Winter inspired

Posted by Artquilts on January - 21 - 2016

Since a lot of my quilts are landscape inspired, I tend to go with the seasons.  Even if it’s patchwork, the colors will be what I’m seeing out my window every day.  I thought you might like to see my latest.

The reason this aspen grove caught my attention was how the sun light hit the aspen trees, the blue sky, a bit of blue Green Mountain Reservoir through the trees and the small pine tree hidden among the aspen trees.

This quilt is 21.5 inches tall and 15.75 wide.  I used my hand dyed and painted fabrics and then did some painting on the quilt.

I made another quilt too, this one is 18 inches tall and 14.25 wide.  As an experiment I allowed some of the unbleached muslin which was my background show through around the edges.  The fabric was all hand dyed or painted.
