Bloggers Quilt Festival - Autumn 2013

AmysCreativeSide


It's that time of year, when all of us who don't get to go to Quilt Market/Festival can at least have a virtual quilt show of our own.  Thank you to Amy's Creative Side for hosting.  Welcome to anyone who has come over from the Bloggers Quilt Festival website, and thank you for visiting.

This is "Leaf" an art quilt that I finished recently - made as a result of two separate workshops, a couple of years apart. Because there are so many sites to visit, I won't keep you long, but if you are interested in all the details, you can read them here.

Beautiful work! I just love the combination of colors in this one with the black. The 'leaf' lettering and the stitching are the perfect touches.:)

Love the subtlety of this piece and how you've combined techniques and put text into it.

I'll be following for sure because I'm just in Victoria where our chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild is getting underway

Gorgeous! So simple but intricate at the same time. And maple leaves are always close to my heart (I'm from SK. How's the weather out west?)

Leanne said...

This is stunning! I love the dense quilting, and on this quilt it is amazing.

Kris said...

Wow I just love this so much. I love the overall look of it for sure but I love all the elements in it. I am glad you linked to the bits about the techniques you used. I am really just fascinated by this quilt and want to sit down and try some of the ink and paints. :)Great job!
