New Sunprint Mini Quilts

I finally have photos of some of my most recent mini quilts that I made before my last show. The ones in this post are all 8"x10" in size.

This piece has 2 fern sunprints on blue to green salted fabric. the prints are accented with deep green and white commercial fabrics. Free motion quilting in clear thread in the sunprints, and white for the vines.

A fern sunprint on a rose, green and blue rainbow, with a faded sunprint leaf on soft blue with touches of green and rose. Stitching around appliques in pastel variegated thread. Free motion quilting accenting the sunprints and filling other areas.

Sunprint of Nicotiana flowers and grass over a pastel rainbow of colors, bordered with a tone on tone white fabric. Free motion quilting accents sunprints and fills the borders with vines.

A fern sunprint on fabric painted  with rose and yellow, which mix to add peachy tones. All of the colored fabric pieces are from a single sunprint panel. An ivory with gold metallic flecks fabric separates the colored sections. Free motion quilted heart vine fills the corner section, while vines fill the ivory strips.

Maple leaf sunprints on rose to peach fabric with lower right section from a more rose area of the fabric. Upper right section of a peach commercial fabric with the ivory with gold metallic flecks. Free motion quilted with clear thread in the sunprint section, and vines and heart vines in other areas.

This piece is done with colors I don't use very often. I have been doing a few more prints on shades of orange, peach and yellow for those who decorate with those colors. I had a couple small pieces of commercial fabrics that coordinated very well with this sunprint of ferns and a butterfly. The deep brown fabric has a mottled look, and the angled piece is a deep gold with rusty leaf designs, and metallic gold flecks that are the same as the ones in the ivory fabric. The whole piece is free motion quilted with clear thread. The vine design can barely be seen in the lower left, as well as in the lower brown section, where the quilting does not show in the photo.

All of these quilts are available for sale, just email me if interested. I am still working on photos of many of the 5" x 7" mini quilts that I also made, and will post again soon.

I am a former textile artist and new pattern designer with a degree in horticulture, wishing to share my love of nature, flowers and gardens with everyone through my photos, sunprinted fabrics, and now pattern designs. Chronic Lyme Disease has caused major changes to the direction my life. I have to limit the amount of time spent digging in my gardens, and quilting has become more difficult. I discovered pattern design as a way to get art back into my life. I now use my gardens and photos to inspire designs that can be used on fabrics and print on demand items.
