Featured Quilt - Colors Dance Across The Quilted Canvas

One of the joys of quilting is the different mediums that quilters get to work in to express their vision. They can use anything and everything, from paint, to beads, to sticks and leaves, to enhance the look of their work.

Vitamin Field by Miyuki Humphries, featured at Houston 2021, uses different painting materials so that when you look at it, you aren't sure if it is a painting or a quilt until getting up close and really taking a look. She says, "I made vitamin colors such as orange, yellow, and yellow-green with acrylic paint, colored the fabric, and made a quilt that makes people who see the quilt feel good."
