The second of the three larger quilts in the 'Wild' Flowers! series. I expanded the designs of my whimsical flowers with unusual shapes and layers. I added pieced prairie points and vines with dimensional flowers.
This quilt went missing after the IQA Houston show in 2011. I still hold out hope that one day it may be seen or found by a caring person and returned to its rightful home.
If you see this quilt in any location, anywhere, please do contact me.
Designed to be cheerful, colorful, and festive - it's a party! I did extensive beading to add interest to both the design and theme.
The flowers, stems and leaves are appliqued in such a way as to remain very dimensional, creating a layered look.
The top portion of the pitcher is embroidered with rice stitches rather than quilted in order to keep it dimensional.
The gold 'coils' spiraling outward are bobbin-quilted with Razzle Dazzle thread.
This banner shaped quilt is the third of the 4 larger "Season" pieces in my ‘Wild’ Flowers! series. It has my signature 'open-centered' flowers, and pieced prairie points. It was designed to emphasize texture, layering, color and movement.
Embellished with metallic thread, beads, Swarovski crystals and
various sizes of pieced prairie points. Construction methods include machine piecing, machine and hand appliqué, paper piecing, and domestic machine quilting.
