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?
During the Christmas/New Year period, I like to catch up on some unfinished work or make a start on a new project - time permitting of course. It is not always possible, but this past season I did achieve more than expected. I remade one of my patterns in new colors, I quilted another which had been waiting for over a year to be quilted and I finally wrote up and made a new sample for my Bargello in Summer pattern.
