This art quilt is fused on a black background leaving a space between shapes to show a black outline. it has more than 500 pieces and while it was time-consuming it was worth and a lot of fun. it just won a second place award.
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."
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.
