Quilt projects


"Flaming Feathers" 22"w x 46" c2005


"Flaming Feathers" detail c2005

Aside from all the wildlife that abounds nearby, I've been creating up a veritable storm myself. I'm not sure just where all these ideas are coming from or how I earned so much enthusiasm for my work, but things are humming along beautifully. Maybe having bunnies and cats reproducing at my front and back doors is the inspiration for my own creativity. Who knows? All I know is that I'm having a ball and loving every moment of it!

Above is the almost-completed "Flaming Feathers" quilt - a full shot and a detail of the machine quilting. It still needs a binding and rod pocket...

Below is the background for a brand new quilt - maybe tomorrow I'll post the top as it is evolving in the studio. But for now, the background is bold enough to command attention... I took this photo from the balcony overlooking the studio so it's not a straight-on shot, but you get the drift from the photo.

I thought you were in an artistic slump?! So it's the fornicating bunnies...no wonder I'm uninspired. All I have is a next door neighbor who has been trapping skunks and shooting them. A lovely smell that permeates even air conditioning.

Flaming Feathers is stunning. Can't wait to see what goes onto the eye-catching background of the other quilt.

Flaming Feathers is awesome! I love it! And the bunnies and kitties are so cute :-) We had a naked baby bird show up in our driveway. It didn't make it through the night :-(

"Flaming Feathers" is such a vibrant piece! Nice!

The last quilt is so different, also. I find it calm and cool-mostly calming. The term cool implies a feeling of sea-blue coolness that I feel inside when looking at the quilt.
