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.
This quilt was created by printing a picture I took while sightseeing in one of Alsace's Flower Towns. The photo was printed by Spoonflower on cotton. I created a quilt sandwich and then densely thread painted over the picture. I used over 25 different thread colors in thicknesses ranging from 30 to 100.

This quilt was made for the exhibition "Blossoming Ukraine" NadelWelt in Karlsruhe. I really love the application and I wanted to show with this technique how beautiful the nature is at any time of the year in my country. All appliqué with open cuts, it was difficult, but interesting to do.
