"Wallflowers: #5" ©2010 Diane Evans (Private Collection)
It’s that time of year when Amy of Amy’s Creative Side begins her Blogger’s Quilt Festival. This event is always so much fun – we all have the chance to view each other's favorite pieces and to share the stories behind our creations.
My entry is an art quilt that I made last year entitled “Wallflowers: #5.” I’m especially proud of this little quilt, since it was juried into the 2009 National Small Art Quilt Works Exhibition at The Main Street Gallery in Groton, NY, and was subsequently sold by the gallery. It was made with fabrics that were hand-dyed by Judy Robertson, and the piece is machine appliquéd and machine quilted with Sulky rayon threads. I’m always happy when I’m putting flowers in my creations – if they won’t grow in my garden (and they don’t), at least I can put them up on the wall. They don’t need watering, either.
Do visit Amy’s site and take a look at all the fiber artistry on display there – you’ll find it’s a real “treat” (pun intended).
