Raw edge pieced and quilted
Stunning! A true thread painting...!
Love your artwork !!
thank you so much!
All of your quilts are fantastic, your thread work is to good to be true, I love the frames, are they fabric? If not, did you have the glass over the art? I made one , but left the glass out, with the glass on , it looks like a painting.
Hi Anne and thank you for all the lovely comments! Most of the frames are wood with a few exceptions. I get my husband to make them for me. I did not use glass for the same reason you found. I also like it that people can touch the piece (I know you aren't supposed to but I do).
Calna, your landscapes are so pure and peaceful . . . and beautiful! I too enjoy making landscape quilts, but usually add too much stuff/details (the problem of knowing when to stop!). I love that yours are relatively simple (meant in the best possible way) -- all the elements are there and you definitely know how much to include to get it "just right." Perhaps that's why they seem "pure" to me; you provide the scene and leave room for each of us to imagine ourselves right there!
Thank you so much riverlovr. I appreciate your comments. I have a few more pieces on my website www.penokeanhills.com
I love this piece. Very inspirational!
thank you so much
calna, I went to your website after you responded to my comment and enjoyed looking at more of your landscape quilts. Do you use paint at all, or only fabric and thread?
I did not use anything on this piece but on others I have used crayons, pebeo translucent paints and sometimes made my own skys with the pebeo paints. I also sometimes use bleach to make a sun or a moon and then neutralize it. I hope this helps.
Beautiful work, I see some of my stash of fabrics in this piece........................we share similar taste. Thanks for sharing.
