Project Description

What are you most proud of? This quilt, like all of my work is a one-of-a-kind. I start with an idea and work through every component and element from start to finish working through all the snags and unexpected problems (or happy accidents) until the end. I love how I got to use so many techniques within this quilt and they all work so well together. This piece took first place in the 2009 Quilters Treasure Contest! Quilt size is 53 inches x 45 inches What advice would you give someone starting this project? Whenever creating an Art quilt, be flexible.. Allow yourself to change techniques or ideas as your quilt evolves.

What you will need

  • Silk dupioni
  • applique
  • machine embroidery
  • fabric paint
  • beads
  • free-style machine quilting
