Spring Fever

Has anyone else been following

Project QUILTING Season 4


 the Project Quilting Challenge at Persimon Dreams.  I have been on the side lines for the last two challenges.  Life just seems to get too busy and quilting ends up being set on the back burner.  I looked up the challenge on Friday night.  It was to use an artists work as inspiration.  I followed the link to Annie Young Arts.  I was stunned to find out that she is a blind artist.  Her works are completely inspiring.  I love her use of color, so bold and vibrant.  I thought I would set to work early Saturday and use some of her inspiring works to use on fabric. I personally love flowers.  It really doesn't matter what the kind.  I have an over abundance in my yard.  I thin them out each year to make room for a new species.  I love each one of them.   So with inspiration from Annie and my own yard, this is what I finished up.....




I call it "Spring Fever".  It is the first mini sized quilt that I have made.  It measures 13" x 18" .  I used batiks for the entire piece.  Most of them were out of a Rainbow Batiks Charm pack from Moda.


 
Batiks have a way of looking like the natural flowers.  I was so surprised that I got it finished in one afternoon.  Maybe, I will get the opportunity of working on the next challenge.  It is never too late to join in the next challenge.

  7. Just wonderful. I especially liked that the thread work and the applique worked so well together to make something more than the sum of its parts.
