Last Wednesday on my free-motion quilting post I used a photo of a pinecone. Let me refresh your memory with this photo or you can look back at how I created it here: Last week's quilting.
Mostly I'm known for my applique flowers and bargello quilts but sometimes I also make animals, insects and birds. Today I want to share some of those with you.
Up until 2000 I'd been busy making art quilts for galleries who would sell them. It was fun and exciting creating new original pieces however it wasn't very profitable. At this time, I had entered a few NZ Hoffman Challenges always having my piece accepted for travel on display throughout the different venues.
I thought it might be fun to show you some of the different art quilts I have made over the years when I realized that there is no way I could fit them all into one post so I decided I should select some categories and present several posts over the coming weeks. Today is the first group - landscapes.
Those who know me, know that the majority of quilts I make are wall hanging size. A couple, for example are Simply Sunflowers and Bargello Blues. But there are occasions when I make full sized bed quilts. Usually these are given for gifts. In fact, I don't actually have a quilt of my own design for my own bed - how bad is that?
Today I made a quilter's word search. There are two parts to this word search.
Today I had fun with my friend Sue, sewing a project for me. I had an idea and it will grow as I work on it so this blog post will continue on as I find time each month to work on it. This will be my Connect Threadz sew-in project for quite a few months to come.
When I first started quilting, I made quilts for all my children. They got quilts for their cribs when they were young. Then as they grew up I made quilts for their beds. As new quilts replaced older ones, the older ones were then handed on to others.
