I’ve been busily working on a few new art quilts for my etsy shop. It has been depleted, which is a good thing , of course. I was happy to sell a few quilts to customers and six to a fiber art gallery. That is the point in having a shop. But my etsy shop looked so empty, I had to kick it into high gear. So I’ve made several lately and working on some others. Here is one I finished recently and listed. I always use Setacolors to paint/dye my silk backdrop and whatever else I ‘m going to use for that matter. Here’s a picture which shows a bit of the background colors, that I really loved. After quilting I was not real pleased that I had covered the whole background up, my beautiful painted silk. But I liked the crazy bright thread play, you can’t have it both ways.
The quilting was lively you might say and I used some very intense watercolor pencils to add more color. This is one brightly colored quilt. Here are a few shots of the finished quilt. I’m warning you, if your eyes can’t stand bright light, don’t look at it without sunglasses. That’s my disclaimer.
