New Quilts
Fenced Fields
Silk and Cotton, fused, hand and machine quilted.
20x24"
This piece, once I pinned it to the wall made me think of those photo collages of David Hockney.
Here's one of his Mom. Now this is being done by lots of people, but I didn't set out to make a quilt with this in mind. It may not even look like a photomontage to anyone but me.

The pieces of silk glow against the matte cottons.

And in the garden, the red lilies have opened. A great day in the yard.

  2. I love the colors in the fenced fields. It does sort of look like a landscape photomontage. I love it!

  4. I love Fenced Fields too, the colours in the silk are sensational against the backdrop. I like the quilting pattern you've used too

  5. I think it's because I can only take in one thing at a time that I am loving Fenced Fields, first. The colors really strike me and make me inspired. The blue just vibrates. Gotta get some silk into my quilts in the future.
    Let me absorb Arbor another day.
