Winter, The Art Quilt

My art quilt entry in Amy’s Creative Side Bloggers’ Quilt Festival is the Winter piece of my four seasons quartet. Yup, just like Vivaldi, only without the music.

Please check out all the other wonderful entries in this online quilt show as well. Voting for favorites in each category runs from November 1 to 7, with winners announced on November 8.

winterWinter is a spare four patch design using Vicki Welsh’s hand dyed fabric, batiks, and a Lonni Rossi print. I quilted it with wandering curved lines using a walking foot. It measures 18.5 by 31 inches. To me it evokes snow drifts and cracked ice puddles, and echoes the subdued colors of winter.

A Rainbow in Broken Glass

I decided to enter a quilt in the ROYGBIV category of this fall’s Bloggers Quilt Festival  sponsored by Amy’s Creative Side. For more information on this great online quilt show go here. Please check out all the other wonderful categories of entries as well. Voting for favorites in each category runs from November 1 to 7, with winners announced on November 8.

About a year and a half ago my husband and I took a road trip through southeast Ohio into West Virginia and back through Kentucky. One of our stops was the Blenko glass factory in Milton, West Virginia. My favorite sight was the huge outdoor containers heaped with pieces of shattered glass, sorted by color.

I found that mental image niggling at the back of my mind when I began randomly sewing small scraps together according to color groups. They evolved into Broken Glass.

Broken Glass

It measures 34 by 37 inches, is embellished with hand dyed seam binding, and was quilted by me with a walking foot.
