"Bench Garden Art Quilt"
14"x17" - ©2007/04 - 240.00
This quilt was inspired by a garden with a bench in my back yard. The wall is primarily cotton fabrics, with some silks. The bench is cotton fabric with shading and extra color added with wax pastels. The tree and flowers are also fused applique, with the tree leaves cut from different fabrics. The Irises were accented with dye pens to deepen their color. The pink flowers, that I think of as possibly petunias, have been accented with beads. The clouds in the painted fabric sky are shimmery organza scrunched and quilted to the surface of the quilt.
Reproductions and note cards are availible.
