Moonlit Jacobean Garden


Moonlit Jacobean Garden 11"W x 13"H $350

This is the quilt I finished today. It was designed and assembled months ago. Today I quilted it and finished the edge.
I used a zigzag finish on the edge which is one of my favorite ways to finish the edge of a quilt.
It only works on fused or other firm quilts. Don't ask me how I know!
All the fabrics are either hand dyed or hand painted. I love the textures in some of these fabrics.
I back all of my small leftover pieces of hand dyes with a fusible and have them ready when the muse tells me "Kay, go design a quilt top!"

Like an Amish quilt this uses subtle colors and bright colors.

I hope you enjoy this puzzle.

ooo I like this. I don't normally like anything as abstract as this, but with the various natural looking elements in it, this piece speaks to me. Love the colors too.

I love the natural elements too - so much movement in it...

How good! Jacobean fiber art got a bit stuck, I believe; as a nostalgic art, it doesn't seem to develop any further, but you gave it the fresh push that it was waiting for.

Maybe I'm wrong but this looks really different from most of your quilts but I really like it!
