Fruit of the Spirit

Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2013 

It’s time for the Blogger’s Spring Quilt Festival.

Please thank the organizer Amy from Amy’s Creative Side for all her hard work setting this up and the wonderful sponsers

This year we are allowed to enter two quilts.  My 2nd quilt is “Feeding Time.” It is entered in the Art Quilt category.

This quilt is 65 1/2″ by 75″. It’s titled “Fruit of the Spirit”

 This quilt is made of batik, my hand painted fabric, cotton.  It is my original design. The four corner flowers were cut stacked and cut freehand.   The two side panels were stacked and the design was drawn freehand and cut with scissors.

This flowerer was free cut from one piece of black and put over a batik fabric and appliquéd .  If you look you will notice that the flower contains a dove and a figure inside.  The roots (cursive words) were cut as one piece of fabric and appliquéd.

Have fun looking at all the quilts and take time to vote on your favorite!

Feeding Time

Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2013

It’s time for the Blogger’s Spring Quilt Festival.

Please thank the organizer Amy from Amy’s Creative Side for all her hard work setting this up and the wonderful sponsors This year we are allowed to enter two quilts.  My 1st quilt is “Feeding Time.” It is entered in the wallhanging category.
  Feeding Time was inspired by the following haiku poem that I wrote:
young geisha delights
envisioning diamonds and pearls
koi flash and sparkle
 Size: 53 ½” X 41 ½”
This quilt is my original design.  The background is constructed using curve piecing of batik and some of my hand dyed fabric. The Black outline was cut from whole cloth and fused to fabric and then appliquéd to quilt. Tree branches are made dimensional using trapunto. Cherry blossoms are made of fused fabric and beads.  Some fish are overlaid with Angelina  fibers.


This entire quilt was constructed and quilted on my home sewing machine.
