Day 3 of 5 Day Art Challenge

Today, I’ve chosen 3 of my own personal favorite art quilts, allquite different from one another.  The first, Across The Pond, is one of my recent pieces which was begun in a class by a wonderful artist and teacher, Elizabeth Barton. It’s based on some photos of the Marine Laboratories in Woods Hole, taken by Andy Sexton. Perhaps more planned than most of my work but I learned so much in the making of it. I actually did this after the class because I had to get home to dye all the fabric to make it.

The next is a digital printout of sections of a watercolor I did, then appliqued the pieces onto a fabric backdrop, then quilted it. It reminds me of early days in San Francisco hanging out drinking espresso, usually laced with good stuff, with good friends.

Tea For Two was one of my first art quilts made in 2012. It hangs in my kitchen.

  1. I love your across the pond quilt- The blues just jump off the screen, and the composition is really lovely. So fun to find out they’re from Woods Hole, I spent a wonderful summer researching there many years ago- it’s a wonderful place.
