I love batik fabrics, and I love fractal art designs. I wondered if I could make a wall hanging out of batiks in a fractal-like design. This is the result of that experiment and my own original design.
It's made from mostly batiks and done with raw-edge applique with fusible backing. I stitched-in-the-ditch around each shape and then free-motion quilted the background. It measures 31" x 36".
Absolutely white quilt with applique. It was stitched for the Ukrainian exhibition of textiles "Monochrome".
Great work with hand and machine stitch with white silk, gold and silver threads.
Application of birds - trapunto. Flowers are made in the author's technique. The edge of the quilt is made festoons.
This quilt was three years in the making. The top didn't take that long, though. It was deciding on the quilting that took the most time. I really wanted it to be special, so I built up my free motion skills on other projects and continued to work on it slowly. It was recently displayed in a local art gallery highlighting my Quilt Guild's 25th Anniversary along with other artists' work. I think its my new favourite!
I made a quilt for a friend going through medical treatment. She likes bison and archaeology, and this bison panel seemed perfect, so I purchased 2 panels. I wanted to create borders that would augment the design, but not take away from it. I made this second quilt for myself. While not complex, it shows how you can use a panel to create a quilt by adding interesting borders.
Last May when my mother went into Hospice care I felt the need to make something simple and colorful. I found a pack of 5" sqaures in my stash and set to work. I made "X" blocks with the warm colors and "O" blocks with the cool colors. I added some embroidery on the sashings using a sparkle thread. When I showed it to my mom, she loved it. I hung it in her apartment where it stayed until she passed away in July. Whenever I would leave my mom, I always said to her, "Ok, mom, gimme a hug and a kiss."

This quilt was made as a housewarming/friendship quilt for a dear friend in the UK. We met through TQS and although we have never met "In Person" we share many interests such as quilting, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. . . and we are both retired nurses. Here's to you Yvonne Jenkins!
quilt made from Ricky Tims e-book Kool Kaleidoscopes received as a free book when renewing membership. I just used fabric from my stash to try out the technique. A design wall is essential for this technique. This was made on a Janome 8200 machine and some of the quilting was ruler on a domestic machine.
I started these hexagons last year from scraps, put them up on my design wall in February,and could not take them down until they were together. Quarantine happened so I hand pieced all through March then didn't want to cover the creatures with stitches so I faced it! Then 'quilted" it with beads in each point. Entered it in the Quarantine Quilts contest(not accepted) but covered every stitch on the back with lille fused circles, just in case. I Love looking at this quilt and I will never forget the circumstances in which it came to be!
