Maybe I need to think about an Embellished Quilt?
Fun blanket stitching
Wondering how to add that special
touch to your latest quilt? Here are some ideas:
If your project needs a little pop,
try adding some embroidery stitches. Well placed stitches can bring out a detail or create movement.
Way too many beads
Beads are my favorite way to add a
little color, catch the light, or create dimension. If a project is looking
particularly flat, add beads. Just remember to add enough to make them look purposeful.
This is a great way to play!
Purple Piping and too much fun!
Give your project some dimension and
zing by framing with piping. Piping is a great way to add a thin line of color.
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
