Fiberactions

The theme this time was Nature's colors. This is not the first one I started, but when I saw the sun, I knew it was the one I would do. The fabrics are denim and upholstery samples and machine quilted. Blue will always be a color I think of when I think of nature: water, sky, bluebirds. bluebells.

The details show my version of the sun. It is made with molding paste through a stencil and was sitting around the studio for ages. The electric blue is made entirely of hand stitched French Knots. The background is a strip pieced samples I had and painted over, because I didn't like the colors.
 
The button at the right takes you to the Fiberactions blog. The quilt is a small one about 20" by 22".

A great idea to use a combination of fabrics. It's a great quilt.
