CONSTRUCTION NO. 6…mounted on stretcher bars…SOLD

I have spent the last few weeks finishing some quilts and submitting to exhibitions.  I don’t want to post photos of the completed quilts until I know their fate, which may not be for a month or so.  I’ve also started on a few that I want to submit for jurying, so, since I am not ready to post those either, I thought I would show you some of work that I completed this past year.

In Construction no. 6,  I combined fabric that I marbled with a modified photograph I took of the sky and mountains in our yard.  I converted the photo to a black and white image, added a touch of blue in the sky, and printed it with pigment inks on cotton fabric.  The marbled gray circles reminded me of underground rock formations, so I continued that theme as I quilted the piece.  By quilting the background in a simple grid pattern, the quilted rocks that tumble from corner to corner became more prominent,  giving movement to a linear design that might otherwise be too still…from the studio

  4. Stunning – I love the contrast of the contour stitching on the rocks combined with the grid pattern! =D

  5. I love the texture! I think I`m going to try my hand at something like that, as I`m a crafty geology minor (business major, for the curious)
