So here is my second rock cairn art quilt.
Dimensions 17 1/2 " X 21 1/2 "
Here's the details. The background for the center panel was a piece of ice dyed fabric with orange, bronze, green and several other colors. I then marbled over the ice dyed fabric using primarily chartreuse and violet, with hints of blue in there probably left over from the fabric piece I had done before. The "rocks" are machine appliqued and hand turned pieces of cotton batik. Finally the center panel is mounted on a piece of hand dyed chartreuse fabric. It really makes the center panel pop off the piece and I just love this quilt.
Today I brought it somewhere to show a friend what an art quilt was. I tried to explain it but, she just sort of turned her head to one side and I could tell that what she was thinking of wasn't even close to what I was thinking of. So, how better to illustrate the concept but by showing her a quilt. Anyway, we placed it at a distance, which is different for me since I am used to seeing it up close and man, did I fall in love with it. I really liked it before, or I wouldn't have taken it to show anyone. But, now as I step back a bit farther it really has a nice movement and unity.
I plan to use the center panel to make some postcards and note cards. But I have to get a better picture because I think there is a shadow of my knee on the left hand bottom corner. Rats! oh well back out to the cold.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work. Happy wanderings!
