This quilt was a commission for a group who wanted a raffle quilt with an eagle on it. I like the way it turned out. It was a big one and took lots of work quilting it on my home sewing machine.
Quick little design sketches, some with potential to become quilts. I am shooting for 36 of them but so far have only made it to 16. Some are hopeless, but some might have some potential.
Here is a quilt top I finished for our Quilts of Valor group. It is going to be a raffle quilt to earn money for buying more red white and blue fabric. I was handed this pile of squares in a rainbow of colors so I decided to arrange them as best as I could as a color wheel! I love the way it turned out and will buy lots of tickets.
Now here is the serious part of my post. Note to Self: Do not NOT use Dritz spray on anything important!! I had a TERRIBLE time quilting my last quilt with this stuff on it!!! its a NO NO.
A little like being back in grade school, with the construction paper and scissors and glue, this was an interesting exercise in abstract shapes. I see how these could be the inspiration for any number of quilt designs!
So of course when I saw this abstract building in Knoxville, I knew I needed a picture!
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
