Well, as I wrote yesterday, I have more little quilts to show. The little art quilts in this post are 5"x7" in size.
The flower in the bottom photo of the left quilt and the flower in the lower quilt has a bee and butterfly visiting it.
A fourth piece in the group that I did is available at my Etsy Store, It has a couple pieces of a green fabric accenting the photos. They all are quilted using a white thread for the free motion vines.
These two little quilts began with sunprints of ferns. The left also has butterflies printed using a mylar confetti. The left piece is done with a pastel rainbow of colors and pastel variegated thread for the quilted vines. The right one is made using a piece of a peach commeeercial fabric along with an ivory and another section of the sunprinted panel. It's quilting is done with clear thread. Another mini art quilt in similar colors with a Maple and fern sunprint is at my Etsy Store, in addition to a couple larger pieces in the previous post.
This piece is constructed similarly to the above Pastel Rainbow Fern. It has a sunprint of a Polemonium, or Jacob's Ladder leaf, and a Nicotiana flower on a medium colored rainbow. It is set off by ivory fabric with metallic gold flecks in it, and variegated free motion quilted vines.
One of my favorite perennial flowers are the hardy Geraniums. This is a print of leaves and flowers that were dried last summer, and used this year. The flowers turn out very papery, so the flower images are not very sharp. The sunprint is balanced out by a corner of a deep purple mottled fabric.
This green piece is constructed the same way as the lavender Geranium one. It is a print of a fern with individual Garden Phlox florets. The corner of this piece is a deep green fabric.
Another piece that uses a dark colored corner block. This one on the left quilt is a cobalt blue, to go with the sunprint of Maple leaves on the left over a very pastel rainbow of blue to pink to green. Another piece of fabric in a brighter rainbow with salt patterning also adds to the piece.
And now for the snow. Last winter, we did not have any measurable snow until way into the new year. Last night we had our first measurable snow for this season. I had to take a few photos, and here they are:
This was the view from the deck. The mountains and Towanda are hidden in the snow still falling. The branches of the Walnut tree make a neat frame for this photo.
The best thing about the snow will be that our well should now be getting some more water back. We have had a couple of rains, but the snow melting should soak into the ground very well.
More quilts will be posted in a day or two. I am also adding to my Etsy Store, so keep checking back there.
