Starting up some more crazy blocks, this time in brown instead of pink. They are so much fun. These first two are just sew-ons, just keep sewing pieces on with no pattern. I dyed some scrap bits of lace from a torn tablecloth and used strong coffee. Loved the old effects I got...
So far, only two blocks started but you can see some of the coffee lace on one of them...
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
