These one-of-a-kind quilts are paintings "drawn" with fabric and threads. The quilts are detailed and labor-intensive, yielding a beautiful end-product that will be a show piece to accent your home or office.
A carefully chosen, large variety of fabrics are cut, layered and fused to create the eye catching images in this pictorial landscape quilt. Dense quilting with several different variegated threads, gives additional texture and subtle color to the scene. The edges of the art quilt are finished with multiple layers of zigzag stitches in various colors reflected from the quilt.
The result is a stunning art quilt that evokes memories of rock formations and lakes in the Sedona, Arizona area.
Thread Painted Irises
19" x 38"
This art quilt was created from an abstract painted image on black fabric, which was then cut and pieced with plain black fabric to create a quilt top. The images of whispy irises emerge in the detail of thread painting done in various colors and a dense background quilting design done in black thread. The piece is framed by a tiny white corded flange and a black binding with touches of color.

This quilt of a twisted pine growing on a volcanic rock slope was made with tiny snips of colored fabric spread like "paint" to create the image. The sky is a single piece of hand dyed fabric. After the fabric bits were arranged, the entire quilt top was covered with a mesh and heavily quilted to add texture and secure the fabric snips.
