Is It A Quilt Or A Pillow?

While I was making Olympic quilts I started one that I thought would be a great small wall quilt.
When I put  it on the design wall I realized there was not enough happening to make it an interesting quilt.
That is when I decided it would make a great pillow. I quilted it and stuffed it very full so it stands up on the couch.
Fast forward and I have recently finished quilt pillow number 5. They are all quilted and each different. I call them ART pillows as each was carefully composed and quilted and finished as an expensive custom pillow is.
This is the front of Art pillow 5 before it was made into a pillow.
Here it is after it became a pillow.
These two pillows coordinate well.

7 MORE DAYS To See Florida Ice

Sacred Spirits 43wx89h
Sacred Spirits is another one of my best Ice Tapestries.
Unfortunately if wasn’t in the show as there was a limited amount of space to display my work and this was just too big.
It is a very large – 43 inches wide by 89 inches long.
I included it here so you can see it.
It is quite different than the rest of my work.
I feel the Ocala Cultural Arts curators did a fantastic job selecting work for the show and hanging the show to highlight each work of art.
I hope if you haven’t had time to see the show I hope you have plans to see it before it closes.

I hope you won’t miss it and then ask yourself why you didn’t get there.

My Talented Friends

I already shared the work Beth Sherman and Robbie Porter Payne did with my Dye Dogs.
In addition to sharing those we each shared what we had been working on.
Beth has done a lot of research and work recently with bleeding tissue paper. She used it on fabric and other surfaces. Some of these pieces were ones she did previously and now layered the color on from the bleeding tissue.  I was very impressed with all the different ways she used it.
robbies nature quilt1
This is a quilt Robbie made a while ago. I believe it was for a nature challenge. I was impressed how tasteful if was with so many different stitches and embellishments. It worked because it had a limited color scheme, yet many values of each color.
It’s great to have such wonderful girlfriends who enjoy the same things I do and continue to add to their repertoire.

People have commented they see different images in my work. This is totally serendipitous as I really don’t know what the finished piece will look like until it is done. Each piece I do is manipulated differently than anything else I have done.
Do YOU see anything hiding in this one?
