Years ago I did two Edyta Sitar exchanges. One for batik strips and one for HST's (Alex and Ricky signed theirs!) This is what I made from those exchanges. Kept trying to figure out what to do and whallah, the quilt fairies told me to put them all together. Pieced and quilted them up in 2016. Posted now because of Edyta Sitar doing the Quilt Show BOM for 2018. Used the tones of all the fabrics to make movement in the quilt.
New Year's quilt for Quilt fest in Ukraine. Bright, colorful made in the form of balls on the Christmas tree. Balls have volume and all want to touch them. Each ball has its own original design. The entire quilt is embroidered with French knots resembling snow. I congratulate everyone on the New Year - let everything be fine!
Scrappy Hidden Wells. I used 2 1/2 strips. This was made for my church and was donated to an immigrant family that is new in my area. It was made to be used as a sofa comforter so it is smaller than a regular sized quilt.
The difference between possible and impossible is perception. A long time practitioner of Zentangle I wanted to adapt tangles (patterns) to continuous line free-motion quilting. Several were simple, many took a little more work and others I thought were not possible. Altering my mindset from “impossible” to “I haven’t figured it out yet!” led me to discover how to quilt ‘tripoli’ one of the tangles featured in this quilt.
This quilt is a replica of a mosaic wall in the Taj Mahal. I have a photo that I had a graphic arts company blow up to 40" square to serve as the basic design. All of the vines are from a single piece of green fabric with back basting.
I made this mini quilt thinking my teacher Jinny Beyer and as a gift for her. It is a sign of respect for her and American people.
This quilt is my first American patriotic quilt and I sewed it earlier Ukrainian patriotic quilt.
This quilt is tessellation.
